More Epstein: Theo talks Castro on Waddle and Silvy

36

Theo had a lot of praise for Starlin, raving about what all he's done at such a young age and how he has an "immense" ceiling. What I found interesting was what he said about Castro's defense. A lot of people think Castro would be better suited moving off of SS to 2B, 3B, or even CF. I've been adamant about keeping Castro at SS, and sounds like Theo isn't too worried about Castro's defense as of now. "When Derek Jeter was just about the same age he made 56 errors in the low minor leagues," Epstein said. "[With] defense especially there is maturation that only comes with time and experience." Hearing this from Theo really makes me confident that the Cubs are gonna stick with Starlin at SS for the long term. As Theo said, he's got all the physical tools. It's just a matter of repetition and good coaching for him to reach his defensive ceiling. Theo also talks about Soriano, among other things, saying "there's more there" and talks about getting maximum value out of every player. Waddle and Silvy podcast
