Down Goes Chavez.... Again

In past years, you knew baseball season was about to start when the news that Mark Prior was injured and wouldn’t be ready for Opening Day came out. With Prior’s career pretty much done, Eric Chavez has inherited that mantle. He has pain in his shoulder and may have to go on the DL. I used to really like Chavez, but it’s hard to be a fan of a player that’s never on the field. Chavvy and Nomar could form a great third-base platoon, where the one who’s actually healthy will get to play regardless of pitchers handedness. If by some miracle the A’s can get a full season of average-ish third-base out of those two, then that will really help their chances to catch the Angels.
