Every single time I mention on twitter or on here that the Buccos of Suckitude are one win away from .500 ball, they lose.
The last time I wrote it Ronny Cedeno once again mangled a throw to first, which again started the tailspin and the crash and burn and just like that, bases loaded, Padres come from behind, Buccos lose. God. I hate that Ronny Cedeno and his apparent ability to throw the team into a death spiral with one bad play.
Bitter, party of one. I know.
Last night Ryan Doumit and his scary beady soul-dead eyes hit a freaking grand slam and the Buccos beat the Padres to bring themselves once again one win away from .500 ball.
They’ve won their fifth road series so far this season. Contrast that to the fact that they won FOUR road series ALL OF LAST YEAR, and you can see this is Big News.
BUT. It seems it will never happen if we keep talking about the POSSIBILITY of it happening.
So everyone needs to shut up.
The first rule of Pirates baseball is that we do not talk about Pirates baseball until they hit .500 ball.
No talking about it. No tweeting it. No blogging it. Zip it.
This post never happened.
