DO YOU BELIEVE IN A JINX?

Yesterday ESPN broadcaster (and one of the best in the business) Dan Shulman tweeted the following…

With the recent rash of perfect games, no-hitters and near no-nos, we spend a lot of time tweeting and talking about when to mention “it” – if at all.

Dan later tweeted…

And I agree with him 100%.  Do you?

This whole thing got me to thinking about baseball jinxes and how some folks either seriously believe in them, have fun in pretending that they exist or simply don’t believe in them at all.

Personally, I fall somewhere in the middle.  (Mulder, Me then Scully).  I have fun pretending that they exist and enjoy the occasional shout-out to the “Baseball Gods,” but when it comes to impacting a game or a performance, man, I don’t know about that.

What do you think?

I guess if it adds something fun/entertaining to the game, then I’m all for it.  But if someone is going to get legitimately upset because a broadcaster mentioned that a pitcher has a perfect game in the sixth inning, then it gets to be really eye-rolling.

Just something fun to discuss on a Friday.

Lineup, Gamenotes and Farm Report soon.

Expect good news
