It is amazing how momentum, streaks and slumps play such a significant role in the game of baseball. You know the saying "we're on a roll". It seems when things are going good they continue that way and, unfortunately, it's the same when you're on the other side of the fence. And that is what I call "baseball karma".
What is Baseball Karma
Baseball Karma has nothing to do with having the physical abilities to excel in the game of baseball. It has everything to do with your baseball mindset. If you believe in yourself, and your team, and you have a positive attitude the baseball karma is with you.
Baseball karma is the belief that, no matter how dire things may appear, you still believe that you can win. Of course, teams are going to lose but to be able to come out and with the same positive attitude the next game is what baseball karma is all about.
Example of Baseball Karma
I mean you baseball karma affecting the game all the time. Take a look at the Milwaukee Brewers. At the end of August they appeared destined to make the playoffs. But like the previous year, they are floundering in September and may not make the playoffs for the second time in two years.
It is so bad that management actually fired the manager with about twelve games left. Did they fire the manager for insubordination? No, Did they do it because his strategies were wrong? No, again.
The front office made the change because it appeared that his players had lost confidence in him. So by replacing the manager they are looking to change the mental attitudes of the players and bring in a new positive influence. This is the greatest example of how baseball karma affects the game of baseball.
Is there any way to measure baseball karma? There are some obvious signs such as the body language of players, how hard they play on the field and how they come together as a team.
We won't know if the managerial change in Milwaukee will work; we will have to wait and see.
Learn Baseball Karma.
