The Devil Wears Pinstripes

Posted on | June 13, 2024 | 1 Comment

The idea that Satan has a rooting interest in baseball games has been the subject of some speculative fiction over the years, and Baltimore Orioles fans can be forgiven for suspecting that the New York Yankees are beneficiaries of infernal influence. After beating the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday, the Orioles have a 45-22 record (.672) and, if they could maintain that pace until season’s end, they’d win 109 games.

Despite this superb record, Baltimore is in second place in the American League East, 2½ games behind the Yankees, who are 49-21 (.700).

The plot of Damn Yankees involves a fan of the rival Washington Senators offering to sell his soul to beat the Yankees, and it’s probably too early in the season for Orioles fans to make such an offer, but remember: Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets.
