Shin-Soo Choo

Postby kaiser » Sat May 07, 2011 8:45 am

I'm getting pretty tired of Shin Soo Choos horrible play so far this season. I hate to say it, but in my opinion he is showing all the signs of "Andruw Jones Syndrome". A player with an immense amount of talent who gets caught up in the big league star lifestyle and can't handle it, thus sending his on the field play into the gutter and never reaching anywhere near his full potential.

Perhaps I'm overreacting, but good lord, man, enough with the O-fers.

Haha, dude drives a mini-van. Being from the Cleveland area and attending a lot of Tribe games Choo is one of most laid back and down to earth players I've met. He'll be fine, and as long as the Tribe keep winning I bet he could care less what his fantasy owners think :-D

That's great, man, and I'm glad you support your hometown player. If you see him on the streets of Cleveland, how about telling him to be a little less "laid back" and start hitting the ball like he is capable of.

I'm pretty sure he drives an Escalade.

While this officer was following Shin Soo Choo I observed his vehicle, a 2007 white Cadillac (AZ.AGY6928) cross the double yellow center line in the 5100 block of Lake road.


From the police report.

Until they start losing some ball games and fall out of 1st place in the Central I'll leave him alone and let them keep doing what they're doing.

Someone will need to explain to me what the Indians record has to do with why Choo has been so awful so far.

you're definetly overreacting. The guy has 16/17 R/RBI and 4/6 HR/SB. The guy goes on a little mini hot streak and he's batting .280 on pace for 100/100 and 20/20.
