    rumors: After turning down Yankees, Shin-Soo Choo's best move is to wait

  • Wednesday has been a busy day, with Joaquin Benoit going to the Padres, Raul Ibanez joining the Angels, and the Indians trading Drew Stubbs to the Rockies for Josh Outman.With news of what has happened also comes news of what may happen, so here is a look at some fresh hot stove talk, and what it all means... — SN selects Public Enemy No. 1 for every teamSHIN-SOO CHOO: Unless someone gets desperate and overpays massively for Nelson Cruz, the last free agent position player on the market who should comma夜网论坛nd a nine-figure contract is Shin-Soo Choo. According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, the outfielder turned down a seven-year, $140 million offer from the New York Yankees, who then moved on to Carlos Beltran for three years and $45 million. Had the Yankees signed Choo, they would have had no chance to reach their goal of a $189 million, luxury tax-avoiding payroll. It's going to be a challenge to make that happen anyway, but at least going for Beltran instead of Choo, and signing second baseman Brian Roberts and left-handed reliever Matt Thornton to inexpensive deals keeps the possibility alive.Choo is left with one fewer big-money suitor, but he still should be able to cash in just fine — eventually.As Passan writes, having Choo, Dexter Fowler, and high-ceiling prospect George Springer in the same outfield would be brilliant for the Houston Astros' plans to climb out of the doldrums.

Sixteen years later, Houston selected Cal State Fullerton third baseman Phil Nevin, who played just 18 of his 1,217 major-league games for the franchise夜网论坛. The Astros' No. 1 pick from 2012, high school shortstop Carlos Correa, was ranked by Baseball America as the No. 7 prospect in baseball going into this season. The 19-year-old is putting up good numbers at high Class-A Lancaster.Last year's top pick, RHP Mark Appel, also is playing at Lancaster. He was ranked as 's 39th best prospect by Baseball America. Only two teams, the New York Mets and San Diego Padres, have as many No. 1 picks than the Astros.On the opposite end of the spectrum, eight teams have never had the top overall pick.Some other notable facts:• The New York Yankees, despite all their success, have had the No. 1 selection twice. That's one more than the Baltimore Orioles, Chicago Cubs and Kansas City Royals (Oh, and the Boston Red Sox have never had the No. 1 pick);• The Cleveland Indians and Toronto Blue Jays somewhat surprisingly are among the teams that have never had the No. 1 pick;• Despite five No. 1 picks, the Mets managed to sele[......]
