Reds -

Juan Castro (torn ulnar collateral ligament, right elbow) on Tuesday will have season-ending "Tommy John" surgery.

Will the rehab last through September 2008?

You can't rush something like that. Look at Guardado. It's been a year and he's still on a rehab assignment. Juan definitely needs to take it easy with this and not try to come back too soon.

Castro's skill set is irreplaceable. Where will the Reds find another like him?

I'm sure he'll be healthy enough to bat 8th next opening day

Juan...do not rush back. With your age, you need to take this very very very very very very slowly.

If I was Juan Castro with the service time I'm entitled to, I say Hasta La Vista and head home.

8th? His contact ability is way too valuable to hit anywhere but 2nd.

Indeed, hope Hopper is leading off, that is one top of the order

It's not quite Deion and Curtis Goodwin but it's pretty close.

No way. Hopper is too good to start. He needs to come off the bench as Dunn's personal defensive replacement.

Freel needs to lead off.

1. Freel
2. Castro
3. Dunn
4. Conine

Btw, I'll set Dunn's RBI total over/under at 70. And that's if he's good for 40-45 HR's.

Conine? I was sort of hoping Wayne would get Olmedo Saenz to play 1B next year.

I'm blaming you now for the idea leaking out. The rest of us had kept quite, but noooooo, you had to go and speak it.

Why not pick up Julio Franco to lead off. THe Braves just DFA's him yesterday. He will still be under 50 next year....:ughmamoru

Did they? Maybe he'll take the hint that it's time to call it a career.

Hey, Olmedo Saenz is just like Jeff Conine, except that he's 6 years younger (allegedly) and Mexican.

There's savings here, people!

I'm so glad Wayne locked him up for next year too. Great work locking up all the marginal/replacable types Wayne!

Royce Clayton has been DFA'd by Toronto, he would fill in nicely.

I think now is the perfect time for the Reds to offer Juan Castro a job for next season as a minor league infield instructor. All the announcers rave about his skill and what a great guy he is , seems he'd be perfect for the job. Plus I'm guessing Juan is bilingual which can come in very handy working with young hispanic players.

Everyone says he's a class guy , thats the kind you want in the orginization .

I have advocated this for some time. I think Castro would be a great coach in the organization.
