  3. Season in review: CatchersRead the original story

    Wednesday Jan 28 | Royals Review

    Where does one begin with Salvador Perez? Do I start with his ridiculous reach of a swing on an outside slider from Jason Hammel that he barely pulled past a diving Josh Donaldson to put the Royals on the course for one of the most entertaining postseasons in recent memory? Or do I start where it all ended, with a ridiculous reach of a swing on a high fastball from Madison Bumgarner to end that entertaining postseason? I don't think I've ever been more elated at a sporting event than when Perez got that hit in the Wild Card game. I'm not sure I've ever been more deflated watching a sporting event than when the inevitability set in that Perez could not, WOULD not, lay off the high fastball.
