I think I'd be careful about who I just gave something like that to. If I were Mientkiewicz, I'd donate the thing to the Hall of Fame. If the BoSox want it, though, let them pay for it. Right and wrong aside, it would easily fetch six figures on the market. I think it'd be selfish if the guy just lets it sit in a deposit box, but for the team to just expect him to hand it over on his way out of town is kinda ignorant too. Let the Hall have it.

I hope this, McGuire's 70th, and Bonds's 73rd all get mixed into a huge vat of other used balls that carry no signifigance whatsoever, just to create some sort of strange Twilight Zone scenario where Mientkiewicz, Todd McFarlane, and whoever got the 73rd all wind up going insane.

Originally posted by Big BadMy favourite quote was when Mientkiewicz said that the ball was going to be his kid's college fund. Um, isn't Dougie M making 3-4 million a year already?
This was actually said as a joke, but was never reported that way. I heard both him and his wife interviewed on the radio on Friday. They both said that he has no intention of selling the ball to put his kids through College. Hell, he doesn't even have any kids. ;)
