Starl-in the Making

There have been a few eye opening performances tonight, but I wanted to stop by and make a quick post about Starlin Castro.  Cubs fans have been hanging their hat on the uber-young shortstop for some time now, and we’re finally getting a peak at him tonight.  He went yard with a 3-run bomb in his first major league at bat and picked up 3 RBI with a bases loaded triple in his second.

The (alleged) 20-year old Domincan is known for his speed and defense, fitting the Elvis Andrus/Alcides Escobar mold, but has decided to show off his slugging abilities tonight.  Be sure to keep an eye on the youngster as the season goes on.
