Great Moments in Chutzpah: Heyman on Luis Castillo

9 Comments

Well, it’s either chutzpah or it’s deliciously but somewhat cruelly tongue-in-cheek.  Here’s Heyman on Twitter a few minutes ago, talking about Luis Castillo:

not sure castillo gets a job. backup 2b aren’t in demand, even for the minimum. bad pub doesn’t help either.

 

Gee, I wonder where that “bad pub” came from. If only someone had kept track of this stuff.  Oh yeah, we did.  Heyman’s recent Castillo tweets:

  • “among overpriced #mets on bubble, word is ollie perez will get more time to show he belongs than luis castillo. #choppingblock”
  • “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)”
  • “luis castillo showed only yest bec brother had surgery, he said. a hospital make good for blowing off walter reed? #excuses”

Yeah, it’s a shame about all that “bad pub.”  Mercy.

Blue Jays call up Cavan Biggio

Cavan Biggio, son of Hall of Famer Craig Biggio, has been called up by the Toronto Blue Jays.

Biggio, 24, was a fifth round selection in the 2016 draft. So far this year he has put up a .307/.445/.504 batting line with six home runs and five steals Triple-A Buffalo. He’s a utility guy of sorts, having spent time at first, second, third and all three outfield positions so far this year. He, perhaps ironically, has not caught yet in his pro career, nor does he play short. Still, that kind of flexibility in a young player can be pretty useful in this age of big bullpens. Especially if he continues to rake like he has. He’ll likely mostly play second base for the Jays starting out.

With Vlad Guerrero Jr. playing third base every day, Toronto now has two sons of Hall of Famers on their roster. That’s pretty neat.
