It’s been five months since my last Gustavo Watch
, but hey, it’s not MY fault that the guy hasn’t done anything newsworthy — or wait, maybe it is. Yes, of course it is! The Hample Jinx

about the minor leagues) just told me that Gussie-boy pitched seven scoreless innings in the Venezuelan Winter League.
Excuse me for a moment here…
The Venezuelan Winter League?!
to read the article about Gustavo’s latest forgettable accomplishment. Then scroll to the bottom and check out the comment I posted. (And BTW, what’s with the photo of him in the article? Is that a colossal zit on his lower lip? Or a cold sore? Ew-ew-ew. The Hample Jinx knows no bounds.)
