A few days ago, after he blew a save, I wrote that Santiago Castilla should be coated with honey and staked out atop an anthill.
Today, he saved a game and struck out the side in the 9th. No mean feat.
Overall, since the Giants acquired him, Castilla has been great –roughly an 85% save-conversion rate and an ERA around 2.00. How could anyone (except me) ask for more?
But what I want is a ‘roid-fueled monster throwing 103, who converts 99% of save opportunities. Who doesn’t?
In the meantime, I’ll take Castilla. (and hold my breath every time he takes the mound)
