Gotta do it for the 3B/OF Castellanos

OK, but then who is your closer in the meantime? Diekman? Stutes (who is now on the DL)? Aumont? None of these guys have shown much of anything. if you had someone who could step in immediately and replace Papelbon, I'd say, "Adios". But since you dont', I think you need to tread REALLY carefully here! Just my humble opinion :)


youre missing the point Laurie. It doesnt matter who closes for the rest of the year or even until they are able to compete again. Then when youre ready you can just sign another FA big name closer like everyone else does...or maybe one of these lehigh guys can eventually turn into one for you..until then, it means zero.


Would be a bad trade for Detroit. Way to expensive for a relief pitcher. Rondon is excelling in AAA right now and should be tried again before trading anyone. There is always someone available at the trade deadline anyway.

Castellanos is too much for Papelbon. The most I would trade for him is Andy Dirks and Garcia. I may add a minor league catcher, but no more than that.
