Take Me Out to the God Game

In June, USA Today ran a story in which the Colorado Rockies were described as the most Christian baseball team in the major leagues, with prayer meetings, bans on pornography and swearing in the clubhouse, and "a Christian-based code of conduct they believe will bring them focus and success."

"You look at things that have happened to us this year," [General Manager Dan] O'Dowd says. "You look at some of the moves we made and didn't make. You look at some of the games we're winning. Those aren't just a coincidence. God has definitely had a hand in this."
But the Rockies may want to look into whether other deities may be available, since apparently the best the Lord of All Creation is capable of in this day and age is a 55-58 record and 4th place in the National League West, the weakest division in baseball. Hosanna!
