First baseman Doug Mientkiewicz has the ball that made the last out in the Red Sox world series win. The Red Sox organization wants it to put in their team museum. And Doug won't give it back. He claims he wants it for "sentimental value," and then adds, "But I can be bought. I'm thinking, there's four years at Florida State for one of my kids. At least."

Come on Doug, I think that ball will be worth a little more than 4 years at FSU! A ball from the 1975 WS just went for 113K. And don't you want your kids to aspire to a slightly better academic institution? Maybe I shouldn't ask... ben
