Well, well, Cubs fans! It seems to be that time of the year again, when the Cubs seemingly forget how to play baseball! Naturally, us Cub fans can get a little restless! Booing, swearing, and all sorts of things are done to vent, or to just act like a baby (It's all cool) . That's all good and fun, but it seems to me some of that anger today was targeted at our stud-ling out in SS. That ain't cool, and the Castro Boobird Face Kicking Club agrees.
Yes, 4 errors in 4 games
looks is bad, but what did you think he was going to do, field like Vizquel? Castro Boobird Face Kicking Club disagrees. The kid's raw, we all know that. He knows his fielding isn't looking so great, and that's what help is for. He worked with Trammel l, DeJesus, and (gulp) Theriot (Maybe that's why he double clutched today and had off-line throws) today for several hours. However, despite that he messed up 3 times and on the third time, was promptly boo'd by the Wrigley Faithful. The Castro Boobird Face Kicking Club disapproves. While, by all accounts his head is screwed on right unlike Rich Hill, booing the major piece of your future after bringing life to a team deader than George Washington (1 game counts, right?) just ain't cool. The Castro Boobird Face Kicking Club agrees. As I said, he is raw. His tools aren't going to come together until he's had more time to put them into use, and expecting anything less is foolish. If you want a mostly polished stud rookie, Heyward probably has more room for a few more fans on the Heyward Express. (Funding for this train was provided by ESPN)
Ofcourse, some people are going to say that he was called up too early and should be sent down. That won't help. Jerking a player around after making it obvious that he's here to stay will only hurt him in the long run. Optioning him after limited time in the majors reminds me of a certain center fielder who was deemed the Cubs' future...
And so that's where we, the Castro Boobird Face Kicking Club, come in! If you have not guessed already, we kick people in the face for not remembering (much like the Theriot, Byrd, Lee, and Ramirez) that patience is key. I, Jesus Christos, am the president of this fine club, with a grand membership total of 0. So uh.. we need people! If you believe that booing El Comandante is wrong or if you just enjoy giving a person a nice roundhouse kick to the face, come on down and sign up! We got fruit punch!
Remember, if you aren't with us, you could use some ice.
