How bout Jose Castillo???

I really doubt Castillo gets moved up...sorry folks. :-/

Jack Wilson is killing it in the 2 hole. Casey's 3rd, Bay's 4th, C. Wilson (;-D)/Burnitz (:-P) 5th, Sanchez (;-D)/Randa (:-P) 6th, and then Jose. He's going to be the 7th hitter for this team probably for the year...if anything he may get moved to 6th, but that would put Sanchez at leadoff...possible, but not likely.

I just picked up Castillo as a F/A while Brandon Phillips is down with a bad hammy - now I am wondering a) why I didn't pick him up sooner, and b) why he was available as a F/A?

Not every hitter regresses to the league average in hr/fb ratio. That is used for pitchers. Hitters control their own hr/fb ratio, that is why some guys hit more home runs, eventhough they hit the same amount of flyballs.

If all players hit the league average hr/fb, you would have no Albert Pujols.

Although he failed homer for the sixth straight game, Jose Castillo drove in three runs in the Pirates' come-from-behind 4-3 victory over the Brewers on Thursday.
Castillo thought he had the homer. With one on, one out and the Pirates down by one in the bottom of the ninth, Castillo hit a long drive to right that bounced off the padding atop the right field wall and was first called a home run. After the umpires conferred, the ruling was changed to an RBI double, putting both teams back on to the field. The following hitter, Ryan Doumit, singled down the right-field line to truly end the game and give the Pirates a four-game sweep of Milwaukee. In addition to the double, Castillo had two sac flies in the game, giving him 17 RBI in six games. Before May, he had only had 17 RBI in a month once in his career. Jun. 1 - 4:08 pm et

Good call, sorry about that. But also, just as a side note, for the last two years he has been at exactly 11.8%, so he has also seen a spike as compared to the last couple years. Not sure if that really means anythig or not, but something to looks into.
