Castillo doesn't fit the 2-hole. At this point in his career his only positive quality is that he's still great at taking the BB. But he doesn't do anything else well, can't bat "situationally", and his wheels no longer compensate for his inadequacies. So I understand the idea of putting Castillo in a spot in the order that takes advantage of his strengths... But I'd rather see #9 or just swallow his contract and admit the mistake of the signing.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
