Lets say the angels dont win another game in the ALCS. And then they dont win the world series for another 80 years any one thinking that there could possibly end up being a curse of A.J, just a thought.

For the millionth time - there is no such thing as a curse. There's crappy baseball. There's poor front office management. There's perpetual cheapness. BUT THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A CURSE.

No, the Angels are not as whiny and spineless as the Flubs and Red Flubs. They don't believe in curses, and neither do we.

The Sox are 2 wins away from the first world series in team history for the first time in nearly 50 years, and this is what you want to post? What "curse" the Angels could promote 80 from now? Why aren't you talking about how good of a performance Jon Garland had tonight?

Actually, Angels fan did speak often of a curse - of Donnie Moore. And then there was Gene Mauch, who carried the great 1964 Phillie Phlop into the 1986 Moore meltdown. 2002 exorcised a lot for those fans. They were real close in 1982 as well when they were up 2-0 in the ALCS against the Brewers. Cecil Cooper's two-out 2-run single in the 7th inning put the Brewers up 4-3 in Game Five and the Brewers held on to win it.

That was a great series.

A curse is useless scapegoat that useless teams have to blame all their years if ****ty baseball on. The Sox are not cursed in Oakland, they just played bad baseball then. There is no Billy Goat curse, the Flubs just sucked for years and years. There is no curse of the Bambino, the Red Sox didn't play good baseball for a long time. There is no curse of the Black Sox, the Sox didn't play good enough baseball to win a world series. CURSES ARE FOR SISSIES.

I could see it happening, but they would simply blame the ump. No reason to blame AJ, as he did nothing wrong (and to be honest, neither did the ump).

That's right. Their only "curse" is having an identity crisis.

Curses are bull**** excuses for having crappy teams over the years. They aren't real, they are there to give delusional fans think that their team's brutal play isn't really the team's fault. BULL****
