Timby, I'm not disagreeing with you but all I'll say is everything you said about Castro was said about Jose Reyes. While not comparing the two, all the same critiques were hurled at him.
The biggest knock on Reyes from what I remember is that he couldn't stay healthy. A tweaked hammy turned out to be a season long stint on the DL. When he was in the lineup, he usually was pretty good.

I'm jealous of you going to see a minor league ballgame. It's like the 2000 Mets reunion from the sounds of it. I live 20 minutes from a minor league park and haven't been to a game all year, I suck.
If you look at Jose Reyes Average and On Base the first few years, people would lament about him being a lead off batter. Look at the number of walks. In 2005 & 2006 he ONLY had 27 & 53. Thats 27 walks with him playing 161 games, almost 700 at bats. He batted .273 with an OBP of .300 and he also committed 18 errors. They would wonder about his base running and fielding mental errors, which he would happen often.
