Musing about Ruben Gotay

Given that we're all unreasonably excited over the return of Luis Castillo - thanks to the utter impotence of his replacements - I happened to click over to the Baseball-Reference page of Ruben Gotay. I've always maintained that the demise of the 2007 (and beyond) Mets started with the trade for Castillo and the relegation to the bench of the successful Gotay-Easley platoon, but perhaps that's just me. Then, of course, we inexplicably cut Gotay in 2008 after spring training, undoubtedly because he lacked grission, bunting ability, or whatever. Anyway, Gotay is now 27 years old and playing at AAA Memphis. His OBP is .414, which appears to be no fluke (it was .429 last year in 479 ABs, and his walk numbers have always been good). He's slugging .425, and has 9 homers on the year. OPS is .839. Just wondering - what sort of price do you think he'd command in a trade? Do the Cards see him as a future starting 2B or just organizational filler? He'd be an instant upgrade over anyone we have right now.
