So you're saying I can't get excited when Atkins hits a homer off Clemens. I''m supposed to just keep quiet and pretend it didn't happen in fear of jynxing him as if he was throwing a no hitter. I don't think so.


Go Garrett ;D

Yeah.... last time I talked in the thread because he hit an HR, he performed well the next day too. Enough with this silly jinx stuff.

You're obviously still in the dark about how this thread works........

It isn't the NEXT game Garrett is affected in..........he's affected DURING his current game, when you guys flap your gums......

Seriously...........as much as I believe in this thread, I believe in the Jinx........because it's yet to be proven wrong.

From here on out, both of you, PLEASE keep your traps shut during Rockies games.........and just let "The New Garrett Atkins Thread" just work it's magic.

PLEASE!!!!

Another HR for Garrett today ;D I truly believe he would have had another if not for the in game posting in this thread :t

One thing I've noticed is that Garrett is a much better hitter when ahead in the count. Check out this comparison to Pujols...

Garrett Atkins after 2-1 count - .413 AVG, 3 HR, .739 SLG
on 3-1 count - .500 AVG, 1.00 SLG
on 1-2 count - .079 AVG, .132 SLG

Albert Pujols after 2-1 count - .111 AVG, 2 HR, .222 SLG
on 3-1 count - .125 AVG, .188 SLG
on 1-2 count - .382 AVG, .647 SLG

I think his HR today was on a 3-1 pitch. Very very interesting...
