Hello and happy Saturday.
Curt Casali’s season has kind of flown under the radar. His San Francisco Giants tenure got off to a pretty disastrous start, as limited playing time behind Buster Posey, mixed with tremendously awful BABIP luck, had his slash line looking rather ugly.
But all the while he called great games behind the dish, played strong defense, and seemed to fit in quite well. And then eventually the bat started to come around. I’ve noticed that some fans still seem to think he’s had a rough year, but it’s been a quality season for a backup backstop.
The Giants video team decided to use Casali as the star in their latest episode of “Catchin’ Up,” the fun little YouTube show they have where they play catch with someone on the team while asking them fun questions.
It’s worth checking out.
