Castro Gets Day off After 82 Straight Games
NEW YORK (AP) -- Starlin Castro was out of Chicago's lineup for the first time this season because manager Dale Sveum wants to watch the game with the Cubs' prized young shortstop.

Sveum says he wanted to talk about game situations with the 22-year-old Castro, who has committed more than his share of mental mistakes.

In San Francisco a month ago, he trotted off the field with the ball in his glove after taking a throw from after a one-out grounder with the bases loaded, thinking he'd just made the third out. The Giants scored the tying run on the play, and beat the Cubs 3-2.

Last August, he was seen on national TV not watching as a pitch was delivered, and was benched for a game.
