Ramble On Sports

Where sports, pop culture and everything else collide.

Luis Castillo drops the ball again

Posted by bdowd625 on September 9, 2010

We here at Ramble On are in touch with our sensitive side – that’s right, ladies – so when we read Luis Castillo’s comments about why he chose not to join his teammates on a recent visit to Walter Reed Army Medical Center, it made our blood boil a little bit. Here’s the quote from Castillo:

“Sometimes when you see people with no legs and no arms, when they go to fight for us and they’re in the hospital like that, I don’t like to see that.”

You don’t like to see that? Are you kidding me? These are people who sacrifice life and limb so that you can consistently hit .230 for the Mets and drop pop-ups that cost your team the game, you slapdick. I can understand if Castillo gets a little squeamish around hospitals – that happens to the best of us sometimes. But to word your explanation that way is pretty damn insulting. Show up with the rest of your teammates and brighten someone’s day and then you can get on with your miserable existence.

Apparently Carlos Beltran and Oliver Perez didn’t make the trip either, but I don’t feel like wasting my breath on those two dead spots on the Mets’ roster.
