Was Pedro trolling the Phillies?

Given the 300 times we’ve seen a pitch squirt out of his mitt, I seriously doubt this was intentional in the slightest.  

But I loved the giggle he gave back to Gutierrea after re-catching it. Props to the later by the way for how quickly he responded when it first popped out--guy has quick reflexes, which is one reason why he's been so good at the Hot Corner.

Yeah, and he's been trolling the Orioles and dozens of pitchers for three years by not catching pitches cleanly or blocking them. He just thinks it's cool to see how they'll handle adversity. 

I'd love to see a "Can you catch a ball that's not thrown right to your glove?" competition between Severino and Gary Sanchez.

Nope, no trolling.  He's just a master at dropping, or almost dropping, balls that hit him right in the glove.  He's terrible with a glove, and he was trying too hard to prove it.  If he wasn't one of the top hitters at his position, I'd have to question why we keep someone so poor at catching on the MLB roster....and to think there are some here that think he's worth 3.5M to keep around as a backup next year.  Puke.
