  • Welington Castillo ate Beef Wellington for the first time, because why not?

    Any food fan is immediately reminded of Beef Wellington any time they think about Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Welington Castillo. It's an easy connection to make, even though the words are spelled differently.

    [ELSEWHERE: Yep, the Mets are back in sole possession of first place.]

    Well, after a strong three game stretch in which Castillo hit four home runs, D-Back fans started using the hashtag #BeefMode on Twitter to describe Welington's heroics. 

    Castillo approved of his new nickname, but admitted he had never eaten Beef Wellington, and knew nothing about the dish.

    That changed Tuesday, as FOX Sports Arizona decided the player ought to at least sample the meal.
