Castillo was MIA...

Once the Mets knew they were out of contention, Louis Castillo was buried on the bench. In the month of Sept. he has appeared in seven games but the last time he started was on Sept. 4th.

His last four appearances have all been off the bench and Friday had to be an all-time low in his distinguished career.

For those who weren't listening this was all related during Sunday's game on the WFAN by Howie and Wayne.

During Friday night's game in the 9th inning the Mets were attempting a comeback against the Phillies. The Phillies thought they had won with a called strike three but the Mets had been granted a time out. Then there was a long delay before Louis Castillo came out as a pinch runner.

According to the announcers the delay was a result of Castillo not being on the bench, supposedly he was eventually found in the clubhouse.

Let me get this straight; against the teams biggest rival, down only by a run with two men on in the ninth, Louis Castillo is already in the clubhouse.

The Mets and Castillo have already made it clear that the two sides will be parting ways at the end of the year but Louie what about your teammates...
