Somebody Knew the Tribe Was Gonna Suck


Pam Lauter has forecast the future for hundreds of clients at her weekly Psychic Readings. But the one she remembers the most vividly was former Indians owner Dick Jacobs, 10 years ago, persistently asking about his team. "I told him, It's gonna be a hit-and-run, honey. You're gonna be in and out of this in a few years," she recalls. "He said, ‘Don't tell anybody I was here.' I said, You haven't paid me nearly enough to keep me quiet." Since 1992, Lauter has used gems, cards, and her "spirit guide" to make predictions. She also claims to have picked up on imminent heart attacks and cancer scares. "After 14 years, I'm still amazing myself," she says. "When I stop amazing myself, I'll quit."
