Pedro – Blame Me
Pedro’s pulled hamstring is all my fault.
You see, I picked Pedro for my fantasy baseball team — and any Met on my fantasy team is doomed. I thought it was a silly coincidence that Carlos Delgado was terrible last year, that Cliff Floyd was the one Met who put up poor numbers in 2006, that Carlos Beltran and Mike Piazza were both terrible in 2005, that Jeromy Burnitz was a bust in 2002, and all those guys just happened to be on my fantasy team during those times.
Lesson learned: don’t mess with the baseball gods.
Maybe if I drop Pedro now, the news of his injury will be better than we expect? If it turns out that way, I’ll have to figure out how to use this power for something more useful … like creating peace in the Middle East.
