Ramon Castro got to have his shot as a Mets hero on April 16, Pedro Martinez's first Shea Stadium start.

Since Mike Piazza had started the game the night before, everyone pretty much expected Castro would be starting the game, but Willie Randoph started Piazza anyway. Piazza had a tough time with Pedro Martinez's stuff... Pedro had three wild pitches, leading to two runs.

In the 8th inning, the Mets took the lead for the first time all day, so with the score Mets 3, Marlins 2, Randolph brought in Braden Looper to close the game and Castro came in for defense as part of a double switch.

Looper proceeded to blow the save, so going to the bottom of the ninth, the score wass tied 3-3. Marlins closer Guillermo Mota retired the first two Mets' batters, and it looked like the game was headed to extra innings. But then Victor Diaz doubled, and Castro came up.

I certainly expected him to end the inning by making an out, but he managed to get a hit to drive in Diaz and send me and the other 55,000+ fans at Shea home happy.

Ramon Castro is a solid back up catcher. I remember some very big hits he had last year to help the Mets win games. If there is anything that needs improvement, it's his base running skills. Overall a solid asset to the team.

I was at the Father's Day game and when he came up to bat and his picture came up on the big screen somebody behind me yelled out "Hey, it's Shrek." I wish I hadn't laughed.

This guy is one of the most awkward runners I've ever seen. I wonder who would win in a race: him or Mo Vaughn?

A solid defensive catcher. I have seen Ramon make many great plays defensively. Also a decent hitter.

Castro is currently on FIRE! It seems like every time I notice "Shrek" coming up to bat, something good happens. Makes me wonder if we need even need to look for an outside option to be our starting catcher should Lo Duca walk at the end of the year. He also makes me wonder if it's time MLB instituted a "Designated Runner" rule...

The man had the talent to be an everyday catcher. He preferred to be a back-up. I am not sure what to think about that, but okay.

After he left the Mets for the White Sox, he caught Mark Buehrle's 2009 perfect game.

That home run ratio -- especially in 2007 -- was no small potatoes. I'd like to see Ramon and Robinson Cancel in the same photo.
