Met's fill second base void with Twin's Castillo
The New York Mets have acquired the speedy veteran Luis Castillo today from the Twins for minor league prospects Drew Butera and Dustin Martin. The three-time gold glover and two time NL leading base stealer will be a great addition to the Mets already stellar infield. Castillo will give the Mets more speed at the top of the order, as he will sit in the top 2 along with Jose Reyes.
As a Mets fan, I think this was a great acquisition. With Jose Valentin injured, the Mets acquire what is in my mind, a great 3-tool player for two sub-par minor league players. He runs, he hits, and he fields spectacular, so this was definitely a great pick up. Minaya strikes again.
