Sveum: Castro’s mistake is “the last straw”
Yesterday Starlin Castro lost track of the number of outs in the fifth inning of yesterday’s game and allowed the Giants to score what proved to be the winning run. After the game, Cubs manager Dale Sveum has put Castro on notice:
Something tells me that the son of a former big leaguer and current big league manager wouldn’t make that kind of mistake, actually.
As for Castro: he apologized to his teammates after the game. But still: dude is not a rookie anymore. And there are too many decisions to be made at shortstop to allow for that kind of bubbleheaded crap. He really needs to shape up.
Oh, and one small quibble: unless Sveum actually benches Castro now, this was technically the penultimate straw at best, right?
