    Is there a way to search this blog, would like to see your take on Juan Castro finally being hit by a pitch(just noticed he’s the number one worst on the BACON list as well, wow)

    Yeah, I’ve been forgetting to put that search box in since I converted to a new blog software in March. It should be there now. Castro’s first HBP on August 20, 2008.
