Castro is Ready

It’s been a few days since my last post and sure enough, there’s been quite a bit of news and happenings.

Randy Wells is the fourth starter, Johnson’s made the Opening Day roster, Castro is ready and so is Robert Redford.

First of all, let’s talk about Starlin Castro.  Sophomore Jinx and Starlin Castro probably won’t be in the same sentence.  Although, I’m jinxing it by saying it.  He’s had an outstanding preseason.  Yeah, he’s made some errors but he’s batting .351 this spring so yeah, he’s ready to go!

Yesterday he had a great game against the Mariners, hitting a three run double.

It’s a “Natural” to have Robert Redford throw out the opening pitch seeing he knocked out the Wrigley scoreboard.

I’m glad Randy Wells made the line up.  He’s pitched hard. 

Hey, what about Reed Johnson?  Arguably the best pick up the Cubs made in the off season, now before everyone says,”What?” Matt Garza and Carlos Pena excluded.

Reed Johnson is the best bang for your buck player in baseball.  I’m not making any bold predictions, but Starlin Castro and Reed Johnson are going to be two reasons why the Cubs will be in the post season this year.

now you can say,”What?”
