Choo Slam

Presenting Small Sample Size Theater!

Since the trade:
Shin-Soo Choo: 14 AB, 4 hits, 2 HR 286/412/714

Ben Broussard: 7 AB, 1 hit, 1 HR 143/250/571

I totally expect this to bounce back the other way, but ouch.

The sequence that led to Choo's granny last night is one of the great things about baseball. Choo supposedly has trouble with breaking stuff. When I hear scouting reports like that, I often wonder, so why would you throw him anything but breaking stuff? Baseball doesn't work that of course. I loves me the stats but its not always cut and dried right? If Choo knows the slider is coming he can probably hit it, right?

So, bottom of the sixth, bases loaded, two already in, 5 hits in a row and Josh Beckett decides to sneak one fastball by Choo. He doesn't want to fall behind because the bases are loaded right?

Whatever the book on Choo is, you can add, "Loves to hit first-pitch fastballs." Boom! Salami time.
