But Castillo played 10 years in the NL, all with the Marlins. In fact, it was Castillo who hit the infamous fly that spectator Steve Bartman caught - before Moises Alou could - in the 2003 NLCS at Wrigley. Last season, with the Twins, was his first in the AL.
In the top of the fifth, Morgan’s partner, Jon Miller, noted that Castillo has played before in Wrigley. Morgan said nothing.A number of people emailed about this yesterday, and if I hadn't been out house-hunting with Mrs. Tremendous I would have posted about it earlier.
Just to add my own two cents to this: Morgan called the 1997for NBC, which Castillo played in, not to mention how many Sunday Night Baseball games the Marlins were in between 1996-2005 (when Castillo was a Marlin). Forget not watching other games to prepare. He doesn't watch the games he calls!!That would be the natural conclusion, yes.
2 outs in the 8th and an Angel gets a hit. Steve Physioc (with fevered, boyscout enthusiasm): "That's the way to start the 8th!"Simple, elegant, bone-brained: Physioc.
Joe talking about the Cubs defense and Ryan Theriot as SS...EDIT: Larry writes in to give Joe a much-needed shot in the arm:
"They also have here... but Theriot has won the job."
Well, I don't know if Izturis got the day off from the Pirates to go watch the Cubs-Mets game and that's what he meant (somehow I doubt it), but my guess is Morgan just doesn't know that Izturis ever got traded.
As much as I love piling on Joe, I'm certain he said "had" and not "has" in relation to Izturis."Either way, it's a wonder to behold, every Sunday night.
