I like this deal a lot. It is a great example of a low-risk, high-reward deal. Castellanos is hitting well, but Hammons Field (AA park in Springfield) is a great hitter's park with a 315 ft LF wall. Furcal, on the other hand, has struggled primarily because of injuries. In the past 10 days he has started playing much better, hitting above .300 (.303 maybe). If this is a sign that he is back to old form, we got him for a steal. If it isn't, we only have him for 2 months (so we aren't burdened by a major contract) and gave up a middle of the road prospect.
