Default Rick Telander

Anyone catch his column today? He refers to Starlin Castro as" 2 time all star and potential HAL OF FAMER! "
This probably qualifys Risso for sainthood!

What does Castro have to do with Rizzo?

I really hope the OP was written from a cell phone.

That being said, the exact quote, "Castro is a two-time All-Star and potential Hall of Famer," is absurd.

It would be absurd to call Mike Trout a potential HOFer, and Trout is a better talent than Castro.

Castro would not be a HOFer if he spurted out the same numbers for the next 10 years.

Telander is a huge Cubs fan. Grew up in Peoria, went to college in Chicago, etc. Wrote a column very recently about all the great times he had on the rooftops overlooking Wrigley as a young man before they went corporate. Today's article was about the great Darwin Barney and Starlin Castro. He has no bias towards one Chicago baseball team.

Castor's numbers don't add up.

I saw the article this morning and also thought he was jumping the gun on that. Long way to go, Rick.

This thread is comedic gold. Moronic typos, plus a rather dubious assertion about Starlin Castro's potential. Can't beat it!

Then there's always the 70's R and B band,The Jimmy Castor Bunch.

Who among us can forget "The Bertha Butt Boogie??"

(That is an actual song title."The Bertha Butt Boogie".Released just as Disco began to flood radio in 1974-75,IIRC) .This is a what a 50 year old remembers.
