Scorekeeping: Jon Heyman’s Eternal Hatred for Latinos

Not really.

A friend pointed me to this blog and I gotta say, I’m a little jealous.

While it ranges for all sports, there was a tidy little article on Jon Heyman and his dislike for Luis Castillo/love for David Eckstein.

Eckstein is 36 years old. He has posted a career .280/.345/.355 batting line with an 87 OPS+ and 21.4 WAR.

Castillo is 35 years old. He has posted a career .290/.368/.351 batting line with a 92 OPS+ and 24.5 WAR.

Heyman has been effusive in his praise of Eckstein:

A two-time World Series champ, this all-time scrapper is a big plus for any clubhouse.

And on Twitter:

#phillies should sign david eckstein, who’s hoping for a 2b job, as insurance since utleys still hurting. #mysteryailment

He even went so far as to argue that the Mets should replace Castillo with Eckstein:

#mets should release castillo, bring in eckstein and immediately boost their attitude/karma

Meanwhile, he has bashed Castillo relentlessly for the past few months:

i am sick of luis castillo already this spring, and im not even in port st lucie anymore (and neither is he there, by the way)
