Karmic balance: Pujols & Soriano out

I heard a lot of chatter yesterday about how the Cardinals will finally fall back down to earth in losing Albert Pujols until the All-Star break. Cubs fans were privately rejoicing in his injury, feeling like maybe this really is Our Year. A few hours later though, Alfonso Soriano takes a pitch off his ring finger knuckle on his left hand, knocking him out as well. Soriano may actually be out longer than Pujols with the early prognosis of 6 weeks on the DL.  That actually puts his return somewhere between the All Star Game and the trading deadline. I think there is some mystical karma at work here in the Cards losing Pujols and the Cubs losing Soriano within about 24 hours of each other.  The moral for we Cub fans is to be careful when we wish others poorly, as that karma train can come backing into the station at any time, often right over your foot!  Be humble and keep winning, the rest will take care of itself.
