Hugo Chavez : Despite Human Rights Issues, An Outside Shot For 5th Mets Starter

Posted in Baseball at 3:42 pm by

7 runs allowed over 2 innings for Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez? Hey, if John Maine has a similar outing in 3 weeks, no one will suggest he’s not gonna have his contract voided. And considering Chavez fared no worse than countryman/Amazins’ reliever Francisco Rodriguez (above, left) yesterday, perhaps there’s a spring training invite in the offing? As pathetic stunts go, Chavez is just as deserving of a week in a Mets uniform as Garth Brooks or Mike Glavine.

    GC, sorry to spoil an otherwise typically perfect CSTB post, but the pitcher on the right is actually Carlos Zambrano.
