Wilson Rips Castillo

I heard about this yesterday, but I'd been waiting until I could read a real report on it.

"I want whoever's going to make this a winning team," Wilson said. "Right now, Freddy is my second baseman, in my mind. He's the guy I can trust to go 100 percent and get the job done. Castillo's got to show me something. You're going to see it in spring training. If he's slimmed down and ready to work, he's going to have a good year. But, if it's the other way around, we're going to have some problems."

Wilson isn't fat, at least, but it's still pretty unbelievable that someone who hits as badly as he does could say something like this. I know if I were signed to a $20 million contract that I didn't deserve, I wouldn't be particularly self-righteous about other players' problems.
