btw good thing you didnt change your name to padsin10. that wouldnt have worked out well either :-D


Im happy about having the best starters ERA in baseball, and probably the best bullpen as well. Im not happy about Brad Hawpe

So you are an A's fan? Padres have the 3rd best starters ERA in baseball and only yesterday did they pass the Brewers for tops in the NL.

As for Castro, he's ok but this is just a hot streak. He might hit .300 but his power is only in the teens and his speed is probably only in the teens so it will be hard for him to be an elite level player just yet. His upside is probably current Jeter and he easily could be more Howie Kendrick.

I'll give him 20-25 steals for this year but I like the Jeter-upside comp.

Just another ho-hum day for Starlin.
4 hits, 3rbi, 2 runs and the bum only stole 1 measly bag.
What a waste of a 19th round pick!

If you use your thread to celebrate Castro and not yourself and where you picked him, you might get less detractors..... ;-D

Is the derek jeter-lite comparison still the general consensus here?
It appears to me that when this young man gets on a roll, the sky is the limit.

When you say sky, what are you thinking? You think Castro can be either a consistent 30+ base stealer or 20-25 HR guy for pretty much the rest of his career? :-?

hi guys. Not sure why the kool aid hasnt kicked in yet but i am not as high on Castro as many others seem to be. He looks like a solid shortstop in real life but 7hr/14sb with a great avg dont really excite me. Where does everyone think he is drafted next year? What would a career year from him look like? 15/25/.330?

He's actually worse in real life. Below average glove and never takes a walk.
