These rumors are getting out of control.
Jhoulys Chacin, #1 prospect in the Rockies system, has been pulled from his start at Double-A, and it is now speculated that he is part of a trade. Tim Dierkes of mlbtraderumors tells us the Rockies have announced he was pulled "as a precaution for possible, future organizational moves" and tries to connect the dots to a Jon Heyman article about how the Rockies were interested in a slew of relievers, including George Sherrill.
Could Andy MacPhail have pulled off another steal by getting Chacin for Sherrill straight up? Did we have to sweeten the deal in order to get the much covetted Ian Stewart?
Find out soon! A Sherrill trade is going to happen. Its just a matter of time now.
