Marlon Byrd hit two home runs last night. He knew it was going to happen. From the New York Post:
“I was feeling good in B.P. and I was joking around with [Recker],” Byrd said. “I said, ‘Hey, if I get some pitches tonight, get some strikes, I’m going to hit two home runs tonight.’ I didn’t think it was going to happen.”
But Recker said Byrd’s prediction wasn’t a joke.
”He was dead serious,” Recker said. “And he did it. That’s amazing to me. He called it. You don’t see that very often.”
Only thing better would be if he promised them to a sick kid in a hospital. Like Paul O’Neill did that time.
