Why is Emil Brown complaining....he has not been dfa'd

So Emil Brown with is 1.4 million dollar contract is upset that he has not got the chance he deserved to play more this year?  This guy is lucky he was not dfa'd this year.  He has no future with the A's and will be lucky to get a contract offer beyond the major league "minimum" next year.  A minor league deal/offer, but nothing else.  The guy is a poor fielder, poor baserunning, and on his best day an average hitter.

If Bill Bavasi was still GM of the Mariners,  why he would be dumb enough to sign Brown, but no one else will.  The A's have a large group of outfielders to try out for next year, and no way is Brown among them.  I would sit his ass on the bench for the rest of this year, and let someone else get his time in the field and any plate appearances.   Even one at bat is taking it away from someone else who needs it to assist the A's in their 2009 evaluations.
