Miguel Montero wasnt welcomed back to the Friendly Confines in a very friendly way. The guy who blasted a grand slam in last postseasons National League Championship Series and drove in the run that ended up being the difference in Game 7 of the World Series was booed repeatedly as if he was a rival St. Louis Cardinal, not an integral part of the biggest moment in franchise history.

Baseball players, just by nature of being together everyday from February to October, go through periods where they find weird good-luck charms, adopt random animals that are rally-bringers and decide that the most random things are making them lose. It came this week from the Toronto Blue Jays, who decided to stop wearing their new all-red uniforms that celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday because they’re “bad luck.” The Jays were supposed to wear them for all Sunday home games this season, plus for Canada Day.
