CS in Bay Area baseball insider Michael Irvin stress from the Oakland -- media days get a look at the -- and a look at the a's new revamped lineup are you more impressed. With their lineup now that you were a year ago at. This same time yeah I am but I have to qualify that because at this time last year they had yet added Nomar Garciaparra. Or Orlando Cabrera which they did -- spring training but. The lineup does look certainly a lot better than it did at the end of last season. Now -- -- Coco Crisp you brought Jack Cust back in the big addition Kevin Kouzmanoff that kind of takes away the mystery of Eric Chavez so right now I think it's a pretty good lineup. With that said Eric Chavez was still to start -- show at media day we know about the bad back but it's more. And more concern is his shoulder and will he be available will he be the Eric Chavez have all come this time comes spring training. While I don't think we're ever gonna see there are visible in his the first one to admit that he needs a six time gold glove winner he averaged thirty plus. Home runs on the plus RBIs for next 45 year stretch but. The shoulder is good the back is good we've heard this before this time here. For America but really he's looking at it realistically he's going to be more utility -- got more of the role that Bobby Crosby played for the a's last year bounced around the diamond.
