I hate umpires still calling balls and strikes. Hate, hate, hate it. The pitch before the called third to Palanco could have been called a strike...... maybe it touched the zone, but the one he did call a strike was ridiculous. Not even a shade of consistency.

Yeah, and a WHIP of .967




Work with me here. My predictions are always wrong, so preemptively pointing out Odo's unsustainable ERA/xFIP differential will help ensure that he sustains his ERA/xFIP differential.

 

And if not... well, I tried.

I have yet to see a satisfying result from having Marwin play RF.

Man, Dickbert are savaging Angel Hernandez.

 

Rightly so, don't misunderstand, but when it gets to the point where long-time "company men" in the booth are talking about how terrible you are at your job, you may in fact be terrible at your job. The MLB needs a mechanism to fire umpires.

Send him to AAA for rehab.

I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.

Okay, would this be an anti-jjnx? Jinx deflection test? Straight up jinx? 

 

I need a scorecard to keep up...

Have you considered becoming a politician? If it works, you take credit, and if it doesn't, you blame your opponents.

Last year, the Twins give up 2 runs early, groan.

 

This year, the Twins give up 2 runs early, meh.

Option C: Or, not really care one way or another.

 

Which is my current option and might be due to the fact I'm 8 months from retiring.

You need to be positive for it to be a jinx, right? Pointing out stats with a negative connotation is just being a pessimist, right?

Coincidentally, I got something in my eye when that came on.

Nope, not allowed. We only allow retiring batters around here.

Jinxes tend to be pretty obvious, once you start to look for them. Anti-jinxes, OTOH, are kind of subtle and I'm really never sure whether or not we have one.
