Wouldn't it be great if Steinbrenner or some other rich Yankee fan bought this to destroy it, like the Bartman ball?

Mientkiewicz didn't just fall off the turnip truck. I say, good for him. I'd bet if it was a pop up or fly ball to anyone else on the field, they'd want to keep it themselves, too.

This is now being refuted by Doug M. He said that Shaughnessey sandbagged him for the interview.

Now that the Curse is over, I guess Dan needs to create new controversies.

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.

Yeah, Shag would never do something like that. He also wouldn't set up himself to profit off of the Red Sox past misfortunes. (image removed)

Yeah right.

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.

My 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. ;)
