Shawn Chacon Traded to the Yankees for prospects-

Chac' is headed to the Big Apple after all for RHP's Ramon Ramirez and Eduardo Sierra. The move has the immediate effect of weakening an already pretty pathetic rotation as Zach Day or Jason Young figure to step up into Chacon's spot ultimately, although tomorrow we'll see Jose Acevedo spot fill for that role. Both prospects need quite a bit of work (mostly on controlling the strike-zone) before they are major league ready, and though Ramirez is starting right now, both may be destined for bullpen work if they stick with the Rockies.
