Castillo trade

The Twins traded second baseman Luis Castillo to the New York Mets two hours before the game tonight. Reportedly, the Twins players are angry at the trade. I suspect Torii Hunter will be amongst the first to whine. I think the team could afford to play with a little anger. Torii has been playing half asleep lately. Trades like this can do a team good. Team chemistry is a strange thing. Sometimes you can add by subtracting.
