I couldn't sleep tonight so I decided to search Twitter at little before crashing. I saw the Cardinals were in a tough spot with the bases loaded and no out in the eighth, so I wondered who screwed up. Turns out it was Steve Cishek, one of the new additions from a trade with the Marlins, who walked 3 straight before Seth Maness got St. Louis out of the jam.
For some reason I was curious to know more about Cishek, who has had ups and downs in his baseball career. From his Twitter feed and the magic of the interwebs, I found out that Cishek seems to be a pretty good dude.
His posts are generally positive, often family oriented and at times uplifting. He has a wife and a daughter, oddly enough named Emmie Grace, which made me think of my Grace. A self described follower of Christ, Cishek also keeps a bible verse in his back pocket when he pitches.
