Via the San Fran Chronicle:
Like [Mark] Ellis the previous day, [Eric] Chavez said he’d be all in favor of the A’s signing Jason Giambi, who is expected to be a free agent after the World Series. Beane has said he plans to add a bat this offseason, and though the team doesn’t comment on free agents as a matter of policy, it’s likely that the A’s at least would hold some conversations with their former first baseman.
“I think it’s a great fit,” Chavez said. “I don’t know if it will happen or not, and I don’t know what the shape of the team will be, but Jason has had productive seasons in New York and there’s no doubt he could still be a good hitter. And he’d be a big hit in the clubhouse.
“Every time I watch him, it seems like he comes up with a big hit or a home run.”
I’m guessing that Chavez was watching some “Yankees Classics” games from 2006 on YES and confused them with being games from this season…
