Well, one of their writers does, anyways. "Now, to be clear, I didn't want El Profesor to help me place a curse of my own — on, say, David Freese, C.J. Wilson, whoever plays for the A's, or, for old time's sake, ex-owner Tom Hicks. Nor was this a Damn Yankees thing: my soul for a World Series ring. No, my motives were pure. El Profesor would be my spiritual cutoff man between the suspicious stuff happening on the field and the possibly wicked stuff happening in the heavens. I needed to reverse a jinx."
