2/20 Theriot on Starlin Castro
The talk this offseason has been whether or not young Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro is ready for the big leagues. Ryan Theriot’s heard it. If Castro is that good, Theriot could be playing second base.
“As it is now, I am the shortstop and I have been for three years,” Theriot said Saturday. I feel I’ve done a good job and he’s going to have to come get it.”
Will Theriot help Castro?
“For me, it’s exciting to know there’s somebody coming like that who can help this team win,” Theriot said. “If [Castro] does what he’s supposed to do, and does what everyone says he can do, I think everyone in this clubhouse is excited and happy for that. And I enjoy second base. Second base is fun.”
