N.Y. Daily News: Guru helping ballplayers see the light

Meet Azra (The Azra Phenomenon) Shafi-Scagliarini…spiritual adviser, “holistic life skills coach”...and look for The Azra Phenomenon to become Chlorophullofit Kid’s love interest on Planet Carggg in the next issue of LSH!

Ballplayers who are looking for the keys to the universe should look elsewhere: Shafi-Scagliarini says she’s no conduit to the cosmos. But she often has “feelings” about people that randomly come to her. During the middle of a conversation, she’ll unexpectedly tell someone they are going to have a baby or take a trip to a far-away land. In 1999, she advised Oakland’s Tony Phillips to sit out a game in Toronto, a warning players still talk about. He ignored her advice and broke his leg, ending his career.

Mets pitcher Duaner Sanchez says she described incidents in his life and details about his family the first time they met. “The first time I spoke to her, I was like, ‘okay, who are you to know this about my life?’” he says. “I got scared.”

If I were a pro athlete, I think I would spend more time with groupies and less time with gurus, but that is just me I guess.

"Giambi, widely criticized for never using the word "steroids" as he repeatedly apologized during a Yankee Stadium news conference, nonetheless was the only player embroiled in the steroid scandal who even remotely took responsibility for his actions. "

Matt Lawton doesn't exist?
I think this lady is using a shovel, but if it helps someone relax and play better, so be it.
