Division of Labor

Assuming Luis Castillo starts at second tonight, he becomes the Met with the most starts at second this season. Going into tonight's game, starts at second base for the Mets have broken down as follows:
Castillo 44 starts
Valentin 44 starts
Easley 36 starts
Gotay 33 starts
Newhan 1 start

In the past 50 years, I've found only two other teams with 4 guys who each started at least 30 games at second: the 1997 Yankees (Pat Kelly, Luis Sojo, Mariano Duncan and Rey Sanchez) and the 1966 White Sox (Al Weis, Wayne Causey, Jerry Adair and Don Buford).
