Starlin Castro sat out for one game because of poor play from the night before. was it a disciplinary thing by Mike Quade or was it frustration? The thing is that Starlin Castro leads the League in hits and that’s a good thing. The performances by the Cubs younger players like Castro, Darwin Barney, the amazing Tony Campana and Tyler Colvin have been nothing short of outstanding this year.
It’s the play by the veterans that have been sub par(with the exception of Ramirez and Pena). So, I don’t know if benching Castro for the game was the right idea. He needs to play and even if it is lacklustre, he needs to be there, to get experience and to take his lumps like any seasoned veteran. That’s the facts. I’ve been watching the Cubs this year because of their young stars. Campana’s amazing speed(He’s probably the fastest player in the majors) is exciting and Barney’s incredible intuition for the play and he’s without a doubt, one of the best all around players in the game. Not flashy, but a gamebreaker. I wouldn’t compare him to Reed Johnson, but maybe, ok, Darwin is a smart player. Tyler Colvin has gone out and put to work his practice in triple A. perhaps he’s a clutch player and he’s done the job he’s supposed to do. Starlin Castro? Future Hall of Famer.
Good years ahead
