A's Chavez Wants Giambi

Athletics third baseman Eric Chavez is hoping that the A's will here his call and pursue power hitter Jason Giambi. Aside from Giambi being a power hitter and a force in the lineup, he is supposedly a great clubhouse guy who is open to working with young players. Giambi hit .247 with 32 HR in 145 games this season, but might be out of their price range a little bit. Although Giambi was injured last year, his numbers are pretty similar over the past three seasons. Giambi probably has a couple good seasons left, at least better than Jack Cust, but he won't ever return to 2002 form. 

Giambi, who is going to be thirty-eight in January, will probably get a two year deal, loaded with performance bonuses.
