Last year when Castilla signed his $6.2 million 2-year deal - I said he'd be a stiff and that Jim Bowden was a fool for signing for him. Now Kevin Towers proves to be a fool for trading for him. Hopefully moving Lawrence opens a spot for David Wells. I'd love for the Red Sox to trade Wells to the Padres for Xavier Nady.

- Lee Corso is a penis!
