The Undeniable and Irresistable Interplay of Jinx and Anti-jinx

For jinx/anti-jinx, read forward/backward. For anti-jinx/jinx read backward/forward.

No, we haven’t had that discussion, and that is my bad. Lowrie is awesome. I think he is very much in the Pedroia kind of mold – doesn’t strike out much, has some patience, and can scatter hits around. He is putting up super solid numbers right now. Very impressive to me is the 31 RBIs for 44 hits. He’s come through big. I also like the 0.377 OBP.

Have we discussed how Lowrie is an awesome contributor?

    It is immeasurably short-sighted to underestimate the magnitude of my unintentional Red Sox jinxing.

  • I am still trying to get my head around John Lester, stopper extraordinaire.

  • The Uncanny Canadian

    Except for this weekend, when you totally jinxed him, fish!!!!!!

  • FISH, COME ON

  • Team = Baseball(“RedSox”)
    for p in Team.players:
       print “fish: I am still trying to get my head around %s, %s extraordinaire.” % (p.name, p.position)
    print “Mandos: MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!”

  • the classic baseball accident that is some falling down drunk or horsing around accident that is explained as “falling out of bed” or “slipping on ice”

    like when skinny partyhound actress/singers go into the hospital for “dehydration” or “exhaustion”.

    riiiiiiight.

  • Sorry, I mean Lester totally sucks.

  • In hockey, it’s unofficially referred to as “groin flu.”

  • So, what’s it like watching baseball in late August and still not knowing whether your team will be in the playoffs?

  • I can’t think of a bigger way to jinx your team! Ha!

  • Dude, the Angels have a 17 game lead. If they went 11-22 the rest of the way, the Rangers would have to go 27-4 just to tie them. I’m pretty that when it comes to winning the division, the Angels are pretty unjinxable. That’s a bold statement when talking about the Angels.

  • I speak not of the division. I speak of the vast tracts of jinxable domain available amongst the post-season weeds. Beware my friend. Jinx does not recognize the boundaries of nation states, the baseball calendar or propriety itself!

  • The Uncanny Canadian

    I desperately wanted to jinx the Angels, but couldn’t do any better than Seitz. Seriously, the Angels have to be considered the favourites for the World Series. They will definitely win this year. No question.

  • I think this is the beginning of a dynasty. I think it wouldn’t be too soon to discuss the sizing of rings.

  • Ah, but you fools forget that I have yet to mention what may actually happen in the post-season. I simply know that my team will be in it, unlike some other teams that some people here may claim to root for.

  • Jinx can read between the lines.

  • The Uncanny Canadian

    Subtle jinx equates to a bad bounce on a hard grounder. Obvious jinx is K-Rod serving up a 3-run homer. Don’t tempt happy jinx ball.

    Seitz, welcome to 1978.

  • The Uncanny Canadian

    Just to clarify, tonight’s Angels loss was not caused by a Seitz jinx, but rather a far more powerful and prevailing jinx, namely that against any players on my fantasy baseball team. In this case, I have supremely jinxed Jered Weaver. Sorry, Seitz.

  • I think that through some kind of quantum superposition all the teams are going to make the playoffs this year.

    Does that jinx all of them? Will the World Series end up being between a pack of minor league bat boys and the Jamaican bobsled team?

  • I think that through some kind of quantum superposition all the teams are going to make the playoffs this year.

    Was Ann Althouse appointed commissioner when I wasn’t looking?

  • by trying to jinx all teams you have effectively unjinxed all teams meaning all teams will make the playoffs, meaning all teams are now effectively jinxed by me. Did I mention that bosons and bosox are indistinguishable in highly electric fields like Fenway?

  • N.B.:

    Examples of bosons

    Photons, which mediate the electromagnetic force
    W and Z bosons, which mediate the weak nuclear force
    Gluons, which mediate the strong nuclear force
    Higgs bosons
    Phonons
    Cooper pairs

    I thought bosons were bisons on botox. Go figure.
