Chavez: making a mistake that could hurt the 2006 team.

I can't see this as a good thing. Have the surgery and be ready for next year. If you know you need it eventually GET IT. Don't put it off and then realize you need it halfway through the year ruining 2006.

"Chavez, 27, despite a sore throwing shoulder, won another Gold Glove in voting conducted by managers and coaches. He said he and the club agreed on an alternative to surgery, including rehabilitation and less throwing."

"I didn't have the surgery," he said. "For me, it's so unclear what is wrong with it, and I want to put it off as long as possible. From Day 1 of spring training, we'll limit the throws. No doubt in the next five years, I've got to get a surgery."
