Similar rate stats to his last injury plagued season.

Now we know that Shin-Soo was hurt all year, ankle and wrist. I bought and I suffered with him, night after night.

If you bought, as I did, Choo, Jackie Bradley Jr, Brad Miller, Jason Castro, Ernesto Frieri, and Nate Jones, this has been a disappointing year.

He's been so bad, not even one comment since the season started. Thoughts why he has been so bad? Has the defensive shifting hurt him this year?

Shin-Soo got his due in Tout Wars: $35.

Big jump from CBS ($27) and LABR ($25), a direct result of Tout's switching to OBP this year.

I fear that's the wave of the future (said by someone who has to figure out prices for all these different formats).

PS -- the Rangers also paid him for his walks.

I have looked a bit deeper into this, and I think that a bit more luck - 17 of Choo's homers last year were solo shots - and the fact that he might have Jurickson Profar (not Bronson Arroyo or Homer Bailey) batting in front of him might push him closer to 70-75 RBI. Kinsler's partial '13 season in the leadoff spot extrapolates to 83 RBI over a full campaign, so I'm not as down on Choo's RBI potential as I once was.

- Absolutely agree re: Rios / Choo insofar as value.

How do we know Choo won't be a five-category player? He obviously won't be a huge RBI source, but he'll contribute. I'm not too worried about the steals drying up - it's Ron Washington, men. A repeat of last year sounds good to me, and the production line has been very stable here.

I see Rios ranked considerably higher than Choo in most sources, which I question (I don't want to chase all 42 of those Rios bags into an Age-33 season). If it's either/or, I'm torn. If Choo is a round or two cheaper, and he likely could be, give me Choo every time.

FWIW he was 9 out of 11 on the road and just 11 out of 20 in Great American Smallpark.

One of my perennial fantasy favorites, but he almost certainly won't be a five-category player at the top of Texas' order. Also concerned about those 11 CS last season, and wonder if he might not run as much this year.

ZIPS ranks it as the third worst contract at time of signing, since ZIPS created: 1) ARod extension w Yankees, 2) Ryan Howard, 4) jayson Werth
