Brosius Update

Remember how that Scott Brosius baseball card mysteriously appeared in my kitchen last month? And how that convoy of cars with Michigan plates kept driving past my office?

Now a convoy of Michigan baseball players is headed to Oakland. And if that wasn’t coincidence enough, check this out:

  • Scott Brosius was traded from Oakland in a deal for Kenny Rogers
  • Kenny Rogers was traded from Oakland in a deal for Terrence Long
  • Terrence Long was traded from Oakland in a deal for Mark Kotsay

When we look back at the ALDS series between the Yankees and Tigers, what are we going to remember? Kenny Rogers’ shutdown performance, right?

When we look back at the ALDS series between the A’s and Twins, what are we going to remember? Mark Kotsay’s inside-the-park home run, right?

Spooky, eh? I’m beginning to feel like the Japanese guy from the new TV show Heroes who finds a comic book with details of his own life on the news stand. This is getting really freaky.

What’s next? What’s going to happen when Kenny Rogers faces Mark Kotsay? Stay tuned…

1.  If Kevin Bacon is throwing out the first pitch to Game One, I'd seriously consider an exorcist for your house.

2.  Maybe Kotsay will fly out to new Tigers center fielder...Terrence Long!

3.  2 More likely, Long will lose the fly ball in the sun.

4.  As Kotsay steps into the batters box, the tv camera cuts away to a shot of Scott Brosius sitting in the stands.
