Before the opener of this series against the Braves, I photoshopped John Maine as Maini Wan Kenobi. Lo and behold, the team won. And then Pelfrey pitched like a star. And now…well, today we’ve got Glavine on the mound, hoping to beat his buddy Smoltz, which hasn’t proved easy this year.
So, although this is dorky even for me, let’s see what happens when we photoshop our vs.-the-Braves pitching triumvirate in their respective Star Wars roles, shall we? If it gets us a sweep!? Well, then a new geeky superstition might be born for this here blog.
