The Astros might cut Quintero to sign Pudge

Oh Jon Heyman, how you titillate us. Heyman tweeted:

Heard houston might not keep quintero. #pudge a possibility.

Well, wouldn't that be interesting, and I have no idea what to make of this. We're talking about backup catchers here, right? Because at some point Castro will be healthy (ideally). But Quintero and the Astros avoided arbitration with a $1m+ deal, which isn't necessarily guaranteed. Will Pudge sign for that amount? Will he be better at nurturing young Jason Castro? Does it even matter, at all?

I just don't see this happening. Pudge is what...60 years old? I think Heyman is full of it. As for Castro getting healthy, let's keep our fingers crossed.

I couldn't care less who the backup is... as long as I never have to see Corporan again. Eww.

This makes no sense. Q is every bit as good as Pudge at this point in time, and presumably cheaper.
