This might sound crazy but... WHIR

At this point, would you drop Shin-Soo Choo? Give your thoughts/input as to why or why not?

I only have room for 3 outfielder spots, and 2 utility spots and they go to the following, including Choo:

S.Choo, C. Granderson, R. Braun, C. Gonzalez, B.Boesch, G.Sanchez, B.Zobrist.

If I shouldn't drop him, what kind of value could I get for him, say for like a starting pitcher?

You'll find plenty of trade partners, just offer him up on the message board. The latest RotoWorld top 250 has Choo at # 52 overall; you should be able to get a top pitcher for him if you shop him to the entire league.
When asking for roster advice in these pages, remember there are thousands of different sets of league rules & many different active roster settings. If you want the best replies, be sure to include your leagues particulars in the original post

^^^ exactly. You will get no value in return if you just drop him.

dropping him no way offer him on the trade board be happy with a b pitcher

your not getting any A pitch because his year has been so slow

id rather see if you can shop gabby to somebody weak at first base add shin shoo get yourself a top notch pitcher and some sort of bat back


put up a message that your looking to shop ben zobrist gabby sanchez and shin shoo in a 2 for 2 deal you want a good pitcher and a decent batter back

Choo has a much higher second half batting average in his career, but if you can't stand having him, trade him. As others have said, you can get a good value off his potential which could land you a decent pitcher.

Cheers. :)
