**MOJO** Periodic Table of the Elements Day 1

Sometimes, mojo needs to come from a simple place. And frankly, in the grand scheme of things, it doesn't get any simpler than the Elements. Today we draw mojo from two of the building blocks of everything in the universe.


Promethium is a rare earth element that draws it's name from the Greek Titan who stole the fire from the sky and gave it to man. It can not be found naturally on Earth, but has been found occuring in one of the stars in Andromeda. Certain compounds of promethium are vary useful, and hope to be synthesized into a portable X-Ray machine sometime in the near future.

Promethium is for our own rare #61, Bronson Arroyo, as he takes the hill versus the Blue Jays. Lets hope some of the fire from heaven finds its way into his pitches this evening.


Element #24 is a transition metal used in the making of stainless steel. Chromium is widely used in many production methods, is silvery white, and is incredibly hard.

Chromium is for our own hard to get out bat, #24 Manny Ramirez. May chromium help Manny and the Sox bling their way to another win.

(Special thanks to Empyreal for inspiration for today's mojo.)
