castro overthrows batista
so my twins dipped their toes into the shallow end of the free agent pool, signing tony batista this week. it looks like an upgrade at third base, even if mr. batista only put up jacques jones-like numbers last year with the fukuoka softbank hawks.
still, i'm a little nervous about clubhouse chemistry, especially with late-inning defensive replacement juan castro on the roster. picture it: castro fields a one-hopper at short and overthrows batista trying for a force at third. batista flees to the dominican republic, castro nationalizes the metrodome, and the united states suspends trade with the mall of america. all this for a guy with a .298 lifetime on-base-percentage?
