Gimenez tweeted back that he believed that Astro's relief work would bring some St. Paddy's Day luck to the team.
It's got to good luck if @astro_dpsdog pee's on your bag right!

Not so. Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester posted six innings of P's himself — as in perfect — against the Rays before exiting the game in the seventh. Anthony Carter and Joel Hanrahan pitched perfect innings to set up a dramatic — by spring training standards— ninth inning. The perfect game bid was finally broken up in the ninth after Jason Bourgeois's infield single behind second base. The Sox won 5-1.
If it's good luck you want, stick with four-leaf clovers.
