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
