I donīt know why they were stupid enought to get rid of Chacon, though. The Marlins, D-Rays, Rockies and Royals should be merged into two teams IMO.

It wasn't about the Rockies being stupid. It was simply about Chacon getting away from Coors. I think there were a lot of people who saw that Chacon would become a lot better once he got out of Coors. Pitchers just can't sustain success pitching there.

As Joe Table is about to learn. He was brutal at PNC park w/ its 785 foot left-center wall, can't imagine how he's going to do at Coors... :o:

Add Neagle, Hampton, Jennings, and Joe Kennedy to that list. Nobody can keep "acceptable" ERA numbers pitching in Coors field for half their games. It inflates them by like 1-1.50 runs. An ERA below (wow) or just above 5.00 is pretty good there. Look at Jeff Francis.
