Keeping Castillo

Listen to me tonight from 6-8pm on Live From Mickey Mantle’s and I’ll explain why the Mets should hold on to Aaron Heilman and Luis Castillo through the winter.

Also you’ll hear the inspirational stories of former Yankee and 9/11 firefighter Frank Tepedino and teacher Billy Staples, who has done amazing work in turning around the lives of inner city kids through baseball.

Joe Janish began MetsToday in 2005 to provide the unique perspective of a high-level player and coach -- he earned NCAA D-1 All-American honors as a catcher and coached several players who went on to play pro ball. As a result his posts often include mechanical evaluations, scout-like analysis, and opinions that go beyond the numbers.
