Top 10 Reasons Luis Castillo Asked For a Few More Days on the DL
Passing on activation

Item: Luis Castillo reportedly doesn't feel right about starting for the Mets, asks for a few extra days. What are his possible reasons?

10. still raising cash to buy a pair of old Shea Stadium seats.

9. it's just common courtesy to let the current second baseman's hair coloring job fade before taking his job

8. still owes Lance Berkman money.

7. his joining the club could jeopardize team's qualification for federally-funded "Reyes Employment" program.

6. under the contract Omar signed him to, a couple of days = $34,246 muthaf**kers!!

5. will be assisting on El Duque's surgery

4. no pressing need for his "Brian Schneider-like" power

3. trying to figure out why Omar insisted on calling him a cab from hotel to Shea.

2. wants to rest up, maintain .316 September batting average from last year's collapse during this year's collapse.

1. Just can't bear to watch Aaron Heilman come in and blow another game.

    thanks Jaap.

    I wonder how pronounced the Luis Limp will be upon his return from 100 yrs of relaxing and reconditioning? Methinks he stuffs his shoes with contract money.

    What about, he was in Beijing watching the games and missed his connecting flight.
