Broadway comes to Queens

Mets GM Minaya made his second good move of the season: He traded Ramon Castro, who refused to do one of a catcher's basic responsibilities: block home plate. In return, the White Sox gave the Mets a pitcher, Lance Broadway. The Mets assigned him to Triple-A.

Though Broadway been on and off the White Sox roster since 2007, he's never pitched more than 16.1 innings for them in any season. Nor has he had much success in Triple-A with Charlotte. Over the past three seasons in the minors, his best ERA was 4.65. However, given that Broadway is only 25 (Castro is 33), the trade was worth it given Broadway's greater potential.
