  1. I think since the pitchers leg came so far towards Casilla he may have thought the ball was coming at him. Or he saw a ghost.

  2. This is (surprisingly) not Casilla’s first major league PA. He took a four pitch walk last year against the Marlins, because the pitcher apparently could not handle the vast distance between the batter and the plate.

  5. i think he was backing out right before the pitcher released to attempt to get the pitcher to throw a ball and draw a walk.
