Marlins Have Had Internal Discussions About Luis Castillo

  JUPITER -- The Marlins have spoken internally about reacquiring second baseman Luis Castillo, who was released on Friday by the New York Mets.

  Castillo, who has one year remaining on his contract, is owed $6 million, which the Mets will absorb.

   The 35-year-old second baseman played 10 seasons with the Marlins from 1996-2005 and won three Gold Gloves and two World Series rings with the team.

   The Marlins have discussed Castillo as a low-cost option at second base if Matt Dominguez doesn't make the club and Omar Infante is moved to third.

I hope the Marlins sign him. He'd be a good reserve second baseman/pinch hitter and possibly a starter if he plays well. He's also a fan favorite.

BIG LOS

Luis Castillo was awesome in his Fish days, but why on earth would they play him at second over Emilio Bonifacio,nd shirt Emilio to bench or OF when Matt is ready. I would start Emilio and 2B and Omar at 3B

Something happened in my last post.

1.) Luis Castillo was awesome in his Fish days. THE hitting streak, the stolen base crowns.

2.) However, i would start Emilio Bonifacio at 2B over Luis at this stage of Luis' career.

3.) Me as GM, on opening day, Emilio at 2B, Omar at 3B, Matt ready to come up the show in a couple months.

4.) Castillo as a backup, maybe, though the Phillies are the ones who should gobble him up. It seems like a perfect match.
