"Hee-Seop Choi should be a Red Sox and soon. He would provide great and inexpensive insurance against Mike Lowell continuing to free fall...Power-patient hitters coming into their prime performance years and are cheap should be on Theo’s to-do list. Choi reminded me a lot of David Ortiz in his days with the Twins being underappreciated within the organization since they focused on what he can’t do instead what the player could do. The only difference is that LAD has the financial resources to tender Choi a contract; the Twins did not. When Choi’s BP PECOTA card was available, it was not a surprise to see Big Papi’s 2003 campaign as the top comparable with a very strong score of 50."

Choi does have his issues - he can't hit southpaws and his swing can get a bit long - but right now he is a useful player and insurance against a Mike Lowell sucking on a daily basis. Plus, he cost the Sox nothing and has Big Papi-lite potential.


Brian @ Most Valuable Network sent me an email link to Luis Alicea's, Manager of the Greenville Drive, blog. Alicea said,

Rich Garces, who played for the GCL Red Sox last season, pitched an inning and was outstanding, striking out two of the three batters he faced.

El Guapo is trying to comeback, again. Hopefully, he can make it to Portland. I would love an interview at da man. I'll save up and spring for lunch.
