Burkhardt: If Opening Day Was Tomorrow, Castillo Would Be Starter

Would this send you in a tizzy if it really happened?

I don’t know how close this is to actually being a reality, but it would shock me if it happened.

The word on Brad Emaus when we drafted him was that he was a poor defensive second baseman, and nobody has said one glowing remark about the Daniel Murphy experiment at second.

My choice has been Murphy all along, but I never imagined a scenario with Luis Castillo winning the job. No way – the though has never crossed my mind.

Even Ruben Tejada, who drove in a couple of runs today, would be better than bringing back Castillo in my opinion.
