The Curse of Scott Patterson Continues
I didn't really follow the game tonight, I'm too busy researching a paper, but I saw the final line. There's only one way to explain this. Well, there's two actually. The first is Baltimore's obvious April dominance. They own this month, there's nothing you can do about that. The second explanation is much more dark, much more occult, much more horrifying: Scot Patterson cursed us. We didn't put him on the 25 man roster coming out of spring training, he couldn't sleep the night he got cut, so he cursed us. Can't blame him, he pitched his heart out and got cut and left behind for less effective closers. Sure, he said Girardi had a stupid haircut, but that's no reason to cut the guy. So we can only reverse the curse by calling him up. With two young pitchers who can't stay in games long it will only be a matter of time.
