|In a flurry of activity one Tuesday afternoon early in December, Michael Choice went from being in the running for a corner outfield spot in Oakland to in the running for a corner outfield spot in Texas, getting traded for Craig Gentry and Josh Lindblom. The good news is Texas -- for hitters, at least -- is a better place to be "in the running" than Oakland. The bad news is the Athletics must have had a reason for unloading Choice, particularly to a division rival. They used the 10th overall pick on him in 2010, after all, so to pull the plug on him now, just when he's to the point where he can contribute in the majors, is suspicious, to say the least. Granted, he hadn't delivered the big power numbers expected of him since hitting 30 homers in his first season of full-season ball in 2011, but he didn't exactly become a slap hitter. And he still walked at a terrific rate. In Texas, he may deliver on that power potential yet. Even as a rookie, he's a candidate for 20 homers in that park, making him well worth a flier in AL-only leagues. Of course, he'll have to win a job first, which is less than assured -- particularly after a lackluster debut late last year.
