Jason Castro is out for the year with an ACL tear. Normally I would take every chance to bag on the Stros, but this is an awful injury, especially for a 23 year old catcher. As a baseball fan, I was looking forward to seeing him get the chance to play full time this year.
That being said, is there any chance that Doumit gets sent to the Astros? They need a catcher, we seem to be showcasing him at catcher this spring, and it would certainly clarify our bench situation. The only questions are:
1. Would we have to eat all of Doumit's salary?
2. Who would we ask for in return?
3. Would we trade him to a division rival, along with scouting reports on our pitchers?
What do you folks think?
