Castillo irks another manager

3/22/2011

Phillies manager Charlie Manuel apparently wasn't too pleased with having to scratch Luis Castillo from Tuesday's lineup over a miscommunication over the second baseman's ETA.

Asked if he would have been in camp earlier, Manuel is quoted by ESPN's Jayson Stark: "If it was me? I'd have been here two days ago. But it's not me."

Castillo did arrive a day early for Mets position-player reporting, but that did not sit well with Terry Collins, either. Collins thought Castillo should have been there earlier, like other position players, if he really wanted to demonstrate he wanted to earn the second-base job.
