Original Post, 5:13 pm:
Adam Rubin of the Daily News believes the Mets are trying to trade C Ramon Castro before Saturday’s game.
Rubin reports Brian Schneider will be activated tomorrow.
Rubin also provides information on where Castro might be traded, and how the Mets plan to manage the roster if he’s unable to moved.
…uh oh, roster squeeze with omar at the wheel, look out…
…there is no way this team can justify carrying three catchers, especially with how often they tend to play short-handed…
…hopefully, they find a taker for castro, whose removal from the clubhouse could be a good thing, frankly… if not, i realize castro is probably due around $2 million more this season, but they have to consider releasing him… i know they will not, but they should…
The 28–year-old Santos is batting .268 with two HR and 15 RBI.
Meanwhile, Castro, who missed several games each of the last two seasons with injuries, is batting .253 with three HR and 13 RBI.
