Luis Castillo Giveth and He Taketh Away

Luis Castillo made a play last night that was as good as his drop last week was bad. Ranging way to the right, Castillo dove for the ball, got to his knees, and threw the strongest four hop throw to first that you will ever see.

No hype. Great play.

Castillo also went 3 for 3 with an rbi and two runs scored.

Wow, a positive post. I have discovered that positive posts are rare in sports blogs. This is especially true if a.) you are attempting to be funny and b.) your team is under performing. From now to the allstar break, with the Mets playing a slew of tough teams while sending out a motley bunch of scrappy bush leaguers, I will try my best to avoid typos.


  1. Good post.

    Was a great play, but not best baseball moment last night. That was the CWS when the ESPN guys talked ad nauseum about how wet the balls in the umps ball bag were, cuz of the heat and his sweat. Hot, sweaty balls in a bag, and Orel Hersheiser (who is quickly becoming the commentator with the most interesting insight to me) - comedy gold.

    And "Animal House" was on, and it was funny except Larry Kroger sleeps with a 13-year old, which made me cringe.
