Liam Hendriks of the Chicago White Sox admits he uses a tarot card reader to help with his game. I'm obsessed with this!
Few could have foreseen Liam Hendriks blowing a save Sunday aside from maybe his tarot card reader Rubi, who served up some sage advice for the White Sox closer.
“Stop worrying about trying to live up to expectations. Stop worrying about trying to do this. Just go out there and be you. Go out there and be pitch by pitch. That’s when this stuff happens.”
Blown saves are rare for Hendriks. It’s only happened nine times since 2018, when he first started using Rubi’s services after his wife saw an Instagram post about her on Sarah Hyland’s feed.
“My wife ended up reaching out to Rubi. She wasn’t expecting a response and she had a response, straight away. We did a reading middle of August, I think,” Hendriks explained. “We went through some things and she told me I needed to make a change with certain things with my agent and stuff like that. We ended up changing agencies. A week later I was in the big leagues. A week later I was in the big leagues. A month later I was starting the Wild Card game.”
A year later Hendriks was in the All-Star game. Two years later he was in the top ten in Cy Young voting. Unsurprisingly, his relationship with Rubi has only grown.
“We’ve been using her for manifesting everything ever since. We spent Thanksgiving with her two years ago. They were over Christmas. They’re now part of our family.”
I love that he's talking openly about this. Read more below!
