The JOBC Contest
The first person that e-mails me the correct answer at firstname.lastname@example.org will win a commemorative Greg Maddux 3000th strikeout scorecard and a t-shirt from the Just One Bad Century catalog.
Here's the question: On this day in 2003, the Cubs traded an infielder to the Rockies. That infielder would go on to become a key member of the 2004 Red Sox team that finally broke their long World Series curse. He hit 2 HRs against the Yankees in the ALCS, and then another in the World Series against the Cardinals. Name him.
UPDATE: We have a winner! Matt Brown was the first one to e-mail me with the correct answer. Mark Bellhorn was the ex-Cub that forever became a Red Sox hero during the 2004 playoffs.
We'll have another JOBC contest next Monday.
