Does anyone think he'll reach 25-30 SBs and bat .300 again? I currently have the O-Dawg as my starting 2b for next season in a 12-team keeper league so I need some improvement. Can Castillo begin to show off his speed again or will '05 be another disappointing year?

I dont like Castillo that much, 2b is shallow but last year he slipped. I'd pass unless you can get really good value on him.

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

Well the trade on the table is Carl Crawford for Vernon Wells and Castillo. I don't mind losing Craw's steals, because I'll still have Gathright, Abreu, A. Everett, Crisp, and then Castillo if I do the deal. I'm just wondering how much of an upgrade over Hudson Castillo would be.

Okay I guess you don't trust my opinion on the trade enough... What I told you is that you should do it since Vernon and Crawford have around the same value and Castillo isn't that good but better than what you have.

Take offense much, Spam? :-o

I plan on doing the trade, was just looking for some other opinions.

I say 20 SBs MAX!

IF he was hitting leadoff, and Juan P wasnt around I would bump that up to like 30, but the just dont like to let Castillo run anymore.
Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

I thought I had given you my opinion on that one already baseballer. Or maybe that was another one. Nonetheless I like the deal for you, it's about even, so do it if you think it's right.
