Team reaction to Snell showing some type of life unlike the rest of the team? Disappointing, to me anyway.....
That is Pirates reliever Shawn Chacon's new nickname for starter Ian Snell after Snell's recent string of controversial comments about the team and its losing ways.
"He's like Gary Sheffield," Chacon said, referring to the Detroit Tigers' slugger. "He just says whatever comes to mind, and he wears his emotions on his sleeve. But he's also young and inexperienced."
Yes, Snell knows about the nickname.
"Told him last week," Chacon said, grinning.
I suggest that Ian Snell ask for a trade. Kid has too much heart to be connected to this organization.
