Chili Davis chose Red Sox over Yankees in leaving A’s


Joe Stiglich of CSNBayArea has a couple interesting tidbits about hitting coach Chili Davis leaving the A’s for the same position with the Red Sox.

First is that Davis received a three-year contract, which is a big change considering he was working year-to-year with the A’s.

Second is that Davis was choosing between the Red Sox and Yankees, so he was determined to leave the A’s either way.

And now Oakland will look to replace him, with Dave Hansen apparently not an option due to their division rivals in Anaheim balking at their interview request.
