Mets Top Priority Is To Trade Luis Castillo

According to the New York Time’s Jack Curry via his Twitter,

The Mets hope the first thing they accomplish in Indy is unloading Luis Castillo so they can sign Orlando Hudson to play 2B.

Castillo, who just came off a solid season in which he batted .302 and posted a solid .387 OBP is officially on the outs. By this time next week he’ll be just a distant memory.

After all the hoopla regarding the Polanco deal, let’s see how Omar handles the Orlando Hudson situation.

There are already two other teams interested in Orlando Hudson, so it’s going be fun seeing how this develops.

The other thing to note is that if the Mets have to eat some salary to move Castillo, lets say $6 million dollars, remember to add that cost to whatever it takes to sign his replacement.

Then you can compare it to what the Phillies paid Placido Polanco.. After all, what’s fair is fair.

I’m thinking that this is just a prelude to another Mets debacle.
