I've had this curse going all year that any time I trade a pitcher they blow up in their last day on my roster. It's happened about 5 or 6 times so far this season.
Well...last night was Todd Jones's last day on my roster. I'm Gameday from mlb.com and staring in disbelief as the curse continues and then suddenly there's no guy on 3b. Having watched a lot of Gameday games I knew what happened the moment they put it up there that Lowell made the out but it was not a pickoff play and just smiled.
Thank you Mike Lowell for breaking the 'Curse of the Going Away Present' with the ol' hidden ball trick!
