I Asked Daphne

Her interpretation was that I am "a bit psychic."

Eerie thoughts went through my mind as Chris Carpenter walked off the mound after the 3rd inning last night.

You see, during the first game of the 2007 season, the game Chris Carpenter's injuries started, I distinctly thought in my mind "he's hurt" as I watched the game unfold, before any announcement was made that he was. I saw it in his face that night.

I saw that same look last night as he left the mound after the 3rd inning. "He's hurt again" was the thought that went through my head.

Sure enough, that was the last inning he pitched.

And although it has been claimed he pulled a muscle in his rib cage while batting in the 4th, I don't believe it. Because to believe that would mean I am "a bit psychic."

"Told you."


  1. If pitchers didn't bat in the NL, you wouldn't have had the problem. Wink, wink.

  2. Barb!

    I still don't believe it happened while batting. You think I'm psychic?

  3. I don't know. What am I going to say next? :)

  4. Barb!

    Hmmmm...let's see...uh huh...okay...I'm getting something about you wishing you had more opportunities to watch Gilligan's Island as an adult.
