Is that true? If so, I love it even more. I personally thought it was nice of Hayashi to dress up for the auction.

If, say, A-Rod hits 75 next year, McFarlane is once again going to look pretty silly. If you're going to buy a piece of baseball history, at least buy something like, say, Johnny Vander Meer's second no-hitter ball. For that kind of money, I'd want some staying power.

He's got the dough to piss away. Plus, he's said he pretty much does it to rub it in to his brothers, in that loving brotherly way. I can't argue with that.

I thought the best part of the auction was when the auctioneer was teasing a dinner date with her to lure potential bidders. And then she totally turned on those who didn't pony up. Quality entertainment.

I don't know how reliable the source was but from what I heard the expenses of the whole thing was 700,000, so if that was true then they came up way short.
