"Why you gotta be so mean?" -- Major League Baseball teams to Taylor Swift.
Somewhere along the way to becoming a global sensation, T Swizzle is becoming the most unwanted guest by ball teams. It seems that after every time she brings her 1989 tour to a baseball stadium, the home team suddenly goes cold.
Taylor played at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, home of the Blue Jays, on Oct. 2. The Blue Jays lost the next two games at home (with the playoffs about to begin, this is not good news if you're supporting the boys in blue!)
In July, Taylor played at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. The next day, the lights in the stadium went out three times! Pitcher Max Scherzer even humorously tweeted at the time, "Well who was the last person to use Nationals Park last? Taylor Swift…I blame her."
After she played in Houston at Minute Maid Park, home of the Astros, the home #squad lost seven of their next eight games. In August, Taylor played at Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres. They went on to lose 18 of their last 29 games of the season.
If this continues, baseball park operators may tell Taylor that they are "never ever ever getting back together."
