Jose Castillo

Today's Q&A got me thinking about one subject, Jose Castillo. I'm really sick of watching him mope around the field and screw things up for everyone. It's not his lack of hitting, it's the general "Aramis Ramirez in 2002" malaise that surrounds everything he does. Case in point, the throw he dropped on what should've been the game ending double play. It seems like he makes a mental error like that every night (though they aren't always that obvious). I've never been quite as taken with his defense as a lot of other people are, but it seems like he's getting to even fewer balls this year than he has in the past. I don't know if he's still hurt or what, but someone's gotta do something with him to get him to snap out of it, because he's getting hard to watch.
