    Has been mention on the ST thread.

    But I hate it for the fact that the Mets should of signed a real LHR from the market instead of trading a solid pen arm.

    Joely did well for the Yanks but aside from that he has been pretty bad. He has some real good chase rates but he is not a true cross over lefty.

    As did I. With our bullpen pretty much all expiring next off-season I think the control played as big a factor as what arm he throws with.

    Castro has better stuff and still has upside

    Agreed. The three years vs one played major role

    Do they have control?

    He was FA. Guys that come over from Japan have clauses on them that allows them to be FA and not abide by the control teams usually have of guys.

    Man I don't get it. You have a thin BP already, why in the world do you trade an upside arm that has proven he can be an effective MLB relief pitcher vs. just signing a lefty.


    What an awful trade.

    The problem is who is out there? Tony Watson? I like Castro's arm but he's another Familia. A guy who throws hard but has little command. Rodriguez has pitched less innings but has better peripherals than Castro does.

    Trade is actually looking like a solid move now after a rough start by Rodriguez.

    Castro is about where he was last year but with Chasen kind of struggling, Rodriguez has gotten that most important role of being called in on big spots.
