Catcher Miguel Montero already has predicted Starlin Castro will be the MVP of the postseason, and it would be quite a turnaround. Castro was batting .236 when Maddon took him out of the lineup on Aug. 7, and instead of pouting, Castro has accepted the move from shortstop to second and made adjustments at the plate. He led the NL in batting in September, hitting .426.
I guess I missed this. Obviously if he thinks Castro will win the MVP of the postseason, then he's thinking the Cubs win the World Series. I'll take it. That kind of prediction takes balls, but I like it.
