The Mets are considering taking a guy who hit .158 last year and I actually like the idea.
He's Andruw Jones and he's only 32, which is toddler-age for a typical Omar pickup...plus the rumor has the Dodgers paying much of the money.
Sure he was awful last year but in 2007 he hit 26 HRs with 94 RBI and in 2006 he was 41 with 129.
Could he have gotten that bad that fast? Unless you think...um his er... workout strategy changed as many players routines seemed to change last year.
Part of the wild speculation is that maybe perhaps the Dodgers would take Castillo.
MLB.com is saying that the interest has cooled since the initial ESPN.com report but I say go for it.
