The Mets released Luis Castillo today. He is now free to sign for the league minimum for another team. He has one year left on his contract. Would it be a good gamble for the Cardinals to sign him as the primary/back-up second baseman for 2011? Castillo hit .235/.337/.267 in 299 plate appearances last year.
To add to that, maybe the Phillies would accept a trade of John Jay, whom we hear they are interested in, and Skip Schumaker for a pitcher or prospect for Castillo to play. Would this kind of move be helpful to the team or are we better off playing Descalso in that role?
LaRussa has the propensity to play veterans so this may happen. What’s your thoughts on this?
