so you and a friend go home with a MLB player at 3AM from a bar

and you think you'e just going there to sleep and maybe have milk and cookies?

yes, clearly he's in the wrong-

but talk about being led on.....



your move Theo - we're building the franchise around this kid still right?
welcome to chicago. nice work with Zambrano. have fun with this kid. he's talented but he's progressing too rapidly and knows he's good.

he's not humble like Rose - which is surprising considering he probably grew up in a worse neighborhood/situation than Englewood!
NBA Playoff Bracket - if the season ended right now....

Woman was drunk off her ass and went home with Starlin at 3 am.. Did she think she was going to play some video games?

No video games, but probably not sexually assaulted either (if that's what happened), and we'll probably never know the truth.

Exactly. Although I don't condone sexual assault, I'm pretty sure that the woman & her friend knew that they were going to his home for a three-some.

okay if a woman wants to come home with you at 3 AM after the bars, she wants to ****. And if she brings a friend with her? Hallelujah!

However, what makes her story interesting is that she actually went to the police after the alleged attack. If she is an actual victim of sexual assault than my heart goes out to her and her family. I'll never understand why people do that to each other.
We'll probably never know what happened, but this doesn't look good for Starlin at all. That kid has Derek Jeter potential, he shouldn't **** it up

Ouch. What timing. :o :)

---

Let's hope this accusation turns out to be false. I've definitely learned that just because someone is accused of a crime, that it certainly doesn't mean they've done a thing wrong. It's best to let these things play out before forming any sort of concrete opinion, especially this early on. Hopefully Castro will be exonerated at some point and he can continue his career untarnished. If not, it certainly will be a blow to the Cubs and their rebuilding effort.

Also, let's hope it's not true for the (potential) victim's sake. No one, regardless of the situation they put themselves in, should be subjected to that sort of treatment.
Let's play two.

I don't care what he/she/they expected by going to his apartment at 3am. As soon as she passed out she was off-limits - end of story.

I agree with this. If she passed out, then I think the clear wrong falls to Starlin. If she didn't, then the whole situation gets murky.

I think we clearly know where this argument is going... Is it wrong to have sex with a dead person?

This is just sad. Yes we all should hold off judging him until he is charged or at least more facts come out, but the same courtesy should go to the accuser. So many times when you see a story like this, people will automatically say innocent until proven guilty then go on to victim blame. That is actually why alot of women do NOT report rapes against famous/rich men. Yeah there are a few false rape accusations by women looking to get a quick buck, but there are even more that are too scared to report sexual assaults.

Castro is one of my favorite athletes, but I refuse to make excuses for him or judge him until I get more facts.
