Sometimes the SI cover jinx can be delayed-action - Strasburg had to go in for Tommy John surgery later in the season when he was on the cover (I still have that issue).

And Cal Ripken Jr is an enemy of DC baseball - he works for Peter Angelos (owner of minor-league affiliate club in Aberdeen). He deserves everything bad that happens to him.

It all started with the first issue.  Eddie Matthews was on the cover and died 46 years, 4 months and 2 days later TO THE DAY.

He's a spy in the enemy camp. He's tried several times to buy the team away from Angelos

I may be a Nats fan as well, but I love what Ripken's done for the game and how he carries himself.   ...Hate the city of Baltimore, but either way...

Certainly can't find any fault with OC for lack of commitment to his ideals.

I thought the jinx was only relevant to the issue just before the start of a championship game. Like the week before the Super Bowl or the issue before a World Series starts. IN more recent years the jinx that is more relevant it the Madden Football video game box cover. :mg:

I don't believe in jinxes, but maybe the Orioles will stop playing over their heads one of these days.

That day has yet to happen. They've been 34-16 since August 3.

Not happening.  OS leading Boston by the same score that the Cards lead us!
