I've mentioned before that I don't begrudge the Braves going into the season with Uggla at second. You were basically praying for a dead cat season where he drew enough walks and smacked enough homers to hit something like, say, .220/.340/.430.
If loony financial structuring is forcing roster decisions things have really gotten out of hand.
06/08/08 [...] The Mets reserve catcher was removed from the starting lineup shortly after noon, shortly after he arrived at PETCO Park for the 4:05 p.m. ET game against the Padres. His late arrival was neither excused nor unnoticed.
Caught in the West Coast-East Coast time tunnel, Castro thought game time was 4:05 p.m. -- which it was on the East Coast, but 1:05 p.m. PT. The three-hour time difference got him, and his infraction embarrassed him.
"I was in the shower when [a hotel employee, contacted by the Mets] knocked on the door," he said. "It was 11:45. I was going to get here at 1."
Hilariously, Castro claimed he thought the game started at 4:05 p.m. local time because it said “4:05" on the Met-produced pocket schedule he carries with him.
he had the lasik surgery in the middle of last season right? Hmm. Did that every help him?
He's not worth a shot even at minimum wage, but I'm sure some team will give him a chance.
