  • Mets agree to $800,000 deal with Castro

    January 10, 2006

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Backup catcher Ramon Castro and the New York Mets agreed Tuesday to an $800,000, one-year contract.

    He hit .244 in 99 games last season with eight homers and 41 RBIs, getting more playing time than anticipated because Mike Piazza got hurt. Piazza became a free agent, and the Mets acquired Paul Lo Duca from Florida.

    Castro also has the chance to earn $50,000 bonuses for 60, 70 and 80 games played.

    Infielder Chris Woodward and pitcher Victor Zambrano are the only Mets remaining eligible for arbitration.

    Good, I like Castro. He was a very clutch replacement last year for Piazza. Hopefully he continues to do well next season.

            Agreed.. He did a good job as a back-up..

              Well seeing that Castro resigned, he will back up Paul Lo Duca...

                The 'emergency' catcher is the guy that comes in after the backup guy goes down.

                Honestly, I don't know who that'd be at this point. I was only sorta kidding about Julio.

                  Hopefully not Mike DeFelice, that guy blew last year!
