Chacon to Pirates

I'm guessing Wilson will just be a guy off the bench, or the occasional 1st basemen for the yankees. And once/if Matsui or Sheffield come back, Wilson becomes only a bench player.


At this point, no way would I play him in left over Melky, and I dont know if hes that much of a significant upgrade over Phillips at first.

I think Wilson is more a pinch hitter who'll help some but becomes a bigger factor in a world series in the NL parks where pinch hitting and double switches become more important

Wilson is a good fit for the Yankees. I powerful lefty who can pull balls to the short RF in the stadium. I'd play him over Phillips,Melky, or Bernie. He should provide solid pop at the bottom of the order.

I'd play him over Phillips, I would not play him over Melky though. Doesn't hurt to have a versitile hitter like Melky in your lineup, who can bat anywhere in the lineup. Wilson's defense is mediocre at best though.

It's one thing to wish your new player well, but why would you wish ill will on Chacon? Just seems a bit crass IMHO.


Perhaps, but I don't think getting rid of Chacon was a smart move. If he turns it around it could come back to haunt the team, so obviously that's not something I should want to happen.

This is the case with any trade; the team trading a guy having problems will end up unhappy if it turns out that they got a bad deal.

I don't think he'll come back to haunt us with the Pirates anytime soon. I wish him well for what he added to the team last year.

Not with the Pirates of course, but if he becomes effective, he could have been a solid addition to a weak Yankee bullpen.

I like Chacon but unless they sent him down to AAA, they really can't afford to let him work out his problems in pennant chase like this one. Like I said, I don't really like Wilson, but from the looks of it - that's good value for a guy that has been pitching the way Chacon has.

Johnson, Mussina, Wang? Am I missing something. Say what you will, that's still a solid postseason top three.
