The Astros are Grounded!

I love the cliches.  There’s a sportscaster in our area that uses them all the time.  it’s a throwback to yesteryear I guess.

With last night’s win over the Houston Astros, the Cubs are back to .500 ball.  Who led the way for them?  Starlin Castro.  I should change the name to The Starlin Castro Blog.  He got three hits yesterday in the Lead-Off spot.  You know something?  The Cubs could be on to something here.

Who else played well?  Darwin Barney.  it’ll be the youth movement this year that will propel the Cubs to the post season.  Darwin Barney got two runs and two hits.  The kid is going to be great.

    I think we can look forward to seeing Castro/Barney at the top of the order much, much more often.

    I think you’re right.

    I hope they continue to have a good season. I was disappointed in the pitching and defense last night, but we can’t win them all.
