Shawn Chacon

Yesterday, Houston Astros pitcher Shawn Chacon was indefinitely suspended from the team for insubbordination. Let me clarify that slightly. He supposedly got into an argument with Astros general manager Ed Wade (and for you non-baseball fan types, the general manager is the guy who has ultimate control over personnel moves on a baseball team) and allegedly picked Wade up by the neck and threw him to the ground.

Pretty gutsy move for a guy with a career record of 45 wins and 61 losses. When I first saw the story, I thought, “Wow, there’s a guy who makes a stand for the working man. For every poor schmoe who has a mean-spirited idiot boss who he can’t stand, but also can’t pick up by the neck and throw to the ground, this guy did it for them.”

Today, Chacon was released (cut for non-baseball people) from the Astros. I also saw a picture of Ed Wade. Here he is.

And thanks to yahoo, here’s another picture of him.

That’s Wade on the left in that picture. The big strapping guy on the right? Well, he’s not a player, or a former player. He’s the owner.

Chacon threw down on a guy who looks like somebody’s grandpa. What a pansy! The Astros were smart to cut him before he regressed into an inner-city playground bully. For that matter most inner-city Houston grade schoolers could’ve probably picked up Ed Wade and slammed him to the ground.

Way to pick on the weakling there, Shawn Chacon. Don’t let the door of organized baseball hit you too hard in the ass on your way out.
