I could've sworn I saw WMR wearing an orange #5 recently.
Back to the topic at hand... I'm on board with dumping Castro, ASAP, of course. Who will it be... Only Kriv knows... and he ain't saying.
When all is said and done more is said than done.
I don't see Castro being dumped until Gonzalez comes off the DL.
When Gonzalez comes off the DL, I wouldn't be surprised if Krivsky did the unthinkable and kept Castro on the roster.
When Castro leaves the roster (hopefully soon), just think of how the value of all Castro's memorabilia will skyrocket!
The list of guys who might be gone:
Freel and Valentin won't be cut; I just can't see it. Barring a trade, 2 of those 4 have to be moved to make room for Ross and Gonzalez.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
I wouldn't be surprised to see Ross moved. Catching is thin around baseball right now, and he might draw the most interest. Some team out there will see him as a more attractive alternative to their current backup and may even possibly see him as a starter.

I could see Hatte dealt at some point with Javy moving tothe LHPH role. Seattle looks like a team that could use Hatte as a potential replacement DH or a LH alternative to Richie Sexson.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
