I know he's probably a better player and a more proven commodity, but damn - that's a HUGE gamble.
I don't think I'd do it. Tulo has 2 or 3 'prime' seasons left, then another 4 decline years. He also has home/road splits that you really shouldn't ignore. Granted, on the road he's still quite good, but he's not $20 mil/season worth of good. Additionally, with a handful of lower body injuries in his career, he may well have to switch to 3b for the latter half of that deal.
Nah, I'd rather have Castro, his contract and his pricetag.
