Astrology in the Afternoon: Braden Looper

Jihad is taking a day off from the projection project, so let's take this opportunity to see what's in the stars for the newest player who might be will probably be a Brewer, Braden Looper. Tom H. is reporting this deal likely won't be announced until later this week, giving Looper time to pass a physical. Looper was born on October 28, 1974, making him a Scorpio:

Your capable mind is working well all day. You are able to quickly divide the non-essential from the essential in no time at all today. A period of intellectual creativity has dawned in your life and expressing yourself with flair comes to mean more to you. Beating the odds through cleverness is appealing and this may lead to an interest in all kinds of financial speculation. Others value you for your ability to make practical decisions concerning group issues. You have a natural sense of what the public wants at this time. Clear decisions affecting others could be made now. Plans made today, should work out, no matter how far down the road they seem to be. If you are not with a significant other, this evening may be the time for introductions.

Going point by point:

You are able to quickly divide the non-essential from the essential in no time at all today.

Obviously this helped this deal go from nowhere to virtually inevitable in a day.

A period of intellectual creativity has dawned in your life and expressing yourself with flair comes to mean more to you. Beating the odds through cleverness is appealing and this may lead to an interest in all kinds of financial speculation.

Hopefully this intellectual creativity will carry over to the mound, where Looper only strikes out about 5.2 batters per nine innings over the course of his career, but has still posted an ERA+ over 100 in nine of the last ten seasons.

You have a natural sense of what the public wants at this time. Clear decisions affecting others could be made now. Plans made today, should work out, no matter how far down the road they seem to be.

At the very least, Brewer management seems to have a natural sense of what we wanted at this time, although it took long enough to get there. Glad to hear this one should work out.

If you are not with a significant other, this evening may be the time for introductions.

I'm pretty sure Looper is married, so he may have to settle for being introduced to the media and his new teammates.
