Rebuilding..part of being an A's fan

Didn't we just reload when we shipped off Hudson and Mulder and what do we have left from that?  Accepting that we will do this every few years is just part of an A's fans reality. I trust Billy and feel blessed we have a visible owner who actually cares and comes to the games so I can put up with this.  
I think Gonzo will make the 25 man.  They'll ship off Kotsay to make room (probably only get some pot's and pan's in return though); they'll give Crosby one last chance to live up to his oh so distant promis; they'll pray Buck and Barton develope into solid everyday players; they'll hope Swisher learns to hit to the opposite field when they throw him slop on the outer corner.  Anderson is pretty close to major league ready so he was as important as Gonzo in this deal. I'll be there (my seat is next to Sally the bell ringer) for all the bad and occasional good next year.  But - they do need to pull the trigger on Blanton now; maybe Street also - get a SS to push/wait for Crosby and more arms.  Chavy is still too broken down to get anything
