The Mets are close to acquiring second baseman Luis Castillo from the Twins for two minor leaguers, according to major-league sources.

 

Mets Class AA catcher Drew Butera and Class A outfielder Dustin Martin are among the players the Twins are considering.

The deal is expected to be finalized after a review of the medical records of the players involved.


 

 

Thoughts? Twins would get ripped.

Castillo is a bad player

 

No, he's not. He's not great, but he's about an average hitter for a 2nd baseman, a good defender, and he has ok speed. He's a useful player, especially when you consider that much of his OPS is concentrated in his OBP.

I guess this is an okay trade for the Mets since they didn't really give up much at first glance, but am I the only one who thinks they probably could've stuck with Ruben Gotay at 2B and not lost much? Castillo's having a pretty average year, and isn't even stealing bases like his old self...only 9 steals in 13 attempts.

 

Kind of a "blah" trade all around...seems like the Mets just got a big name to appease the NY media.
