Creating a 25-man roster
It’s early in the game, but here’s my pre-Spring Training prediction for what the A’s 25-man roster will look like come Opening Day. The bench situation is a tough call and will pretty much depend on Eric Chavez’s health. If he’s injury-free, he’s Mr. Utility. If not, he’ll go home to be Mr. Family Man.
Thoughts? Rants? Changes you would make? I’m sure Gio Gonzalez’s name is going to come up. If Gio doesn’t make the starting rotation and Geren decides to keep him in the bullpen, I would imagine he would take Blevins’ spot. And, no, I don’t have Chavez in there despite all my hopeful thoughts for him. So have at it…
