New Yankees Player Sets Record

Here's a Castro I can root for.  From NBC Chicago:
Starlin Castro spent the first six seasons of his baseball career with the Chicago Cubs, but after being traded from the team this offseason, he is already setting records at his new home in the Big Apple.
Castro, who was sent to the New York Yankees during the offseason, has already racked up eight runs batted in through his first three games with the team, making him the first player to ever accomplish that feat in the long and storied history of the franchise.
In getting 8 RBIs in his first three games as a Yankee, Castro has outdone players such as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Thurman Munson, Don Mattingly and Alex Rodriguez.  Read the full story.  Note that the source is from the city where Castro played last year.  Go here for Castro's individual statistics.
