Imagining if Luis Castillo had been a full-time right-handed batter

Luis Castillo is one of the most accomplished players in Marlins history. He spent nearly a decade as their starting second baseman, setting franchise records for career games, hits, walks and stolen bases. Fifteen years after being traded away, he remains atop each of those categories. No surprise, he was included in the inaugural Fish Stripes Marlins Hall of Fame class.

The three-time NL All-Star was clearly a South Florida success story, but was he really the best version of himself?

For generations, switch-hitters have been glorified by the baseball community.
