Shin-Soo Choo Trade Rumors Heating Up

After getting swept by Minnesota this weekend, it is pretty reasonable to assume the Indians won’t be buyers at the trade deadline. The rumors are also heavy that they could be sellers with Shin-Soo Choo at the top of the list.

Suitors include the aforementioned Reds and the Pittsburgh Pirates.

It’s all so sad for Indians fans. Instead of being contenders themselves, the Indians can potentially make small market dreams come true for the Pittsburgh Pirates. This comes only a few years since the Indians helped fuel a playoff run for the equally small-market Milwaukee Brewers with the C.C. Sabathia trade.

Maybe some day the Indians’ small market dreams will come true. It doesn’t appear to be happening this year, though.

    how would we have had Choo for 2.5years?

    this is year 5 of Choo being the lynchpin of our offense (negating 2006 and 2007 when he was part-time).

    Would the Indians trade Soo Choo for Mesaraco, Leake, and Phipps?
