One good thing to come from Oakland's cry of "Uncle!" for the 2012 and 2013 MLB seasons is there is no one to block OF Michael Choice from reaching the majors.
Unless of course, Oakland decides to decelerate minor league development at the same pace it is doing so for its major league competitiveness.
"Laynce Nix (Land of Ys): More likely to hit in the big leagues: Michael Choice or Josh Bell? Or is picking between them a good problem to have?
Kevin Goldstein: Bell hasn't played, Choice had a really good year. There's not some massive tools difference, so you have to take Choice."
