Enjoy Eric Young Jr’s great start for however long it lasts

My strong preference was for the Mets to sign Shin-Soo Choo this past offseason. However, Sandy Alderson did not want to put all of his eggs into one basket and instead spent $32.25 million on Bartolo Colon, Curtis Granderson and Chris Young. While it will be interesting to see the value the Mets get for their free agent dollars versus what Choo puts up, it will also be interesting to see at the end of the year how Choo does versus the Mets’ leadoff hitters. Eric Young Jr. has started most of the games for the Mets as a leadoff hitter. Let’s see how Young Jr. and Choo are doing here in...

Shin-Soo Choo goes deep in Rangers' win - Shin-Soo Choo (OF) Texas Rangers

Shin-Soo Choo ripped his first homer as a Ranger in Thursday's win over the Mariners.

Leonys Martin's voice needs more bass?

ARLINGTON, Texas -- It turns out that Texas Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin was calling for the ball that was dropped in the outfield during Wednesday's game, but Shin-Soo Choo couldn't hear his high-pitched teammate. "We're trying to work with Leonys on getting some bass in his voice," manager Ron Washington joked Thursday morning. "Then Choo would have heard him. It's just communication, that's all." Martin and Choo came in to field a fly ball off the bat of Mike Zunino in the fourth inning and bumped into each other.

Extra Bases: The Shin-Soo Choo blueprint

ARLINGTON, Texas -- For those wondering how Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels and his staff envisioned Shin-Soo Choo's presence in the lineup, Tuesday was Exhibit A. Perhaps the biggest reason the Rangers stretched to a seventh year on Choo -- something they only did late in the negotiating process this past offseason -- was his ability to get on base. Choo seems to do it by any means possible. On Tuesday, he was hit by a pitch in the left foot, walked and had two singles, getting on base in four of his five plate appearances.

Who has the better year: Prince Fielder or Shin-Soo Choo?
