A Darker Nerd

Starlin Castro lines a double to score Luis Valbuena giving the Cubs a 2-0 edge over the Diamondbacks in the Cubs’ 2014 Spring opener.

The Cubs falls to the Diamondbacks 5-2 but set a Cactus League attendance record of 14,486 at the brand new Cubs Park.

Oh how we’ve missed you, baseball.

Darwin Barney tied the game with a 2-run HR in the bottom of the 9th, and David DeJesus gave the Cubs a 5-4 win with a walk-off RBI single in the 11th - September 21, 2012

Starlin Castro picks up his 500th career base hit off of A.J. Burnett.

This makes Castro the twenty-eighth player in Major League history to record 500 hits before the age of twenty three. :)

Done deal! Cubs secure Castro w/ 7 year deal →

The deal reportedly includes a $6 million signing bonus, with salaries of $5 million for 2013 and ‘14, $6 million in ‘15, $7 million in ‘16, $9 million in ‘17, $10 million in ‘18 and $11 million in ‘19. There is also reportedly a club option for ‘20 at $16 million, or a $1 million buyout.

If Castro wins the Most Valuable Player Award or finishes first through fifth twice, the final year of the deal and the option year would each escalate by $2 million.

The deal would cover all four years of arbitration for Castro, plus his first three years of free agency.

"Castro plans to stay in Chicago a very long time, and can’t wait to find out what Wrigley Field will look and feel like if the Cubs become an elite team. ‘Oh my God, it’s gonna be awesome,’ he said."

"I am much more comfortable this year because my English is much better and I can talk to everybody without help. Last year I was kind of lost and didn’t know where I was going. Now I have more experience at these things. I will take [teammate and fellow All-Star Bryan] LaHair with me everywhere I go."
