Luis Castillo Needs More Rest?

Multiple media sources are reporting that Luis Castillo told the press after last night’s game that he needs more rest. The good news is that Damion Easley and Marlon Anderson are capable back up’s at second base. The bad news is that we have to watch Luis Castillo with the Mets for the next four years. His contract will probably be one of the worst in Mets history. There couldn’t have been any other teams offering anything close to that.


“Sometimes, I do [need a rest],” Castillo said. “When I play three or four games in a row, maybe I can get a day off. I’m going to ask Willie [Randolph] about it.”

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
