Drop Chavez a few Spots...
"Three-time Gold Glove winner Eric Chavez (news) has signed a six-year contract extension with the Oakland Athletics (news), the major league team said on Thursday. Media reports said the deal is worth $66 million, a record for the A's franchise."

This is bad news because Chavez, 26, would have been in the final year of a four-year contract this season, and would have become a free agent if Oakland had not secured his future. Which translates to career year.

Now, he has a cush ride and no need to try.

With Pujols and Arod at 3rd base, he was 3rd best at most anyway. Now I might consider Rolen before him.
