05:39 PM ET 11.18 | It appears the Texas Rangers' interest in free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury has all but vanished, but the same can't be said for their interest in Shin-Soo Choo. Choo, 31, has drawn heavy interest from around the league, including teams like the New York Yankees, New York Mets, his former Cincinnati Reds and the Texas Rangers. Choo is considered to be one of the top free agent outfielders on the market, if not the top, and is said to be commanding a contract of more than $100 million (recent reports suggest he wants at least $126 million). It's a hefty price for any team to pay, especially if teams get into a bidding war for Choo's services as is expected.

Again at his age if I am a GM I would only offer him a 3 year deal with a option for a fourth, but we all know some team will give him what he wants.

The pot holders have pics of bunnies and kitties on them...if you want to get ahold of them Aussie flags, you probably have to fly to Sydney and bring $10k or so with you to be "escorted" properly.

He's only 31. It's not like he's a RB in the NFL.
