From Chavez:
"I got to that point where I was really drilling myself,'' Chavez said. "Then it got so bad I just said, 'Forget about it. Let it go.' I'm trying to keep a cool head and hoping my numbers will be what they always are. But when you're going through your bad streak, you never know for sure. It might be one of those Pat Burrell years.''


That last sentence is the nail in the coffin: He just mailed it in.
THat's not to say he won't turn it around, but he's mailed it in if he has to even UTTER that - uttering an excuse and writing it off is NOT a good sign for us. Burrell is NOT making the jack Chavey is.

That last sentence just scared the crap out of me.

Burrel makes 7.25 million, Chavvy makes 8.5 million. That is supposed to excuse on guy vs.
another?

Just because the A's continually cry cheap and
do not retain their best players, does no mean other teams will not pay the big bucks to players.
Other teams may be burnt badly with bad contracts,
but they do sign players to big contracts.
