The article presents a prediction of the performance of several baseball players on the basis of their Zodiac signs. Milton Bradley of the Oakland Athletics, of the Zodiac sign Aries, is the god of war, battling his opponents to the death. He's just as hard on his teammates. The Geminis will struggle with their twin nature. Unfortunately, the lame-footed bench jockey will emerge. Frank Thomas belongs to this sign. The Leos will reign like a lion in their new ivy jungle. A player belonging to this sign is Juan Pierre.
