It's just not the kinda problem he shouldn't be doing that kind of stuff to:
Already upset about being demoted from the starting rotation to the bullpen, Astros pitcher Shawn Chacon was suspended indefinitely Wednesday night after a heated exchange with general manager Ed Wade turned violent an hour before the Astros played the Texas Rangers at Minute Maid Park.
Chacon, who realizes he might not play again this season, admitted he lost his cool and threw Wade to the ground after Wade insisted he go to manager Cecil Cooper's office. The argument took place in the team's dining room, which Chacon refused to leave when asked to report to Cooper.
Chacon said he lost his temper after Wade cursed at him and told him to "(expletive) look in the mirror." Wade declined comment on the specifics.
"Insubordination to the club," Wade said. "I'm not getting into the details. It's an internal matter."
I don't think Chacon will be playing in the majors again. I mean, who in their right mind would sign someone who did that.
But seriously, what the hell is Wade doing yelling at his players? I mean, that's extremely unprofessional.
I hope Uncle Drayton has a talk with him about that.
