According to Rotoworld, Starlin Castro is the latest vestigial member of the Feesh to request a trade to….anywhere else. If you will recall, Castro, the ten million dollar man, came to the Feesh from the Borg as part of the Mariel Salary Doomph in return for the Iron Giant. Having traded Dee Gordon and his approximately identical salary to the Crew of the Minnow earlier in the orfseason for a packet of B-list prospects, the expectation was that even Michael Hill couldn’t be dumb enough to trade a gold glove caliber, .300-hitting, 50-plus base stealing star second baseman only to replace him with a lumbering ball sluice to the outfield like Castro. Castro prolly figgered the same thing.
So Castro joins the growing list of Feesh incarcerates who wish they were playing somewhere else, including J T Realmuto, Christian Yelich and Martin Prado. Prado, with his fat salary and three year contract, is most likely the current object of LoriaLight’s efforts to unload more luchre and maybe Starlin’s dream will come true once the franchise figures out how to disencumber itself of its biggest Mike Hill boondoggles like Prado and Wei-Yin Chen. Meanwhile, I wouldn’t be honest with you if I didn’t admit that watching the Feesh disorganization sometimes reminds me of the Trump white house crew.
