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!

In addition to Telander being spelled incorrectly in the title.

Default Starlin Castro

For years Rick Telander was one of the writers who said Ron "The Scab/Pizza Man" Santo should be on the HOF. After many years of trying to brainwash everybody that the "Scab" should be in the HOF it finally happened this year. He at least waited until Santo retired before he started on how he should be in the HOF. As far as Castro goes the last time I looked he was hitting 270. Hardly HOF numbers. Also he's at best an average shortstop. He can't carry Alexi Rameriz jockstrap defensively. Telander is just another Cubs fan. I remember he dumped all over the White Sox for signing Albert Belle, citing Belles character issues. But of course he said nothing about the Cubs signing Milton Bradley. The Score hired Telander as one of their afternoon hosts a few years ago. I thought he was dull. When his show tanked in the ratings the Score pulled him from the airwaves. I was surprised when the Score hired him. I thought if anything Telander would hook up with David Kaplan on WGN radio.
