Gustavo Watch, Part 22

Guess who got sent down to the minor leagues the other day.

Here, I’ll give you a hint:

AHH HA HA HA HAHAHA AHH HA-HA HAAAAAAAA!!!!
Gustavo Chacin, the man who stole a baseball from me on 8/1/06 at Yankee Stadium is still falling victim to the Hample Jinx nearly four years later.

Gustavo had joined the Astros earlier this month and actually pitched quite well, posting a 1.69 ERA in four relief appearances — but that just goes to show how powerful The Jinx really is. Even after working his way back to the majors (albeit as a middle reliever for the worst team in the National League) and then doing a good job, he was still demoted.
Maybe the the Astros will give him another chance (to fail even worse).

i really hope you dont believe you have anything to do with him being send down. you do not have the power to jinx people no matter what you think. he still made it alot further than you have being in the minor leagues right now.you are the one in the crowd asking people like him to throw you baseballs.

He may have gotten sent to the minors but you rob baseballs from minors. So in fact, it maybe was you who has fallen a victim to the Gustavo Jinx…

P.S. does Jona have to pay the full or dixcounted price for her many “Watch with Zack” sessions…inquiring minds want to know

It was like sitting on the back of a pit bull watching him pitch for the Astros. All seemed well, but you were constantly waiting for things to turn ugly. Gustavo is beyond done and I hope he doesn’t come back up. The Astros are too stocked up on old, past their prime players and need to focus on getting some new blood.

Zing!

ANTWAN-
I’d agree with you, but then we’d *both* be wrong.

DONNY-
Thanks for the local scouting report.

Uh oh Gustavochacin1980. Look what you’ve done. :D

I’m just waiting for the article on CNN talking about a guy getting run over by a bus who has a username Gustavochacin1980.

Can you put this so called jinx on my ex wife? We would love to see her break an arm or leg.

while i can’t endorse my AL West competitors, the good news on this post is that the A’s have signed former-Mariner John Halama. He always seemed like a good guy when he was with the M’s…eons ago. Best of luck to Mr. Halama…but hopefully the bullpen will blow any wins he is in line to earn (you know, so his good performance won’t hurt the M’s).

I will be seeing Round Rock play in Omaha this weekend and I send along your best wishes to Gustavo.

STLFAN-
Wow.

SCOEAJ25-
Your ex-wife hasn’t personally wronged me, so no. Sorry. The jinx wouldn’t be effective on her anyway (for that reason).

TODD-
See? Everyone wants someone to suffer.

BIGLEAGUEBASEBALLS-
Thanks for the link.

MOOSE146540-
Ha, excellent.

EVERYONE ELSE-
Hi.

Zack, Astros just re-recalled him. They placed Bud Norris on the DL and called Gustavo up before today’s game. Looks like he is back in Houston for another 15 days or so.

Yeah, I hate to say it Zack, but he pitched today after taking over when Oswalt got ejected, he even hit a home run ball!

Zack, sorry to say but it looks like your jinx only applies to Chacin’s ability (or rather inability) to pitch. He somehow managed to HIT A SOLO HR today while batting in relief during a blowout of Houston by the Nats! Don’t worry, he only has about 2 weeks til Round Rock part deux.

Sorry Im glad Chacins career isnt going well. He isnt a very nice guy. Ive had a few encounters with him, and he isnt pleasant at all.
