Magic is crazy man. I don’t trust anyone who can do a really good magic trick. You know why? Because they’re smarter than me by a lot. They can deceive me with anything they can do and there’s nothing I can do about it. I’m incapable of learning magic tricks on my own and it pains me, but life is life. I have such a tiny brain that I will never be able to figure out how you put my card inside a backpack while I was holding the card. That trick Cuddy did to Denard Span above legit breaks my brain.
Timmy Kurkjian recalled a funny story this morning about how Michael Cuddyer was so good at magic that it forced Luis Castillo to move lockers across the room so he could be away from the witch. I don’t blame him one bit. It’s like in Major League with Cerrano and his magic shrine. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near that thing out of fear of being cursed. Cuddy probably snuck on Castillo after that a bunch of times and tried to spook him. Castillo, in his mind, thought Cuddyer was of a higher power. Probably made sure he wasn’t in the shower when he walked in. Avoided him at all costs. When you’re dealing with black magic you have to take all precautions.
You have to imagine Castillo blames Cuddyer for his famous dropped ball against the Yankees. Dark sorcery no doubt about it.
I think Tommy Smokes is good at magic tricks which concerns me since he’s my co-host.
