Chicago Cubs: Goodbye letter to Starlin Castro

Starlin,   First of all, thank you. You gave all you had to this franchise. You were proud to be a Chicago Cub when it seemed like nobody else in the world was.

Trade Breakdown: Starlin Castro To The Yankees

Starlin Castro has been on my personal radar since November of last year.  At that time I thought of him as a possible heir to The Captain, but since the Cubs moved him over to 2B this past season, I have worn my heart on my sleeve for Rob Refsnyder.Of course, I need to stop doing that, because Refsnyder's bags are all but packed right now, and Castro will form what will likely...

This is horrifying, and something you would never expect or hope to happen. During Monday night’s Cubs-Pirates game, a fan behind home plate was struck with a foul ball hit by Starlin Castro through the netting.
