According to MLBTradeRumors.com, the Athletics have signed Shawn Chacon. Yes, the same Shawn Chacon that beat up his former GM, Ed Wade. Chacon last pitched in the Independent League, with the Newark Bears, where he put up decent numbers. I don't really see much upside in this move, just thought it is somewhat interesting and quite out of the blue. Do you think he will get a shot with the big league club? Or will he be used as a mere minor league roster filler, with only a chance to see the Majors once again if an injury or two or three occurs?
