Mets Looking to Trade Castro


Apparently the Mets think that the Omir Santos who has an OPS of .650 in 2,429 minor league plate appearances has magically become the .268/.300/.437 "beast" of 80 plate appearances in 2009. Ramon Castro has hit .253/.322/.430 so far in 2009, which is 1) better than Omir Santos' line, 2) in sync with his career norms, 3) better than Brian Schneider's career averages, and 4) far, far better than Omir Santos' career averages. He should be a nice pickup for a team that actually understands how to evaluate baseball players. The Mets are not such a team.
