World Series over?
Thanksgiving right around the corner?
The Hample Jinx cannot be stopped.
You remember our old “friend” Gustavo Chacin, right? It’s been three months since my last update about him, so in case you’ve forgotten or are new to this blog, he stole a ball from me on 8/1/06 at Yankee Stadium and has been paying for it ever since. The latest news is that the Astros outrighted him today, which is basically a formal way of saying, “You stink and we don’t want you anymore so GTFO.” Here’s a screen shot of the article about it on MLB.com:
The article is much longer than that. This is just the first few paragraphs. But anyway, if Gustavo is lucky enough to get signed by some other team in 2011, he better improve upon the 4.70 ERA that he ended up with in 2010.
Happy holidays, everyone.
(Well, almost everyone.)
