Well, my first visit to the Cespedes Family Barbeque site was a memorable one.
While sitting down during lunch today, I clicked over to check out a recommended post from Jordan Shusterman entitled ”Chris Resop — The Most Interesting Reliever in the World”:
As some of you may know, I am quite fond of ridiculously lopsided batter-pitcher match-ups. The match-up that everyone’s been freaking out about lately is Paul Goldschmidt vs. Tim Lincecum, and rightfully so. It’s completely ridiculous. Anyway, I was recently checking out Starlin Castro’s most lopsided match-ups. Sure enough, there was Resop. Castro is 6-8 with three home runs, zero walks, zero strikeouts, and one hit-by-pitch against Mr. Resop. Interesting! Sorta. Using our buddy Daren Willman‘s amazing Media tab on Chris Resop’s player page over on baseballsavant.com, I went back and found video of the three dingers he gave up to Starlin.
To find out what Shusterman subsequently uncovered about Resop, you will need to visit his post.
