Yeah Luis Castillo is going to (by himself, in a stroner divsion) turn the the Twins into a 98 win team...

Do some of these guys even know what they are saying. Yeah he may help the Twins win a couple run one games, assuming he is the guy who is at bat in a critical situation(1/9 chance), he gets on base (35%), and someone behind him drives him in. But to say that he will help win half the one run games that you lost last season is absured.

That's the difference between a 75-win team and a 90-win playoff contender!), and then the writer comes in and says that, well, actually Luis is probably good for 2 or 3, tops.

That is classic. 15 games is Barry Bonds-ish.

Haha, I get the Times and the funny thing is in the article it mentions that Barry Bonds's highest career WARP is exactly 15.

Blind luck or intense skill? YOU make the call.

;-) I think we both know the answer to that DK.
