Today was certainly one way to display how not to play baseball. It seemed as if those first two innings were nothing but bad defense and boneheaded mental mistakes. The chemistry between Rodolfo Castro and Kevin Newman seemed visibly off and thats just part of what lead to the 4 runs (3 earned) to Bryse Wilson’s lone inning.
It’s a day that ends in ‘y’ so we just had to talk a little about Oneil Cruz again. However, it is Rodolfo Castro who gets us really talking. Today game was essentially the embodiment of Rodolfo Castro’s season as he not only showed some questionable decisions and defense on the field, but he also went 2-for-4 with a key home run. Oneil may be one of the more exciting players in baseball, but Rodolfo might be the most interesting based on the amount of times he becomes the center of a play.
