The hapless Pittsburgh Pirates have sunk so low in the standings that The Amazing Kreskin is offering his services to bail them out — for an undisclosed fee.
The mentalist, best known for his spots on late-night TV shows and a good run of picking winners of Super Bowls, Academy Awards and elections, thinks the Buccos not only will make this their 18th consecutive losing season, but will continue to stay below .500 for another two years.
In relief, The Amazing Kreskin wants the ball, even if it’s crystal. The Pirates didn’t return messages to see if they would give it to him.
