Astros in on Shin-Soo Choo?

Less than an hour ago Jon Heyman posted a column about how the Astros just might make a play for free agent outfielder Shin-Soo Choo, who is - according to sources - looking for a multi-year deal at around $125m.

It's not surprising that Heyman would write the column, since he is an FOB (Friend of Boras), but for the second time this week the Astros are connected to a player who is expected to GET PAID.

Choo will be 32 next season and has a career .288/.389/.465 slash line, and hasn't posted an OBP under .344 since 2008.

We considered Choo, but figured he might be too pricy for the Astros. Just like we thought about Jose Abreu.
