I have to say, I’m always worried in a superstitious way about posting things about my fantasy baseball team – if I talk about how well someone is doing, I’m always sure it means he’ll collapse soon, and if I think someone is just about to turn on the jets, that’s a surefire way of meaning he’ll end up on the DL soon.
So, when I posted a recent entry about Matt Morris, asking why he couldn’t keep up his great performance all season long, I have to admit I was prepared for this:
4 IP, 8 ER, 9 H, 3K and 2BB.
For those counting at home, that’s a lovely 18.00 ERA and 2.75 WHIP for the game. Not really what you want to see – but again, this is what I do to myself. I still believe he’s got good value all season long, but that was just one big ol’ karmic slap.
