SI Cover jinx

Finally, a stat about Sports Illustrated Covers where Michael Jordan doesn't hold the record. Craig Biggio has been hit by a pitch 15 times while Tiger Woods was on the cover of SI, but only 12 times when Jordan was on it.

No pitcher has ever been on the cover of SI and hit Craig Biggio in the same week, and Craig Biggio has never been on the cover.

No plunks so far in tonight's game, but an interesting play in the 7th inning. Biggio hit a dribbler up the first base line, which the pitcher fielded, threw to first, and hit Biggio with the throw. Sort of a pseudo-plunk, right? Ruled an infield hit, but should have been an error on the pitcher.

D'ya think he leads the league in pseudo-plunks too?
