Mulder: He psyched the guy out, he put the whammy on him!
Scully [skeptical]: Please explain to me the scientific nature of “the Whammy.”
Sorry. Just remembering my 1990s crushes. I was inspired to by this, from Corey Seidman of CSNPhilly.com:
Fifteen to twenty years from now, when Cole Hamels‘ playing days are over, several sticking points will come up in most conversations about his career.
The 2008 World Series.
The $144 million contract.
The lack of run support.
And those damn Mets.
The Mets have had Hamels’ number for most of his career. Yet the Mets have stunk for most of Hamels’ career. So why do they always seem to hit him so well? Seidman investigates why this is. His answer makes a lot of sense. And no, it has nothing to do with hexes, curses or the whammy.
But the truth is out there.
