Juan Castro Asked To Step Down From Interim Hitting Coach Position, Pirates 9-1
Some may be disappointed with the weekend sweep at the hands of the Pirates. Cueto got beat up today, even allowed a home run to Xavier Nady. The offense was horrible the entire weekend utilizing Castro's technique, to put the ball in play, weakly, roughly one half of the time. But the author remains optimistic because three with the Cubs starting Tuesday. Ryan Dempster's even in the rotation this year. He will be repaid for shanghaing the Reds at the trading deadline a few years back. The author is confident that the offense outside of Paul Bako will remember how to hit in the near future.
