Off-Day Astrology: Todd Coffey

New, 9 comments

While the Brewers are between stops on their three-city road trip, no one is probably resting more comfortably than Todd Coffey, who pitched 4.1 scoreless innings over two outings against the Mets, including an eight-out save yesterday. Coffey has now pitched in sixteen straight outings without allowing a run, tied for the eleventh longest streak in Brewer history. He's also already appeared in seven of the Brewers' first twelve games, tied for fifth in all of baseball.

So how should Todd Coffey enjoy his off day? Let's ask the stars for advice. Coffey, born on September 9, 1980, is a Virgo.

Stay away from lifting and moving heavy things today, unless you can get someone to help or you wear a brace and bend from your knees--your back will be much more relaxed. There are opportunities to move equipment, help someone carry boxes, etc. Your professional life is interesting today, in that you are around entertaining, smart, as well as witty people. As much fun as it is to listen to a few jokes or witty remarks, it is also fun to hear your own voice--easy does it. At home this evening you may become aware of an elderly friend or relative that has some background of interest. Encourage the elderly in your family, or friend's family, to write down genealogy or event facts for the next generation. You could record their stories for posterity.

Going point by point:

I'm sure R.J. Swindle would love help moving into his new place in Milwaukee, and there's an equipment truck that needs unloading in Philadelphia, but resist the urge.

This is probably a pretty accurate description of a road trip with Bob Uecker.

Earlier I mentioned that Coffey's scoreless appearance streak is the eleventh longest in Brewer history. Pitching coach Billy Castro has the fourth longest streak: 19 games and 27.1 innings. Maybe Coffey should ask him about it.
