Dodgers Fans React to Luis Castillo-to-LA Trade Rumors

Aside from a little Juan Soto drama, the MLB trade hot stove has been burning on low for most of the season. That all changed on Monday when’s Jon Morosi reported that the Reds and Dodgers have had “preliminary” discussions about a possible trade for starter Luis Castillo.

The Dodgers starting staff has been the best in baseball (2.72 ERA), but apparently the ghost of the NLCS 2021 is still roaming the halls of the Dodgers front office. The Braves were the better team in the end, but an exhausted Walker Buehler and Julio Urías, plus Max Scherzer’s business decision, doomed the Dodgers chances of winning back-to-back titles.

After the Castillo news broke, Dodgers fans were quick to chime in with their reactions to LA exploring the trade.


One fan pointed out that Castillo, who's already made one All-Star team in his career, could be even better with some coaching from the savvy Dodgers staff.


Another thinks the Dodgers should try to land an even bigger name.


Other cited team president Andrew Friedman's recent quotes about the team focusing on internal improvements instead of sending out prospects for another big name.



The Dodgers Nation YouTube community also weighed in on the prospect of LA trading for Castillo.

"We need to trade for Luis Castillo if any of our pitching gets injured he could help us pitch well in the NLDS or CS" - Dee Kirkham

"I disagree with trading for castillo. mitch white is looking good to hold a spot until dustin may comes back. we need bullpen help. not a starter. it will also be less expensive." - James Cosgrove

One fan tossed out a wild trade idea for Castillo.

"I would trade Bellinger Muncie Turner and pepiot to get Castillo. No way I’m letting go of Bobby Miller Italia bush but this is a guy we definitely need to get I mean look at his 99 100 he’s got a great change Yep I know you’ve been trying to get Castillo for a few year" - Katarina Neuhartk

  1. It’s not happening. The Mets will probably get him. Shane Bieber would be better IMO.
