Typical Minaya, "Murphy isn't being groomed to play second base."
What does it take to get Minaya to realize that Castillo isn't the answer.
Memo to Murphy: change your name to Martinez.

Why don't they just let this kid play everyday. Put him out in left field and let him get 500 at bats. Sit him against the tough lefties to get Tatis some games. I don't know what the big fear is. Their lineup certainly wasn't the problem last year and all the kid did was produce and he was tearing up the winter league. Especially if they address 2nd base (Hudson). While no gold glover, he wasn't Todd Hundley either. He's the kind of kid who will work on his d and be adequate. As Ron Darling said during the season, he's got that "IT" factor you either have or don't.

Omar, Dump Castillo and sign Hudson before its too late ? Too many are tracking this guy ,he can hit and would be a great number 2 behind Reyes. Trade Hielman to L.A. for Andruw Jones even up as long as L.A. pays part of his salary . This guy would be a great left fielder that can cover as much ground as Beltran. His bat was quite in 08 but he'll straighten out .L.A. has too many outfielders under contract so they might just take the offer plus he's right handed.
