Congrats to ok.fester!

First half:

Well, the Rangers seem to have signed an incredible bust with Shin-Soo Choo.  He can't hit or field or seem to do anything well.  He's awful.

Second half:

It appears the Rangers signed Barry Bonds.  That's nice.

It was a crazy year for Choo.  But his final numbers look, well, a lot like his career numbers and what you'd have reasonable expected him to produce.  Mrs. Choo for MVP!  Additionally, this was the player the LSB average got the closest.  Who'd have thunk?

The commenter who came the closest in projection was: ok.fester!
