luis castillo? he's still alive?

Postby Cooner » Fri Feb 10, 2006 2:34 pm

I regularly do an "average projections" to start as a base for my own projections... basically just grabbing a couple freebies to avoid having to project a lot of players and give me a base.

After setting it up and the VORP that follows, I was amazed to see Luis Castillo still in the top 15. Then I looked at the projections, and they seemed reasonable-

3 HRs, 90 R, 35 RBI, 15 steals, .310

Are these projections terrible? Is Castillo still a workable option at 2B for leagues requiring 2B and MI despite this year's depth? I almost certainly won't be taking him, but wanted to see what people thought...

IRL he will really help the twinkies. nobody who hits 3 hr and 35 rbi (no matter how sweet his avg and sbs are) can do anything but weigh down a fantasy team.

I agree, that is a huge sinkhole for RBIs. You'd ideally like someone who can at least knock in 50-60 in your MI spot.
