Astros Put Chacon on Waivers

The Astros wasted no time dumping Shawn Chacon yesterday, one day after his altercation with GM Ed Wade. He has until Monday to be picked up by another team. If he is not, the Astros have said they will terminate his contract for cause, which will lead to a confrontation with the players' association over the $983,607 remainder of his contract.
