If you're like us, and had been hoping for the Sports Illustrated cover jinx to take care of the Tigers in the ALDS, you might not want to look at this week's issue, which features a heroic cover shot of Mariano Rivera. It's worth noting that Rivera has been on the cover once before — so long ago that he had hair — and that the last eleven years have gone just fine for him. So maybe he's immune. Either that or both teams are screwed, and you can pencil the Twins — who are now just one game back — into the ALCS.
