Spring Training Prep: Top of the Lineup

New, 67 comments

The weekend of March 11-13 I'm heading down to spring training. I will have the opportunity to interview different A's players as I did last season.

I'm hoping to be able to put MP3s up of these interviews the day they happen. Yes, folks, I'm finally stepping into the audio age.

But letting you know that isn't the purpose of this post. I wanted to open up a thread for suggested questions from ANers. This is the first part of a series asking for your input I'll be running over the next week. I know the basic questions that I want to ask players, but I want to cover all my bases and make sure I'm not going to miss anything.

Keep in mind when suggesting the questions that I'll probably have max about 10 minutes with each of the players if I'm lucky. Last year it was always a fast interview, except with Swisher and Street who would've given me all day if I wanted.

With all that being said, I want to know the questions you'd suggest for Ellis, Kotsay, Bradley and Chavez. I can't use all of them, but let me know your ideas.

Thanks in advance, AN.
