If you know me, I’ve been screaming for the Phillies to get Castellanos for years now. He plays multiple positions, both in which we need, and the Phillies line up desperately could use that right handed power bat of his. After a season of hitting .309/34/109 Dave Dombrowski MUST bring Castellanos here to Philly and it may already be in the works.

The fact that there is history between Dombrowski and Casteallos gives me some type of hope. The Phillies have roughly around $39 million to play with this off-season, so there’s no excuse not to get this deal done.
