Cubs Trade Starlin Castro to Mariners for Prospies

Starlin Castro Is Headed West

Blog Photo - Cubs Trade Starlin Castro to Mariners for Nothing
The Chicago Cubs have decided to move forward without all-star shortstop Starlin Castro.  In a move that is surprising a lot of people on Opening Day of the 2013 season, Chicago GM Theo Epstein decided to make the move to continue to build for the future.  Castro has been sent to the Seattle Mariners in exchange for 2 of Seattle's top 6 prospects in reliever Stephen Pryor, AAA shortstop Nick Franklin, and a player to be named later.


It's no secret that both teams are trying to rebuild, but my question to Cubs fans is was this move really necessary?  This is an excellent trade for Seattle, and perhaps it will work out for the Cubbies as well, but overall it looks like the Cubs were just trying to unload Castro and completely blow up the old regime.  I personally thought he'd be a guy they would try to build around.  Seattle knows what they're getting, while for Chicago it still remains to be seen.
















One more thing that should be mentioned here...APRIL FOOLS!

I had talked to a few people last night about trying to concoct a few bogus stories for April Fools Day.  Good job on the Lebron story.  I've written a BS story on this day for a few years now.  It's been fun to see how many people bought it.
