He's going through a minor rough patch right now.........I expect him to turn it around soon.

No offense to the OP but sports is RIFE with "fans" who seem unable to comprehend that such questions are easily answered with a tiny bit of on-line research.

Often such folk (NOT the op) bluster at length about stuff they aren't even remotely up to speed on.

Just last night some blowhard was raging on "JaysTalk" about how JP hadn't used the draft to add a top drawer catcher or SS to the major league team and proceeded to illustrate the point by *****ing about the failure of "J.C. Romero" (not a slip of the tongue because when Wilner said "you mean Ricky Romero?" he didn't seem to understand) and went on about he was still in A ball (AA), was "25 years old" (23) and had been in the Jays' system for 5 years (3).

:D

That stuff happens all the time.

LOL.
Coincidently, I was wondering what happend to him too. I noticed earlier in the year he wasn't pitching when we played you guys, then just thot he was injured. I remembered he won like 15 gms in 05 and was in the rookie of the year talks.

From the Bluejays.com (googled "gustavo chacin"):
Chacin was designated for assignment earlier this year, cleared waivers and remains at Class A Dunedin for the Jays. In 11 starts, he's 1-7 with a 7.88 ERA with a .367 opponents' batting average. Chacin hasn't been the same since injuring his shoulder early last year, and he's nowhere near a return to the Majors.

Chacin should never pitch again in the major leagues(at least with the Blue Jays) again unless he pitches incredibly well in the minors. He really only had two good months with the Blue Jays and with our rotation, he just isn't needed.(I guess we should have traded him while his value was high)

Sounds like someone is having a nightmarish season.

I noticed there haven't been too many of those cologne-like promotions since. No complaints on that front...it was embarrassing.

You know...I feel kinda bad about it. Chacin showed promise in his one year...how quickly people forget that this is a guy that was 5th in ROY voting. He has a better than league average ERA and WHIP, and he had a pretty good K:BB ratio...all indicators of a pretty good pitcher. Not fantastic...but good.

He really got done in by arm problems. I can't help but wonder that the 200 innings in his first full year was a bad idea.
