Happy ugly lineup and knuckleballer day! Let's hope we get one of those weird ones where the guys who shouldn't hit go nuts while the regulars shrug on the bench. Or that Steven Wright pitches a shutout because, hey, the knuckleball is weird.
Or, if you're one of those people who believes in cosmic balance and regression to the mean to the point of ignoring the Gambler's Fallacy, that Wright decides to have today be one of his disaster performances that'll happen because, again, the knuckleball is weird. It'd be like losing a 2 to a King in War. Only not at all since it doesn't really work that way.
Oh well. After the last few games, the sky is decidedly not falling anymore. And while I realize this is perhaps a bit too close to the mood right before that 0-3 skid, who are we to learn from our mistakes?
