The letter from Tetelo Vargas for Luis Castillo

The letter from Tetelo Vargas for Luis Castillo

Coral Gables, Fla. (VIP-WIRE). My dear compatriot…: I already know, because in this Hereafter, which you call Beyond, we know everything, that you do not know who I was. Well, I played professional baseball in six places: the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Cuba, Venezuela and the United States.

They knew me especially because I ran so well that they even called me El Gamo. But I was also a good hitter, I set the record for average in a season in the Negro Leagues, 471, in 1942, with the New York Cubans. Since they have now put everything together, I have the world record.

But the most important thing right now is you, especially because of that trade that has taken you from the Cardinals to the Mariners. Of course, with Seattle you have a better chance of making the postseason than in a Cardenal uniform.

And the Mariners gave you three of their most valuable prospects, shortstops Noelvi Marte and Edwin Arroyo, plus right-hander Levi Stoudt. It is logical that they think you are decisive to embrace the October ball. At 29, you’re in your sixth major league season, going 44-53, 3.62, but this year, in 14 appearances, you’ve got a 2.86 ERA and four wins versus four losses. Mariner scouts who followed you reported that with their offense you can win more often. And they comment that they like your attitude towards hitters and your command of the corners.

In your native Baní they’re going to have a huge party if you make it to the World Series, and the Mariners, who haven’t been to the postseason since 2001, have made a number of big moves besides yours, so I think they do. they will achieve this year. My advice is that in the rest of the regular season, you focus on throwing strikes on the corners of the plate that the reports advise. Do not give importance to the fame of the batted in turn. The advantage is yours. If he misses seven out of 10 attempts, he’s a great hitter. But you can make it fail up to 10 out of 10. You have what it takes and you’ve shown it.

Some misinformed people proclaim that “the pitcher’s best friend is the double play”, such a mistake, my dear Luis, because the pitcher’s best friend is his control. If you throw the ball where it should be, no one will hit you comfortably. So I hope to see you in the World Series and win it for the great team in Seattle, for your beloved Baní and for our Dominican Republic. We will celebrate by dancing more than one well dressed merengue, each one with a black retrechera and a good looking girl.

Good luck, Luis, and more than a thousand hugs… Tetelo.

Thanks to life that has given me so much, even a reader like you.
