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.

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?



I'm interested in selling my youngest daughter into slavery as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She's a Georgetown sophomore, speaks fluent Italian, always cleared the table when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be? While thinking about that, can I ask another? My Chief of Staff Leo McGarry insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself or is it okay to call the police? Here's one that's really important because we've got a lot of sports fans in this town: touching the skin of a dead pig makes one unclean. Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves, can the Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame? Can West Point? Does the whole town really have to be together to stone my brother John for planting different crops side by side? Can I burn my mother in a small family gathering for wearing garments made from two different threads? Think about those questions, would you?

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. ;)

Farnsworth makes sense for Detroit with Jones being yanked from the closer role and Rodney being an adventure. I don't think Pudge is much better than Molina at this point, as calling a game has never been a strength.
