There seems to be some sentiment(not worth much to me) and quite a bit of data to suggest that while Castro may be "slick fielding", he is not a good defensive SS due to a lack of range at the position.
The question is if Castro is put at SS and $5M saved on Gonzo would that money be put to better use elsewhere? The one difference in Gonzo vs Castro is that Gonzo is younger and has decidedly more pop.
