The great Che "Ahhh" Cho is this weeks player in the spotlight. He was bought in season 5, from the IFA market for 22.6 million. And that was nothing to sneeze at. He has won 2 World Series Rings and a Cy-Young , but what made him special was his fielding and hitting. Not often do you have a great starting pitcher who has 3 gold gloves and 2 Silver Slugger awards. You could say he was one of the best all-around pitchers in the National league. I imagine he would have a few more SS and GG if he wasn't dealt to the A L in season 21. Then again it was in the A L when he won his only Cy-Young, go figure.
His work on the mound was impressive. He has a career 245-122 with a WHIP of 1.29 and a ERA of 3.47. None of these are top-5 all-time numbers, but his 66 + plays and .243 OBP should be considered for the Hall of Fame vote. Cho is still a free agent and if a team like Cheyenne or Chicago needs a pitcher. Well....... Cho could be blowing his nose in their bullpen
I for one, look forward to seeing Che "Ahhh" Cho in the Hall donning a San Juan Cap.
