For those of you who don’t know what roshambo means, you’re about to find out and it’s not a pretty sight.

Early in the season opener versus the Pittsburgh Pirates, James Russell threw a fastball low in the strike zone and Pirates free-swinger Pedro Alvarez only got a teeny-tiny piece of the ball. Enough for it to glance off the bat and travel farther down past the Cubs’ catcher Welington Castillo‘s glove. The effect this had on the catcher Castillo was painful, it also probably caused nausea, sweating and his voice to crack. See for yourself.

*Note: James Russell throws his fastball at about 86 MPH regularly*

WARNING: What you are about to see may cause nausea, sympathy pain or vomiting. Viewer discretion is advised.

Welington Castillo, Cup Check, Chicago Cubs 

Thank goodness for cups right? No wonder the guy went 0-2 with two strikeouts. And to cap it off, the team lost in extra innings.

How about one more time, in slow motion…

Shortly thereafter, the sickness and that feeling that you want to cry sets in…
