Cardinals Snatch Defeat From Jaws Of Victory

That win was RIPE for the taking. Holliday led off the 8th inning with a double. With Adams and Peralta coming up, you figured this was going to be doable. Instead, Adams weakly hit the ball to the opposite field (for the first time in a month) and Peralta (who had Holliday on 3rd base due to a wild pitch) struck out. Molina couldn’t save the day and grounded out to third. After...

Cubs catcher Wellington Castillo takes foul tip to the junk (GIF)

Your Opening Day was better than Cubs catcher Wellington Castillo’s.  He went 0 for 2 with two punchouts, caught ten innings and called the pitch that Neil Walker killed for the Pirates’ 1-0 walk-off win.  But all that paled in comparison to the foul tip he caught off the bat of Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez. The worst part – he didn’t catch it at all. via @samthomas86...

The difference is that Castillo could attempt to help and support the oft-criticized shortstop for the Chicago Cubs.
