Ed Randall on his radio show “Talking Baseball” mentioned this just before interviewing Bears manager Tim Raines, another former Yankee. MLBTradeRumors oonfirms:
How great to be able to go see Chacon pitch again in person — makes me think about how the Yankees could use him again now. After all, Derek Jeter stands behind his former teammate’s character, despite what Astros manager Wade said about the altercation.
Always thought Chacon got a raw deal from the Yanks. Of course his effectiveness had declined – He’d been pitching hurt (knee?), his start dates became irregular, and then rumors about moving him to the bullpen hung unresolved too long.
