Have you ever wished that there were a double of your favorite player on the field? Have you ever uttered the phrase, “if only so-and-so could play second and shortstop”? For example, wouldn’t it be nice if Starlin Castro could play shortstop and third base? It would be nice if we had two Starlin Castro’s so that we wouldn’t have to see Mike Olt’s batting average continue to free-fall (he’s at .142 right now, by the way). But would a team of Castro’s really be better?
Presenting the all-time, all-Castro starting lineup.
C – Jason Castro (HOU), 2013 all-star (hit .276 with 18 HR)
1st – Ramon Castro, hit .237 in 13 seasons with FLA, NYM & CHW
2nd – Juan Castro, hit .229 in 17 seasons with LAD, CIN, MIN, BAL & PHI
SS – Starlin Castro (CHC), 2-time all-star, .283 career average
3rd – Domingo Castro, hit .281 with 474 home runs in 16 seasons in the Mexican League
LF – Harold Castro (DET), hitting .370 for the Lakeland Flying Tigers (A+)
CF – Lou Castro, hit .245 in 1 season with the Philadelphia Athletics
RF – Leandro Castro (PHI) hit .270 with 123 steals in 8 seasons in MiLB (AAA)
On second though maybe a team of Castro’s wouldn’t be the best. I wonder if a team of Rizzo’s would be any better…
