DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS
A Sox Suit: For Love or Money? - Jan. 11, 2006
If Sox win the arbitration ruling on Minky's baseball, will they sell that off too?
"The Red Sox insist their case isn't about money, even though the ball could be worth several hundred thousand dollars, according to sports auctioneer David Hunt. It's about their civic duty to Red Sox Nation. "From our perspective, it is very important that an artifact with this much history be part of the club archive and be available for fans to experience," Lucinda Treat, chief legal officer of the Red Sox, told the Boston Globe. Yet when the Red Sox had an opportunity to preserve another important piece of World Series history--Red Sox manager Terry Francona's lineup card from the deciding Game 4--posterity took a backseat to profit. The Red Sox sold the lineup card and other World Series mementos in a December 2004 online auction run by Major League Baseball. "Clearly it's hypocritical," says baseball historian Glenn Stout, co-author of Red Sox Century. "The fact that they'll take other items like the lineup card and sell them for money shows that at some level that's where the interest is."
