A lot of weird things happen to the A's. Clusters of injuries, massive, team-wide slumps, inexplicable mental mistakes at the worst possible time. All of them quite hard to believe, and quite hard to explain. But it all makes sense now, thanks to Jay Witasick. All this time, there's been an invisible man in the A's locker room:
"There's another man in this locker room, goes by the name of Badger. If the lights were out, it was completely dark, you could see him. You would. It's like the aura. Actually, if you hold a blue light up to him, he glows a lot."
Badger is a mischievous little gremlin, isn't he? I wonder if, after putting the entire A's outfield on the disabled list, he got bored and decided to go poke holes in some Yankee hamstrings, too. Which, given the miraculous Scutaro homer, might lead you to suspect that Badger is a Red Sox fan, except then how would you explain last night's improbable A's comeback?
Curt Schilling has a post on his blog about last night's game, where he discusses everything except the unexplainable comeback. First rule about Badger: don't talk about Badger.
