Astros Continue World Series Surge With Another Signing

Set to compete for a position in the rotation, bullpen, coaching staff, on the 40-man roster is Gustavo Chacin, whom Ed Wade inked to a minor league contract. 

↵

Some nonchalant Astros fans probably see this as a roster filler, a minor signing. However, Chacin could help the Astros in their push for the 2011 World Series in the following ways:

↵

- In 2006, the Blue Jays had a "Gustavo Chacin cologne" night. Tell me the Astros couldn't use that promo.

↵

- Chacin turned out to be the Astros best hitter in 2010. He batted 1.000 and scored 1 run. 

↵

- Chacin finished top 5 in the Rookie of the Year voting

↵

-He has cool glasses...?
