Cub Tracks Counts On Castro

Starlin wants to bag more Cardinals. - Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

Starlin is getting in great shape and the Cubs are counting on a comeback from their young shortstop. Jed Hoyer works to fix a regret, Rick Renteria wants to be clear, and Cub Tracks soars with eagles.

Cub Tracks also wants to extend condolences to the family, colleagues and friends of Jim Corno. He was one of those highly influential people working largely behind the scenes of Chicago sports.

  • Rick Renteria is aiming for a clear message for his Cubs.
  • (Video) The new manager is also, of course, excited to get started. I really liked listening to Renteria's take on authority and earning the trust of his players.
  • Jed Hoyer acknowledged that not having a better bullpen last season was one of the front office's biggest regrets.
