Officially Jumping on the Raul Chavez Bandwagon!

The Astros have designated Raul Chavez for assignment. A catcher, in the NL Central no less, will probably be available for the Brewers to pick up in the next week or so. PLEASE POUNCE! He knows the league and is hitting .200, a whopping 100% increase from Moeller. He also has the potential for power (stress potential). This guy isn't a long term solution by any means, but he can fill the backup catcher chasm that the Crew currently is facing. If Miller goes down for a significant amount of time, the Brewers are stuck with two pitchers in the line-up every day. At least this guy is a change, which is really all we need.
