Damn you, Brian McTaggart

Brian McTaggart totally swooped in and posted the first of a series we were hoping to post - a position-by-position look at the organization. Today's it's the Catcher.

What's Next:

The Astros are still committed to Castro. He's only 23 years old and there's no reason to believe he won't get better with age. But don't be surprised to the see the club perhaps bring in a low-cost veteran to take over behind the plate if Castro just isn't ready on Opening Day. Among the free agents who could fit that bill are Gregg Zaun, Matt Treanor and Josh Bard or similiar-type players in age, ability and salary. Unless the Astros don't tender him a contract, Quintero appears poised to return as the back up yet again.

It's just a snippet, and you should really click the link and read it for yourself. Basically, one of these days the Astros will have a catcher who can hit.
