I was looking at Nomar's career numbers -- awfully good. Do you think he's a Hall of Famer?

226 hrs, 1702 hits, 920 rbis

If he's a HOF'er then they need to close the HOF.

If he'd kept the pace of his first 6 or 7 seasons for his whole career, then yeah, maybe a HOFer, especially if he'd stayed at SS. But from 2004 on, he's put up .292/.346/.452 while bouncing around position to position in between long lasting injuries. Sad, but that's reality.

You're right about the rotation. Duchsherer's elbow is acting up, according to this link, and he may not be ready when the season starts. That would leave Dana Eveland as their no.1 and Jerome Williams as their no. 5! :o:

That's a rotation of pretty much 5 question marks.

It's funny, because I have read in a bunch of places that the A's could be overtaking the Angles in the West. I guess anytime a team is active in the offseason they are predicted to be good.

I'd suggest he belongs in the Hall of the Chemically Assisted.

I agree, I think the A's will finish 3rd in the division because of their pitching. I think by June you'll see Holliday and others dealt and they bring up their young stud pitchers Cahill and Anderson looking to 2010.
