since joining LA, however, he has yet to hit a homer. :-o

i agree with kentx though...he still has upside. he's only 25 and he has some pop. i dunno, maybe he'll be another pena...


Wow :-P

Chavez Ravine'll kill ya... :-/

I agree. In my mind there is no doubt his PT will be limited. I think that he could end up with 15-20 HRs and a .250 average, in a limited role (less than 400 AB). If something happens and he ended up being an every day player, I don't think that a 30 HR season is beyond the realm of possibility.


I agree. He doesn't have a job, as of now, and until he proves he can hit, and hit lefties, he won't get more than 400 AB in a platoon job.

He draws some walks, but I read he could be tied up with inside fastballs and, as people learned this, he struggled, especially when he got to LA. If he can adjust, he could become Adam Dunn lite (as others have said - .250-.260/30HR/85 RBI). Until then, I agree that .250 (likely less) and 15 HR in 400 AB. Only useful in very deep ML or NL only leagues.

if you like a guy who will hit .250-260 with 30-35 homers then go for it. In a h2h league you need a guy who is a little more consistant at 1B in order to compete

I like Choi. He's one of my top sleepers.

There are a number of players who have had a tough time adjusting to the ballpark in LA but who have turned it around when given enough time.

Choi has the power but it will take a while for the BA to catch up. He is great to draft late or buy cheap and stash on your bench until he gets in a groove. He is an excellent keeper ;-D

Even then your AVG will take a serious hit. I don't see him over .250ish at best. In 323 career AB's he's only batting .251. :-o I'll take Dunn's AVG since I know he'll be getting the PT which means HR and BB.
