    Re: Starlin Castro Trouble...

    Holy Crap! As a Cards fan, it never hurts my feelings when there is Cubbie drama. But no one wins in situations like this.

    I always wonder at the timing of these things. What does "last fall" mean, and why are these allegations just being made or coming out?

    He may want to come back for spring training a little early this year.

    I tend to be skeptical too when the events seem to have occurred awhile ago...but who knows?

    I feel the same about the drama too...it would be more fun to laugh about if Castro was hitting .190 through August (as a White Sox fan I experienced this with Dunn...it hurts)!

    Re: Starlin Castro Trouble...

    I know the report says it is "exclusive" but I would have thought that the Trib's website or the Sun-Times' website would have some mention of this allegation by now...nothing on either website...yet!

    Re: Starlin Castro Trouble...

    This situation isn't funny, and we'll have to see how the case goes. I do find it funny that only White Sox, Brewers, and Cardinals fans are commenting. Until now at least.

    Ummm...no one is even remotely suggesting that this is "funny"! Not even close...

    I am a Steeler fan and I felt/feel the same about Big Ben as I do this situation...and if either of those guys sexually assaulted a woman they should be in jail! But until the case plays out Castro is innocent...

    Re: Starlin Castro Trouble...

    Definitely nothing funny here. On first story, a terrible situation all the way around.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Hopefully it's just some women looking for money and attention but this is not good either way.

    Are you looking for your fellow cubs fans to come running to the defense of him? No one has made fun of the situation. If you feel like people are going against your cubs then they are. You have a player who is being accused of sexually assaulting a woman.

    Re: Starlin Castro Trouble...

    This is a bad situation for Castro. He is one of the best young hitters in the game.

    Hopefully his defense is better than his own on the field!
