How Well Did I Predict John Sterling's Homer Call for Starlin Castro?

Please allow me to take a bow. Right before spring training, Kavanaugh and I predicted how we thought John Sterling would call home runs for this season's newest Yankees. Here's what I guessed for second baseman Starlin Castro:

"Starlin is New York's new darlin'!"

As easy (and probable) as it would be for Sterling to use a pun on "Star" (e.g., "Castro's got star power!"), I think he'll go the rhyming route.


Well, in the second inning of Wednesday night's game against the Astros, Castro blasted a dinger to left and Sterling delivered this call: "He is Darlin' Starlin."

My prediction wasn't perfect, and it wasn't nearly as prescient as, say, Joe Posnanski forecasting the Royals' 2015 World Series win five years in advance. Still, I have a pretty decent handle on Jawn's corny home run calls at this point.

By the way, pretty weak call. That's what Sterling came up with in his five months off?
