    Thanks Bucket Foot. I knew he was hurt, but never really looked to see what it was or the extent. From what I understand now, he's probably done for the year. I wish I could get a paper cut at work and collect $4.7 million.
    WAR? Prove it!

    It's been awhile since I'd visited this message board (7/11/05) so I guess I'm overdue for a visit.

    My guess that Durazo would lead the team in hitting was about as wrong as you could get. A bad elbow will do that to a guy. (His last game in the green & gold was May 24, 2005.)

    However, my hotly contested assertion that the A's would not have three or more batters hit .300 or better proved accurate, though.

    My prediction that Kendall would have difficulties adjusting to the American League proved to be accurate, also.

    I guess two out of three isn't bad, right?

    After last year's debacle, I will not be predicting the A's leading batsman this year. (Let's hope the A's can avoid those dreaded elbow injuries!)
