OAFC BBS - All Topics: A's Baseball: Eric Chavez
hey look at this guy this yr i think hes back 191 AB .288 11 hr
I doubt he'd even be healthy enough to play if he had been the everyday starter all season.
sometimes it takes 2-3 yrs to recover from back surgery, i think the Yankees would not have him on thier team if they thought his play was a fluke or sub standard.
it helps not to have been the starting third baseman for the entire season.
He sat at home and collected $66 million and now you want him back?
Sacto - Now you have gone off the deep end. I have been in your corner consistantly on your BB criticisms. But this time, you are on your own. Chavez has to be my least favorite A'S player of all time. If Chavez is ever added to the A'S roster again , I will cease to be an A'S fan.
i never said full time but as our utility 3rd base 1st base backup he could play 90 games there geeze.
Chavez did not perform well in the playoffs, was not Mr. Clutch, and showed no leadership. He played through his injuries to get a big contract, when he could have surgery sooner and probably a faster and easier recovery. Add not a team player to the other negatives. He belongs with Arod and the Skanks and I hope he doesn't return.
2-3 hr #13 hittin .293 better then we got
The problem is this Sacto,
Inge has not hit for average, but has power, been clutch, and is a better defender. A mix of Inge, Sizemore (next year) is more durable than Chavez and his baggage, plus Inge/Sizemore bring leadership and integrity to the position. It's not hard to imagine another Chavez 'setback' if he was a trade target and/or resigned.
chavez didnt play cause he had major back issues and i agree its a risk with him in future but he comes cheap and seems like hes gettin form back hey if you can get 3 yrs at 2 or 3 mill a yr then you get payback on the bad yrs..
chavez **harden** **jaha** gonsalves** didnt play cause he had major back issues and i agree its a risk with him in future but he comes cheap and seems like hes gettin form back hey if you can get 3 yrs at 2 or 3 mill a yr then you get payback on the bad yrs..
no i get on Beane for trading good players for nothing or very bad trades on paper period....gonzo n street for a rental at 18 mill a yr worst trade in A's history hands down.. or eithier for a questionable character even Raja davis the guy is a solid player hitten .270 35 steals we got nothing for him is he better then crisp i think so.. so u pay a guy 7 mill and let a guy go making 2 mill same talent.
the prob is Beane got lucky and got some good trades even though the Gio gonzo trade to nationals still in wash favor people are blinded bye theses good trades but beane has had horrundous trades this lunitic has made that set this franchise back 6 yrs in the eithier and gonzolous street deals .
Great stuff Sacto. I'm convinced. Bring back the spry Chavez now.
Yeah, maybe we can trade Barton and some of the AAAAs as part of the transaction--you know, to provide a sweetener for the failed $66M contract prior to Chavez's impending health problems.
First we have a guy posting on the site with live Chavez stats every day and now this.
Sorry I meant Hoffman as Art Howe. My bad
The Yankees are a team that has won 70 games one of the best teams in baseball and chavez is a reg contributor on that team.
All Sacto's information will used on Yankeeography of Eric Chavez, coming soon on YES.
