Starlin Castro Newsbeat

Think Cubs should trade Castro with Addison Russell here? Think again | Chicago

Castro has looked great this year.

Castro has always seemed to genuinely want to become a great all-around player, and tried to follow the leads of each new manager, infield coach and hitting coach that came through the Cubs turnstile during his career.

Maybe the communication is better with this manager and staff. Maybe the obvious influx of better talent and the real intention of trying to win again has made a difference.

Whatever it is, Castro said he does more daily work before games in the field than he ever has. And has taken a more aggressive approach and is serious about responding to Maddon’s challenge to several of his players to go after a Gold Glove.

“I don’t want to be no joke anymore,” Castro said. “I try to make every play aggressive. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t matter.

“It’s really awesome how they talk to us. [Maddon] says the most impressive thing for him is: ‘Next year you’re in front of home plate and they give you the Gold Glove.’ I’m working hard for that.”
