Kingman has gone to great lengths to hold off 20-loss bids, even resorting to the occult when interlopers such as Jose DeLeon, Scott Erickson, Omar Daal and Albie Lopez made uninvited runs at his club. Each fell short. "I'll bring out the voodoo dolls if Maroth gets up to 18 or 19," Kingman said. You don't believe in that stuff? Todd Ritchie of the White Sox was at 15 losses and closing last year when Kingman reached for the doll. The next thing Ritchie knew, he developed a sore shoulder that ended his run. "He doesn't have to win," Kingman said of Maroth. "He just has to stop losing."
