How Many Current A's Will Open Season in 2010??

Just curious about what everyone here believes about trades and other turnover. If 2010 is, as I believe, the target date to begin a 2000-2003 like run (we hope), how many of our current bunch will be around then??

If I had to name them, it would be:

Suzuki  Barton  Gonzalez  Sweeney  Smith  Ziegler  Casilla  Duke

And if Chavez is healthy, I think he'd still be under contract  So those 9. Though I think there's probably a 20-25% chance that Chavez's career will be over by then.

I'd love to say Ellis, but I think his value is dropping with age and an under 250BA. I think Cust will last through next season, but then get dealt. And Eveland will be dispensable as Cahill, Gio, Anderson, etc.. all begin to arrive. There's a chance that he stays and Duke leaves, however, if BB decides the price on Duke is too high and that he can get more back in return.

Thoughts??
