another day another castro error



You do realize that castro has been playing pretty solid D the last couple of weeks right?


Yeah, he's only tied for 3rd in errors committed this year instead of first. Good show.

damn if Barney can hit a home run here it's gonna be a double digit score today. Nothing cures a hitting slump like facing Jeff Suppan

Cubs wanna' make soup out of Suppan.......just need to keep swinging, stirring.....and scoring. That's the formula.

Castro had 8 errors in first 28 games, hasn't committed one since in 19 games.

More important hitting with RISP.


Castro has been doing much better than most of us realize or give credit for. He is 7th in Range Factor/9innings for SS. Hes 6th in total zone fielding runs above average for SS. Hes 4th in Defensive runs saved for SS this year. Hes 2nd in out of zone plays made this year for SS. And most impresive, hes tied for 5th in defensive WAR across all positions currently this year. So can we all stop pretending like Castro cant play defense? And dont bring up errors, hes 22 its going to happen.

Going back to the night he hit the triple splits on OPS he was at .645 with RISP. Bases empty .754. Has to have gott better since.

Just checked and no one on OPS=.749 W/RISP OPS=...749. Has improved greatly.
