Dear Oakland Athletics Marketing Department,
We write to urge you to ban all future promotions involving A's bobbleheads. The evidence is clear: bobbleheads are cursed. Last year, both Rich Harden and Bobby Crosby were injured shortly before their repsective bobblehead days. Mark Kotsay committed 2 very uncharacteristic errors on his bobblehead night. And Jason Kendall got mired in a huge slump after he was immortalized in janky painted plastic. Some might argue that the evidence of a causal relationship between Jason Kendall slumping and the unveiling of his bobblehead is muddled by the fact that he has essentially been in one big slump during his entire time as an A, but what went down in the top of the 9th inning yesterday should prove once and for all that bobbleheads bring nothing but trouble. Please, do the right thing here and ban those little suckers.
