MLB All-Stars were asked about their favorite superhero and Nick Castellanos didn’t disappoint:

He’s a dog that can talk and solve mysteries… duh:

Ohhh boy… if we are using Castey’s definition of a superhero as “he has special skills and he solves mysteries,” we are walking a slippery slope. If that is true then McGruff the Crime Dog is as much a superhero as Scooby. Does that also mean that pot head Shaggy is a superhero too? Are Fred, Daphne, and Velma? Is Sherlock Holmes a superhero? What does a horse shoe do? Are there any horse socks? Is anybody listening to me?

Webster’s Dictionary defines superhero as, benevolent fictional character with superhuman powers, such as Superman.” Is talking a superhuman power? I guess so because not all dogs can talk. If that’s the case, I would argue Scooby Doo is more of a superhero than Batman. Without Lucious Fox, Batman is nothing but a trust fund baby. But with Lucious he’s a trust fund baby with cool gadgets that fight crime. Scooby Doo fights crime with a dude who is on acid 24 hours a day and sleeps in a van. That’s more impressive if you ask me. 

Freddie Prinze Jr. gets it:

P.P.S. This has nothing to do with the story. I just wanted to get Rob Flashes in here. Guy is definitely not spending his All-Star per diem on lunch:
