I LIKE it!
If this new-found winningness away from home has anything to do with the noticeably scruffier appearance of many of our players....keep it up boys. Adorableness Counts....but so does being Good At Baseball. Leave the razors at home if that's what it takes. We'll still love you even if you do start to look a little gross.
So now that we have the "Have a winning road-trip" monkey off our backs, the next big milestone will be "2 games over .500." Let's do this thing people!
But the whole winning thing wasn't even ALL of the good baseball news today brought me.
Garrett Jones got called up to play for the Pirates.
Suddenly the PNC Park baseball Tweet-up trip got 100% Garrett Jonesier. And that, my friends, is a very good thing.
This news confirmed a suspicion I had that I am maybe, just maybe, able to control the Pittsburgh Pirates' front office with my mind.
I'm pretty sure of it now. Because when we first planned the Pittsburgh trip, I wished that Andrew McCutchen would get called up before then. And like 2 days later, he was. And just yesterday I was telling someone that it would be really nice if Garrett Jones could ALSO get called up before the trip.
And THEN HE WAS!
Clearly, either I have a magic ability to have my wishes come true (but ONLY very specific wishes and only wishes regarding minor league call-up decisions by the Pittsburgh Pirates)...OR someone from the Pittsburgh Pirates front office has planted bugs somewhere in my home and is listening in. But that's a little creepy. So, I instead choose to believe that I am MAGIC! Yay!
---I'm sorry to all the Pittsburgh players who had to get traded in order to make all my McCutchen/Jones dreams come true. My bad :(
