Jinxing in reverse

Last Thursday I pointed out the fact that Alfonso Soriano hadn't drawn a walk since August 20th.

Well, the streak not only came to an end two nights ago (one day after I mentioned it) when Soriano drew a walk against Detroit reliever Fernando Rodney, but Soriano somehow managed to draw a walk last night too!

This is just another reason why baseball is so great.

A guy can go an entire month without drawing a single walk, hit .330 during that stretch and then walk in back to back games.

But fear not, Soriano started another walkless games streak with today's 4 at bat, 0 walk performance against the Tigers.

My only question is, does it qualify as jinxing him if he actually did something good?
