    Castro signs extension

    Castro back for two more years per 1530. Deal has option for 3rd year.

    I apologize if this was already reported and I missed it. I've been out all weekend.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Does not bother me unless JN decides to start him more than once every 2 weeks...or there is a real serious injury and he has to play long term.

    He is the guy who at the end of the year you want to see stats like .....80-90 games played.....and about the same....if not less...AB's.

    What the need to also have is a backup who can actually hit better.....and his defense is not atrocious. Someone like RA.

    Any financials released?

    You know this means Narron will be starting him pretty often. Ugh.

    I only heard it on the radio, and since I'm half working I didn't catch if financials were included or not.

    3 if you count the option. I hope it's not a player option.

    Sigh....I really don't like this move. Juan Castro is not the type of player you should "have" to sign to a LTC. He is the type of player that is available as a non-roster invitee during the spring or as a rule V draftee. While it won't hurt the Reds to have Juan Castro as a backup infielder for the next 2 years, it just seems like a very unnecessary move to me.

    Juan Castro is my least favorite Red ever. Never hated a player's game (or lack thereof) like I do his.

    What perplexes me is why give a 2 year deal to a guy that comprises only 2% of your teams at bats?

    Is he just a coach in training now?

    EE's teacher?

    Expensive coach, money and other aspects.

    I don't mind bringing him back for next year, but I agree that it's dumb to give him a 2 year deal. I mean, it's not like there's going to be a bidding war for his services. A smart GM doesn't give longterm deals to marginal bench players that are not in demand.

    Oh well, Marty will be happy to hear this.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Juan Castro is an utter waste of a roster space and a complete waste of cash. Why the Reds continue to waste resources on him I'll never know.

    Re: Castro signs extension

    Why do this??

    Juan must have a killer personality. I wouldn't have signed him to a one-year deal. Two years with an option for a third??? What a waste of time and money. :thumbdown

    Sorry, but I think Krivsky stinks.
    Stop! Heisey time!

    No problem at all with this as long as its not huge money. Definatly seems like a leader. No offense good defense so add in his leadership then hes a fine bench player. I take all this back if the money part isnt good.
