Choo Freeman was released by the Rockies. Should we bring him in for a spring training look? Sure, he isn't a super star but he was once a top notch prospect (1st Round Pick) and a hell of an athlete. He plays CF and had a career minor/major league fielding % of .980. He had a couple of big minor league seasons and would be very good defensively.

Sure, he isn't anything special- but I'd give him a chance.

Choo Choo and D-Train on the same team!

If I recall, we tried to get him once or twice, so if he has anything left...I'm sure Beinfest'll bring him in.

If it doesnt cost us anything, why not... The more competition we have for the CF job, the better were off

He's no Shin-Soo Choo.
That's who I thought this post was talking about at first.

I have no problem with inviting him to camp.

He can come to camp but I doubt he is anything better than what we have already

Looks like someone mixed up another batch of 5 tool Kool Aid.
It may be the beers but this is funny stuff.

Assuming He can hit like Reggie and play CF like Reed, he might actually get the job. How scary is that?

Why would you want a guy from the Rockies that couldn't hit playing half his games at Coors Field?

That is so my new sig.

I'm pretty sure that Coors has been dead the past couple seasons because of the humidifier they keep the balls in. Here are the HR totals for the Rockies as a team the past 4 years.
2003- 198 (6th in MLB)
2004- 202 (9th in MLB)
2005- 150 (19th in MLB)
2006- 157 (26th in MLB)

I'm not saying these numbers have been entirely determined by the adulteration of baseballs there, or that Choo is a good player. I just think it's kind of an unfair statement to say that he couldn't hit in Coors, because nobody could lately.

I think he deserves a shot, why not add some heat to the competition.

No reason not to. I remember some of the same pessimistic comments last year this time against players such as Uggla, Alfredo, and Ross. If it dosen't cost much, and it won't, then he's a worth a look see.

What an awful analysis.

You're so full of yourself. You think because you're in a PhD program at a decent school (notice I didn't say top, because that would imply you are at Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, Yale, etc.) you know all.

You've got a lot to learn about life.
