Jim Hendry (Wrigley Field): What is your honest opinion of how Starlin Castro would perform if we gave him the starting SS job out of the spring?
Jim Callis (2:05 PM): I heard some more talk about that on the radio here in Chicago a few minutes ago, and I think that would be pushing Castro too aggressively. He'll have just turned 20 and will have played only 31 games above high Class A. He's very talented—I think he's the best shortstop prospect in baseball—but I think he would struggle to hit right away and it could stunt his development.
