Starlin's bound to break down

August 30, 2012|By Bag Boy | For RedEye

Just a tremendous deal by the Cubs, locking up Starlin Castro for seven years. Maybe.

We'll see. There is a lot that can happen in seven years.

He could get injured. In fact, I think we all know this is bound to happen.

The ADD could really kick in, rendering him useless in the field as he will forget how many outs there are.

He could gradually become … a Cub. You know, time passes, you fall in love with life here, it gets too comfortable.

He could just implode and go away like Carlos Zambrano.

I would count heavily on one of these things happening.

Until then, enjoy the current version of the Cubs. Oh, one other thing could happen. Three years into the deal, Starlin could realize he'll never win a World Series with the Cubs and do everything he can to get out of town.

It happens all the time.

Call it a hunch, but it won't end well.

Cubs update: They hired Brandon Hyde to be their director of player personnel. Is it me or have they hired like five of those in the past two weeks? Lots of chefs in that kitchen.

The chefs on the Sox did everyone a favor by shipping Gavin Floyd to the DL. Please, Gavin, take your time healing, and welcome back to Dylan Axelrod (we hope). I like this kid because he's too dumb. Too dumb to know he's not supposed to pitch the tough teams tough and inside. Continued stupidity, sir.

And I'm just going to add the Orioles and Tigers to the Royals as teams the Sox just can't beat. Nightmares. That's baseball.

And nightmares for Notre Dame, too. It may start well with a victory in Dublin this weekend, but, my god, the thuggery! I guess we should finally congratulate them on entering the big time in college football … the hiring of thugs is certainly one way to do that! Good luck, Brian Kelly. And God bless!

And God bless the Bears, because I'm starting to think that protecting Jay Cutler won't be the biggest problem. No, running the ball will be. Or maybe finding decent safeties …

Nightmares.
