But all bets are off for former Rockies -- like Shawn Chacon, who was arrested at a bowling alley last night in Greeley, where he's a hometown hero, in relation to unpaid gambling debts in Las Vegas. Of course, professional athletes are discouraged from bet-making in the first place, and Chacon continues to fit the pro description, although barely. He was drafted by the Rockies in 1996 and remained with the club until 2005, when he was shipped to the Yankees. It was downhill from there -- he went next to the Pittsburgh Pirates, then to the Houston Astros, and last season, he pitched for the fabled Sacramento River Cats.
As for the current Rockies, they're focusing on Philadelphia, not the legal system. Praise Jesus!
