So the Mets and Red Sox have discussed trading Luis Castillo for Mike Lowell.

Here are some other things the teams have probably discussed: the Tooth Fairy, Existentialism, and the 1986 World Series. That doesn't mean Calvin Schiraldi is wondering what meaning his life has while getting a root canal.

Besides, it seems too easy. Why would the Red Sox give the Mets a righty power bat, an expiring contract, and a hole at second base to be filled by Brandon Phillips for a guy who will be paid six million bucks to sit behind Marco Scutaro and Dustin Pedroia? Seems that's not the kind of business that the Red Sox are usually in.

Seriously, how do you go from Max Ramirez to Luis Castillo? Did one physical make that much of a difference?

More importantly how has Omar not jumped on Max Ramirez?

Kid has masher power.

I know our motivation for wanting to rid METropolis of Luis Castillo. But what's Theo thinking?...and what's that nonsense I hear coming out of beanTown about Pedroia wanting to move to shortstop? We/NYM NeeD a Pitcher to ShotGun Johan. Nothing else matters to me right now. What say your clairvoyance?
