Gammons on the A's plight

OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: Gammons on the A's plight

Oakland: While third baseman Eric Chavez struggles along, the A's have lost two of their best young players, shortstop Bobby Crosby and right fielder Nick Swisher. Now, pitchers Rich Harden, Kiko Calero and Dan Meyer (who overdid it with a tubing exercise, got a tired arm, never showed his normal velocity in spring training and is now resting to try to get restored) are hurt. There will be no blame placed on manager Ken Macha.


"We just are having one of those years," says GM Billy Beane. There is little Beane can do except wait and see if there are suitors for Octavio Dotel, Scott Hatteberg or the Crash Test Dummy, Eric Byrnes. (Forget Mark Kotsay, who can opt for free agency at the end of the year, because Beane wants to sign him to an extension.)

And, no, the A's have no interest in bringing back Jason Giambi. Beane wants to get infielder Dan Johnson, last year's Pacific Coast League MVP, up to the majors and into the club's lineup.

I wonder what baseball fans who do not follow American League baseball think when they read that. Crach Test Dummy indeed.

It's kind of funny, but I'm more insulted for Byrnes' sake. Gammons is such a turkey.

What I liked to hear is that BB wants to sign Kotsay to an extension!

I'm confused. When the A's traded for Kotsay didn't they have to pick up his 2006 option? Maybe Gammons forgot? I've been under the impression that Kotsay is locked through next year.
