A Dedication To Castro

Joe over at Yes Joe, It's Toasted, writes about Ramon Castro and his production as the back up catcher:

Seriously, is there a better backup catcher in the game? The guy sits on the bench for three innings, he's ice-cold (literally), and Paulie Lo gets dinged and Ramon gets the call.

So what does he do? How about 2-for-2, 2 RBIs and a walk for good measure. Oh yeah, and he catches 6 innings of shut-out baseball. So, today's post is dedicated to you, Ramon. Sure, you might be exposed if you played every day, and you might never get a whiff of a game in the playoffs, but who cares. You, sir, are the Willie Mays of back-up catchers. On behalf of Met fans everywhere, I salute thou.
