Quote :

Once among the brightest of several young Mexican stars, Nery Castillo has fallen out of favor with both Mexico and Chicago, which signed him last year as a Designated Player. FC Dallas has since put its faith, and its money, in Fabian Castillo as a DP, and this week the Fire declined an option on its Castillo.

He fell from grace so fast and so far, it’s hard to comprehend the heights many had predicted for Mexican attacker Nery Castillo just a few years ago, and comparing his arc to that of recent FC Dallas signing Fabian Castillo demonstrates fully the folly of signing the wrong player at the wrong price at the wrong time.

Nery Castillo leaves the league as one of the league’s all-time DP busts. MLS loaned him to Greek club Aris in January on a five-month deal with an option to take him back, which the Fire will not do. In eight MLS games, he registered zero goals and zero assists and seldom looked the same player who lit up the Americas four years ago.

Contrast his tale to that of Fabian Castillo, an 18-year-old Colombian striker signed from Deportivo Cali in March. The flow of successful Colombian players to MLS, which had nearly dried up five or six years ago, has been restored since the arrival of Juan Toja in Dallas, which sold him to Romanian club FC Steaua Bucharest three years ago after he scored eight goals in 43 matches and made the All-Star team in 2007 and 2008.

In the cockeyed financial muddle that is MLS, Castillo’s compensation is listed at $42,000, so he’s not only the youngest (18) Designated Player in league history, he’s also the lowest paid, at least on paper in 2011. Since league rules mandate that if a player’s total acquisition costs, including salary and transfer fees, exceed $500,000 per season, it can be assumed his salary will skyrocket in the future, and/or the league paid a hefty sum – one source said it was “about” $750,000 – to get him. That’s more than the annual compensation paid to David Ferreira, who after winning the 2010 MVP award was “upgraded” to DP status and is due $705,000 this year.

In nine MLS games, Fabian Castillo has scored twice, and knifed open opposing defenses numerous times. He seems poised enough to adapt on and off the field. Despite being five years younger when he came to MLS, Fabian Castillo carries none of the personality flaws that plagued Nery Castillo after his arrival.

According to FCDallasBeatGuy on twitter it's Castillo. But it seems sudden since he was practicing with the team on Monday.

Well we expected it, we just didn't expect Ferreira to be out. I fully expect FCD to souldier on regardless of who is playing up top. Jackson was surprisingly good last night in USOC match!

He will be well-rested when he comes back. Considering FCD will be playing essentially two games a week for the next two months, that's not a bad thing at all.

I actually submitted a question similar to this when they were doing the podcast(or whatever it was) before the game against TorontoFC(I think). They were asking for questions to ask somebody from FCD(for the life of me I cant remember who) so I submitted,

In a footrace, who would win between The Flash and Fabian Castillo? Very Happy

Ha!!! I remember that. I think I asked a question but it was not chosen. I would answer Castillo because of the Mohawk and no tights.
Bobby Rhine and Melanie Jarrett did the podcast. Sad
