Former Yankees one-hit wonder Shawn Chacon, upset after getting demoted to the bullpen, told the Houston Chronicle this problem began when Astros GM Ed Wade saw him in the dining room before a game. Wade wanted to meet with Chacon in manager Cecil Cooper‘s office.
“I sat down to eat and Ed Wade came to me and very sternly said, ‘You need to come with me to the office,”‘ Chacon said. “I said ‘for what?’ I said ‘I don’t want to go to the office with you and Cooper.’ And I said, ‘You can tell me whatever you got to tell me right here.’ He’s like, ‘Oh, you want me to tell you right here?’ And I said, ‘yeah.’ I’m not yelling. I’m calm.”
“He started yelling and cussing,” Chacon said of Wade. “I’m sitting there and I said to him very calmly, ‘Ed, you need to stop yelling at me. Then I stood up and said, ‘You better stop yelling at me.’ I stood up. He continued and was basically yelling.”
Chacon said that after Wade told him he needed to “look in the mirror,” it got worse.
“So at that point I lost my cool and I grabbed him by the neck and threw him to the ground. I jumped on top of him,” he said. “Words were exchanged.”
Considering that Ed Wade is buddies with all the other GM’s I won’t be surprised if Chacon’s will be blacklisted from baseball. As much as Shawn made the wrong decision to chock out his boss, I don’t blame him. I’m tired of snotty GM’s making antagonistic comments to players.
