Chacon Placed On Waivers

THURSDAY, 4:24pm: Chacon has been placed on waivers and will be released without pay assuming he clears.

WEDNESDAY, 10:21pm: An explanation for the suspension has come out.  Chacon had an altercation with GM Ed Wade, throwing him to the floor at one point.  What little trade value Chacon might have had is gone now.

8:01pm: It was only a matter of time.  Shawn Chacon, unhappy with his bullpen demotion, has asked the Astros for a trade.  He says he signed to be a starter and turned down more money to relieve for other teams.  Chacon would like to be released if the Astros can't trade him.  The 'Stros reacted by suspending him.

Teams probably won't be champing at the bit to add Chacon, who was predictably lousy in 15 starts.
