I expected him to be good, but not this good.
.376 BABIP.
he has 7 HR, but 28.0 FB%, and 25.0 HR/FB.
he also still can't hit LHP.
vs RHP- .389/.518/.722/1.240
vs LHP- .167/.327/.214/.541


I thought Choo was going to be huge pre-season, leadoff in a good lineup, in a bandbox.

Of course, he will come back down to Earth but I see no reason to sell.

I guess it depends on what you can get for him, or expectations on Choo. if one expects 30-35+ HR then one is going to be disappointed. some may have high expectations, so some might give up more than one might think.
coming into the season I was expecting maybe around 25 HR as a ceiling, but closer to the lower 20's.

personally I own him in a 16 team keeper league, and I think I'm going to be looking for help in multiple areas.

With Choo, I expected good average, OBP, runs, and some help in the RBI/HR department. Right now, the power streak is just nice. I'm guessing he'll probably finish somewhere in the 25-30 range this season, and that will be far exceeding expectations if he does.

What are people thinking on Segura? He's playing well in all five categories. Do we think this can last? CUrrently he's Yahoo's top ranked SS. I'm not thinking that continues in the least, but is there a chance he finishes top 10? Is he a sell high at this point?

Obviously he won't stay this hot (esp the HR's) but he has a .354 career BAPIP.

What's his price tag? Would you take Alex Gordon? Alex Rios? Mark Trumbo?

Not even close on any 3, as a Choo owner.

I'd rather have Choo more than any of those 3 even if he was similar to his Cleveland numbers.
I would be looking at late 1st or 2nd round players. Longoria, Wright, Goldschmidt, Tolowitzki, ect.
if depends if you can convince someone that Choo is a player like 120+ R, 30+ HR, 20+ SB.

Thoughts on Nelson Cruz? He just keeps racking up the HRs. I guess he's not doing anything outside of his capabilities, but do you trust he'll stay healthy? Wondering if I should look to sell him while he's hot or just hold on and hope for the best.

I'm thinking of taking advantage of Longoria's hot start and sell him before he gets hurt (again). I'm really struggling in pitching, what type of pitcher should I be looking at? Wainwright type?

I would consider trumbo based on team needs. I think if you need a power infielder, trumbo can be a excellent source of that. I would not say that trumbo is better than choo, just equal but different.
