I knew Chavez has had his issues regarding injuries over the last few seasons, but I did not know it was quite this bad. He's a damn good third baseman, and has always been one of my favorite players on the A's. I know a lot of people on here don't like Oakland, but it really is a shame to hear about this issue afflicting such a great player. Here's to him pulling through.:gulp:

To be honest, I thought he retired 2-3 years ago. :redface:

He's reached Pavano levels of inactivity.

Chavez was pretty darn good, but Crede deserved a couple of those Gold Gloves.

He's just another one of the A's that had a severe run of injuries or poor performance after testing began.

You got that right. It showed what a travesty the GG voting has turned into.

I hate to see anybody suffer career-ending injuries, though.

I hope the guy can get some more playing time before he hangs it up. This is exactly why GM's should think twice before inking a guy to a long term contract.
