fucking magnets!

on the meaningless coincidences front

in last night's indians-rangers game, indian outfielder shelley duncan (who hit two home runs off of justin verlander in the same game recently) made three consecutive catches on hits by three consecutive batters all in virtually the same exact spot, each catch requiring him to jump in the air to make the play. (video & more details). there must have been magnets in the out-of-town scoreboard (which featured two 47s, indicating the jersey numbers of the pitchers in cincinnati and florida at that point in time).
