My team loses again...we never gave Craig a chance, and the one year he does play a full season, he hits 30 HR's.
He was gone to FA this year, so they gave him away just like they do to all their young guys who will make "too much" money the next year.
Yankees will use him to hit against lefties, and I wouldn't use him any other way on that team. Chacon (who presently has a 7 ERA!
) will do horrible for us the rest of the season as a 5th starter or possibly MR if we decide to bring up one of our other young arms near the end of the year. I'd much rather see Sean Burnett pitching out the string than Chacon.
