Poll: Should the Mets sign Rusney Castillo for 6 years, $50 million?

4

Rusney Castillo seems to be a good fit for the Mets. He has blazing speed and is said to be a good hitter with solid power. He is projected to be an outfielder in the majors but has also played some shortstop in Cuba. He seems to me like a perfect fit for the Mets. Unfortunately, I have not read anything connecting him to the Mets. He would not cost any draft picks or prospects, just money, and from what I've been reading, he may command as high a contract as 6 years, $50 million. Should the Mets give it to him?

Hunter Pence Trolling

+

I'm sure you all saw the signs. I think AA made some during game threads, but perhaps we should have a formal competition. Post your Hunter Pence "sign" in the comments. The one with the most recs wins. One bonus rec if you MSPaintz a sign as opposed to just typing it. Let me begin... Hunter Pence doesn't blame Beltran or Hunter Pence parks in "expecting mothers" parking only spots.

Players who had at least 20 Hr's in a season while playing 1b. List is pretty short. Good Luck!

Meanwhile, in Houston...

A's/Astros drew a 0.0 on CSN Houston. At least they showed the game in Houston--it wasn't available on local TV in Oakland.

The Mets should sign Cuban SS/OF Rusney Castillo

13

Castillo is 27 years old and can play SS and OF pretty well. He has solid speed and scouts say he is a Major League hitter. He seems like he could be serviceable at SS but most scouts prefer him in the outfield. Either way, he could help the Mets. I definitely think the Mets should do everything possible to sign Castillo, and I would be very disappointed if they did not put in a serious bid for him. What do you guys think?

"MLB.com: If you were the Commissioner of Baseball for a day, what would you do? Hatteberg: I'd put a laser box behind home plate and get rid of the home-plate umpires."

Babe Ruth made his big league debut 100 years ago, before today (7/11/1914)

His impact revolutionized professional baseball in such a way, that even though Ruth never played as a Met, we owe him our respects.

SNY Battle of the Broadcasters

Did anybody else stumble across this tonight? It was a Mets trivia game show pitting the TV crew vs. radio crew, with Burkhardt hosting (and really hamming it up). I was riveted.
