Well, in all fairness, they had lost eight in a row, 20 of their last 24, and Chacon hadn't saved a game in a month....I am surprised he didn't shuck his shirt and run the bases doing a Brandi Chastain.
"I'm very sorry the government taxes their tips, that's fucked up. That ain't my fault. It would seem to me that waitresses are one of the many groups the government fucks in the ass on a regular basis. Look, if you ask me to sign something that says the government shouldn't do that, I'll sign it, put it to a vote, I'll vote for it, but what I won't do is play ball. And as for this non-college bullshit I got two words for that: learn to fuckin' type, 'cause if you're expecting me to help out with the rent you're in for a big fuckin' surprise."
I work right next door to these clowns, so I know all about their losing streak and record. I still find Chacon's antics laughable. He hasn't done his job in over a month, and it's suddenly cause for celebration when he does?
I'm a bit bitter, because I think Chacon could have had a decent career as a starter before they decided to convert him over the off-season. I was hoping he could have pitched the first two innings of every game in their One Man Rotation.
Let's watch the Pirates and Jose Mesa this week. They're also on a substantial losing streak and, when/if they win next, I'll be curious to see if Mesa does a somersault or launches bottle rockets after closing the game.
I can't believe how much this "3:15 am" thing has been overblown. It wasn't 3:15 am HERE - it was 12:15 am, a couple of hours after the game ended. You'd think they literally called his hotel room while he was sleeping to fire him.
