If you’re going to make a dreary announcement during a Nick Castellanos at-bat , please know that he will be aware that you are doing this and will spoil it. This is the science now.
That must be the case because Castellanos just permeated what was supposed to be a reflexive moment of honesty and humility with a heavy blow for the third time in three years. At this point, if you’re a broadcaster who starts apologizing when he hits Nick, that’s on you.
On Sunday, Castellanos stepped onto the plate for his new team, The Philadelphia Phyllisin the spring training competition against Toronto Blue Jays. Back Martinez He was on the call for Toronto and when the camera moved to the Blue Jays coaches, coach Pete Walker, who was He was arrested on Friday for driving under the influence of alcohol. He was released on bail the same day.
While the camera was on Walker, Martinez began discussing Jays manager Carly Montoyo’s quote about the incident. All the while, Castellanos’ offensive advanced.
“He said the Blue Jays and I knew what happened,” Martinez said. “The Pete Walker incident. But we’re still gathering information. Out of respect for the process, that’s all we’re going to say for now. The Blue Jays as an organization have taken the same path, so, unfortunately, it was very important with Pete Walker. A well-respected pitching coach. The Blue Jays and the organization will wait until All the information is collected. So he continues to work as the field coach and has been here today watching those Blue Jays bowlers, so far three bowlers today, and we’re set to see Thomas Hatch, Julian Meriwether and maybe Anthony Castro throughout this game…”
That’s when Castellanos interspersed reading the apology by pumping one into a shallow right field to remind everyone that when there’s bad news to be read aloud, he’ll always be there to make things a little more awkward.

But what really cemented Castellanos’ role as a spoiler of bleak moments on air was his role House run during Bally Sports presenter Ryan Lefebvre’s speech in Kansas City, eulogy for George A. Gormanthe father of Pat Gorman, the royal family’s longtime equipment manager, who recently passed away.
Here’s the Royals broadcast from Nick Castellanos’ home race.

You can’t make this stuff.

Castellanos is known to spoil any real moment of humanity that occurs during his time, a minor league announcer who was praising his uncle during last year’s game said he hopes”We didn’t get Nick Castellanos And someone’s walking home to tie the match now” right before that happened. As if he had angered unholy Nick from afar.
Thanks for the moment, Uncle Charlie. I love you. pic.twitter.com/yfRiPHMao6

The lesson is, as always, that no matter who he’s playing for, no matter what transgression happened, no matter who died, Nick Castellanos will always be there to take your very serious moments and turn them upside down with his batting. Ball with a stick during discussion.
And look, people love it and are demanding more of it.
It should be fine, there is no other explanation https://t.co/aTW27dDVa3
