The Curse of Randall Simon
The Pirates swept the Brewers for the first time since June of 2006 this week. Earlier this season the Pirates broke what had be come a 17 game losing streak to Milwaukee. The Pirates recent pitfalls against the Brewers can be attributed to the little know Curse of Randall Simon. Of course the incident that sparked that curse is well known.
Simon was cited for disorderly conduct, fined $432 and issued a public apology but its affect lingering effect on the Pirates is undeniable. Our statisticians are still working on calculating the exact record the Bucs have had against the Brewers since the sausage incident in 2003, but it does not favor the Pirates for sure. Hopefully with the 3 game sweep this Curse of Randall Simon and the Sausages is behind us.
