Looks like the release of Luis Castillo may be coming to fruition.
BMF isn’t accustomed to my team making the right move so I was elated to hear Buster Onley’s report of continued internal discussions about eating the 6M.
I’ve always been a Castillo fan and I still won’t kill him. He’s better than he gets credit for on both sides of the ball…. But he’s gotta go.
Here are my top 3 reasons to cut Castillo:
• We’re not making a splash by signing anyone this winter so why not make a splash by cutting someone?
• It’ll be worth 6M in PR alone. If the Mets cut him the fan base will get an immediate adrenalin boost. It’ll jumpstart the fanbase to begin rooting for the ‘11 team.
• We need the future at second base and Castillo is too painfully tied to the past.
