Shin-Soo Choo Started Slow in 2010 Too

Last year, Cleveland Indians outfielder Shin-Soo Choo was the team's best hitter, finishing the year batting .300. This year, some fans are concerned with how he has been hitting the ball to start the season. After six games, Shoo is batting just .083, recording just 2 hits in 24 at bats with 9 strikeouts.

Is there a need to be concerned for Choo? You never like to see your star hitter fall into a slump like that, but let's take a look back at how he started in the first six games in 2010. During the same stretch, Choo batted just .143, recording just 3 hits in 21 at bats with 9 strikeouts.

What is this, déjà vu? Last year, Choo broke out in his next three games, and by the end of that series, Choo was batting a .323. Can Choo channel that same type of positive streak as the team begins its three-game road stretch tonight against the Seattle Mariners, the team he made his Major League debut with in 2005? Let's hope so.
