STARLIN CASTRO RUMORS

Once beaten down by years of losing, Cubs' Castro is a star reborn

The Chicago Cubs’ two new veteran catchers, Miguel Montero and David Ross, weren’t impressed by shortstop Starlin Castro in spring training. Montero says Castro was, “a little bit too cool for school.” Ross says he actually was worried, wondering if Castro lacked fire. Neither catcher is worried now. Nor is any other Cubs player, coach or team executive. While the Cubs...

Its Time To Move On From Starlin Castro

WHAT!? Was the response I got when I suggested this just a few short weeks ago, and possibly rightfully so. The Cubs were rolling and Starlin Castro was a huge reason for that. He was hitting well above .300 most of which was very timely hitting. As a veteran he was leading the team, helping everyone remain loose, and most importantly he was playing exceptional defense. That was...

WATCH: Starlin Castro Perfectly Mimics Kris Bryant Fielding a Hit and Throwing the Ball to First

The Chicago Cubs are not having the best of seasons (shocker), but that doesn't mean the guys can't have a little fun. After all, they are playing a game, right? For some odd reason Starlin Castro decided to mimic Kris Bryant fielding a ground ball hit by Mark Reynolds and the subsequent throw to first.It was a little confusing to Anthony Rizzo, but he caught the right ball and got...

WATCH: Fan at Pirates game hit by foul ball through netting

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. The netting didn’t snap, but the fan was standing close enough to the netting where it gave enough to still hit her in the head. HOLY JESUS! This just happened...

The Case for Keeping Starlin Castro

Wrigleyville, BP’s local website for the Chicago Cubs, provides a wealth of information on our favorite team. Many of the best writers around the beat provide articles for them; Sahadev Sharma, Brett Taylor, and Matthew Trueblood among them (when Bleacher Nation was hiring a nights writer, I actually e-mailed Brett saying ‘if Matt Trueblood applies, you’d be a fool not to hire...

Starlin Castro questioned following nightclub shooting

It seems like just yesterday that Starlin Castro was questioned (or not) after a nightclub shooting in his native Dominican Republic and deemed to be, simply, “in the wrong place at the wrong time”. Now, the Chicago Cubs All-Star is being questioned in connection with another nightclub shooting. Ok, again. #Cubs Starlin Castro was detained by the authorities for questioning...

Chicago Cubs trade rumors: Starlin Castro edition

One of the best young shortstops in the game of baseball today and a cornerstone of the franchise. The owner of 794 career hits at the age of 24 and a career .282 hitter. A soon to be three time All-Star after being selected to the mid-summer classic by the coaches earlier this week. Yet after the acquisition of top shortstop prospect Addison Russell, he may be the player that...

Chicago Cubs: The unthinkable option would be the wrong one

The Wrigley Field rooftop owners want the view, the Chicago Cubs want the renovations. The Cubs have had discussions with the city about adding a 650-square-foot Wrigley Field sign  that could potentially block the view from the rooftops. As a kid, there was that word your parents told you not to say. And if you said it, you’d have to put a quarter in the jar. Well, the organization...
