I might hold on to him then...I have Cust too


Cust was DFA'd today.

I wonder if NH thinks he could teach him to play 1st?


I thought he did play some 1st in his career

I believe he did play 1st in rookie and low A. Not since.

Cust isn't happy about it.

Cust, in the AL, is a pretty good DH. He is a poor man's Adam Dunn. The last three years he has averaged 28 HR's and an OBP of near .375. Much like Dunn, you know that you have one of three possible outcomes each AB....a walk, a HR or a K. Not much else in between!

His issue has become that his OBP has declined three straight years ... .408, .375, .356. His slugging has also gone down three straight years ... .504, .476, .417. His OPS last season was .773, which is not really that good for a guy whose only value is as a hitter.

Good points Bucfan, but WHO is going to be the power threat in that lineup? Kurt Suzuki? Kevin Kouzmanoff? Sheesh! The A's lineup makes the Buccos look like Murderer's Row... Hell, if Ben Sheets stays healthy all year, he may end up with an ERA of 2.50 and 15 losses still.

Hopefully Jake Fox...

But Oakland said they are going with Eric 'Made of Glass' Chavez at DH...Chavez makes Doumit look like Lou Gehrig
