Chacon Removes Patch and Sees Stars

Shawn ChaconSomehow I missed the Astros signing Shawn Chacon this week for $2 million. Chacon basically moves from the Pirates to the Astros.

It seems like a good signing. Chacon will be 30 this season, but he’s shown success in the past in both starting and relieving roles. Of course, he’s had moments of suckage, too. In fact, like Star Trek movies, he seems to alternate between good years and bad years. Too bad he wasted his good year in Pittsburgh. Well, I guess he didn’t exactly waste it. 😉
