Eric Chavez Es En Fuego

Eric Chavez es en fuego.  Rough translation: The guy is on fire! Chavez went 9-16 in the Yankees split of the four game series in Detroit.

Eric Chavez You Look Hot In Yankees Pinstripes

Finally, the New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman resigned ex-Athletics hottie Eric Chavez. E. Chavez as an Oakland A Image via Wikipedia It is mind-boggling that this took so long, especially after reading a mid-January post on MLB Trade Rumors that there were a number of teams interested in him.
