Randy Rosario Makes the Spectacular Bullpen Homer Catch Seem Routine

The Chicago Cubs didn't fare particularly well in their season opening series in Arlington.

The Texas Rangers team against whom they bafflingly dropped two of three is probably going to lose 100 games this year, so this is certainly a proud moment for the Cubs and their families.

However, one net positive did emerge from this weekend tire fire.

Please observe:


Gloves are so last season.


Indeed, that Kyle Schwarber rocket was caught in the hat of his teammate Randy Rosario with minimum effort and almost complete indifference, as that casual bullpen scene resembled a luxury day spa.

The Cubs weren't awarded any extra runs for the meaningless play, but it was still extremely righteous.

Unfortunately, the same can't be said for pretty much every single Cubs reliever, as they ironically provided very little relief against the Rangers.


That was Texas slugger Joey Gallo taking CJ Edwards very deep to win the game 8-6 on Saturday night.

Somehow, it got worse on Sunday for the Cubbies, with the bullpen allowing six more runs in an 11-10 defeat.

But enough about incompetent relief pitching, let's see another bullpen homer hat grab:
