A Turn-On

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Hitters can't just ``turn it on'' when they want to break a slump, can they?
``Yes they can,'' Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. He was talking about Starlin Castro, whose average had slipped below .300 before getting consecutive three-hit games Sunday and Monday.
"[It's probably because] his average dropped under .300," said Sveum, a former hitting coach . "I've noticed a lot of good hitters, when that average gets below .300, I think they start turning it up a notch, too."
Castro's average was at .303 entering Tuesday's game against the White Sox.
