Free Castro

Castro needs to play everyday.

He probably gets the chance in a the next week or so when Frazier is traded.

I love what I see, but his minor league numbers were not impressive. Especially his OBP. He isn't even on our top 30 prospect list. It definitely would be nice for him to step in and be a legit MLB second baseman. I guess people are looking at the power numbers and he had a good year so far at Altoona. Coming out of nowhere would be a nice gift for the franchise.

He’s on pace for about 200 home runs to end the season.

I believe 5 HR's as all of his hits so far is an MLB record. 8-) 8-)

The last Pirates to have a five consecutive hit streak be all homers was Willie Stargell. I still don't know if any MLB player has started a career with their first 5 hits as homers.

Dan is looking quite prophetic right about now.
