Perrotto: Yankees Would Have Released Chacon

John Perrotto:

Word has it (Shawn) Chacon was going to be released, but Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman somehow snookered Dave Littlefield, his Pirates' counterpart, to take on the remainder of his $4.15-million salary for this season.

If true, this makes the Craig Wilson trade look even worse, but it´s not as if we should be surprised. After all, it´s not as if the release of a pitcher with a 7.00 ERA is usually front page news. What´s still stunning is how awful that trade was.
