Bitter sweet arrival for Starlin.
On one hand, he’s just what the Cubs need–a new spark to energize the club. On the other, it screams desperation.
Bringing a 20-year-old rookie to the big leagues undoubtedly has its drawbacks. If for no other reason than the tremendous ammount of pressure it puts on this kid, not to mention, pressure that significantly changes his learning curve and development as a major leaguer.
The Cubs, quite simply, are asking Castro to be better–and for him to do it sooner.
His spacial talents make him capable of both, but there will be some serious learning curves in between.
