Shin-Soo Choo Signs With The Rangers

If you were among the minority of Yankees fans that thought the team should trade Brett Gardner, and then sign Shin-Soo Choo, it's too late.

"Move over, Chuck Norris. There's a new Texas Ranger in town."

This morning Choo and the Texas Rangers agreed to a seven year contract, worth $130 million. Of course, that is lower than the offer the Yankees reportedly made to Choo before signing Jacoby Ellsbury. Then again, Texas... like Washington... is one of those states with no income tax, so the deal with the Rangers may turn out to be more lucrative.

    Heck, I have a house almost the size of the one I had before coming back to NY and it sat on 1 acre this one is on 1/2 acre and the taxes are 2-1/3x what I once payed...elsewhere!
