I love starting the month off with a yellow highlighter. And having that little square represent the last in a series of 5 wins (big thanks to Olerud, the man who owned last night's game) makes it even better. We've started 2 other months with wins: May (against the Rangers) and August (against the Royals). So, in 6 months of baseball, we're split 3-3, yellow vs. blue highlighter (April, June and July all started with losses).
So far, my prediction of winning at least six out of seven in these 2 series (Devil Rays and Orioles, combined) has come true. It isn't really so much a prediction as a "we'd better win these games to pad our lead in the division race" feeling. I suppose you can call it a demand. And for once, these people are listening to me. To be safe, we probably ought to paint the calendar with one blue square, preferably 8/7. For strategic reasons, I think losing 1 right before the 3-game series against the Yankees will bring good luck and ripen us for a sweep. But, that's just me. All in all, September really should be an easy month. An inferno of squares, all melded together to form one, unified, raging yellow rectangle. Like a comet propelling itself into the playoffs.
