I've mentioned this before but I am curious as to what you all have to say about it.

Does Castillo look like he doesn't set up a good target for the pitcher to throw to? It looks to me like he doesn't put his glove up right away until the exact moment when the pitcher is about to release pitch. Maybe that makes it harder for the pitcher to locate?

Just curious what you all think about that.

Location is given in the catchers signs. Really don't need a target.

Pitchers are building a book on Bryan.

Hm...that is not what I have heard before. For example, watching Yadier Molina, one of the things that they always praise about him is how he gives the pitcher a good target early on.

Maybe I'm wrong but I'd think it helps to have something to look at as the goal where you want to hit. I think it makes the umps call more strikes too.

Braun took PEDs and lied about it. I can't help but think that every time he makes a play.
