What do you think about the Castro rumors?
Mack - I was impressed with SS Wilmer Flores' fielding so far this week, but now he seems lost with a bat in his hand.
This started in the last two weeks of spring training and he seems to have lost confidence while standing in the box. He also swung at anything thrown his way.
Let's face it... the 2016 Mets shortstop may not be in this organization right now and Castro (along with Tulo) would be a prime candidate to keep an eye on.
My guess is that Addison Russell will be the Cubs 2016 shortstop, leaving Castro and his remaining contract (through 2019) exposed for a trade. The Mets have the prospect depth in their organization to pull a deal off here though they would probably have to pay 100% of his existing contract.
We'll keep an eye on Castro throughout the season.
