We should consider grabbing Eric Chavez

In my opinion, the Marlins should consider grabbing this guy...

 

Sure he has been through tons and tons of injuries. However, think about... Low risk, High Reward. With an invite to spring training you have many different positives. You have him trying to show a club that he can still play major league ball and you also have him showing Dominguez the ropes. Even if Dominguez where to "win" the job and Chavez performed decent with the bat in the spring he could be a cheap surprise option on the bench (Lefty Bat) and provide depth if Dominguez struggles early at the MLB level.

 

He says hes healthier then ever.

Thoughts?

Gentlemen, we can rebuild him.

 

 

We have the technology.

 

We have the capability.

 

We can make him stronger, faster...

 

 

no seriously he's broken. He's one bad hop ground ball away from completely disintegrating. I mean like bones turning to dust, vampire in the daylight stuff. He'd have to play inside a bubble.

 

He's a Chris Coghlan celebration away from a season ending injury. A hard slide into 3rd and he'd turn to jello is what I'm saying.

 

 

I'm saying... he's injury-prone is what I'm saying.

 

 

Eh but sure why not.

As its been said his back is truly messed up, I doubt he can do much at this point but really it's worth a shot maybe. But talking about some 3rd base competition or a bat of the bench how about Andy LaRoche who was recently DFA'd by the pirates, he has looked really bad but had a decent year in '09, minor league deal, more security of not falling apart mid-practice.
