Chavez is just entering his prime years, and will be the focus of their offense, much like Tejada was when he won the MVP. With a return to form of Dye and one more bat somewhere else, he is primed for big numbers.


The difference to me is that when the A's lost Giambi, they had Chavez to protect Tejada. Now they've lost Tejada, and they don't have a bat to protect Chavez. I have a hard time putting my money on Dye to protect him. If the A's sign a bat, someone who can protect Chavez, then I agree he could be in for a nice season. If they go with Dye, I'll take my chances elsewhere.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Just on my favorite team this year, I seriously thought I was primed for the play-offs this year:
Giambi: eye and knee problems .250 avg hurt me big time
Carlos Beltran: great when healthy, but missed almost a month
Brian Giles: same story
Austin Kearns: started of great, got injured continued to play and eventually went down for the season, he's a must for next year though
Adam Kennedy: I knew he wouldn't be great, but this bad?
Roy Oswalt: another great when healthy story
Sasaki: most saves ever by a Mariner 7 this year (5.01 era)
Brett Tomko: wasn't this guy at least supposed to get some wins?
Joe Mays: I don't even wanna talk about him

All in all a disaster. I barely missed the play-offs, and now have to deal with the keeper conundrum of underachievers with virtually no trade value.

Ouch. Rough year.

Keepers from that list:

Giambi
Beltran
Giles
Oswalt

Those are the main 4. Oswalt is somewhat of a question mark due to the 3 groin injuries and the offseason surgery though.
