If only I didn't cut up all my Credit Cards! (Probably for the best)

I'll get my New Era cap with the patch soon enough though, and send out a christmas list to some people though. Surely pick up some stuff when I'm down in florida after christmas as well...

At least I'll be getting the SI mags for free...I have a post office box in the States and I started randomly receiving them in the mail a couple years ago. Never got a bill or anything, but they just keep on sending SIs there for some reason. I throw most of them out, but I'll be sure to keep these babies!

On a related note, anyone have an extra copy of the Globe/Herald from Monday that they want to send my way? I'll paypal you for it + shipping!

Why do I get the feeling that the Papelbon cover will be the most sold!

I just remembered something from 2004 (and the MFY years before that). There will be people on ebay with full copies of the papers.

With any luck, there will be so many auctions, you can slip in and win one for a few bucks. Check it out.

I just did an ebay search for "globe sox" -- and 420 auctions came up.

There are some with the Globe and Herald for $10 - with the buy it now button.

There are also some with the 2004 Globe.

Or you could get a sheet of Yankees 2007 World Series and ALCS tickets. Known as phantom tickets, they are sent out to season ticket holders before anything is known for sure.

I collected these for a few years -- I have a lot of Red Sox WS tix from various years they never played.

Yeah, saw them on eBay Monday....that's what I'll end up doin' probably if no one here has any.

Also Papelbon on Letterman tonight, Manny on Leno Friday and Flo on Conan Friday.

Sorry, Tim, just mailed my copy of Monday's Globe and also NY Times to our hosts and blogmasters. I was only able to get the one copy of each, and since I am not a collector (no more space in my house for anything), I sent them off to our well-deserving hosts!

The Reds picked up their options on Adam Dunn and Scott Hatteberg. The Mets picked up options on Moises Alou and Damion Easley today.

You can get the Herald and Globe on line for $2.50 and $4.00 respectively with no shipping costs rather than auction on Ebay!Go to their websites for past issues. Go Red Sox!!!

Speaking of SI from SI.com's Hot Stove Preview.

What They Will Do: Hold. I'd guess that in the wake of his World Series MVP, the Red Sox will be willing to apply the precedent they established for Jason Varitek, and give Lowell one more year on his contract than they might give him otherwise. I'd also guess that if Schilling goes -- and he's more likely to leave than Lowell -- the Red Sox will target some sort of No. 4 starter in the free-agent market. Both of these are perfectly defensible decisions.

Doing something drastic like going after Alex Rodriguez, on the other hand, is neither particularly defensible nor particularly likely.

Big Papi 7th player to receive a perfect score from Elias Sports Bureau

Boston designated hitter David Ortiz became the seventh player to earn a perfect 100 in the annual statistical compilation issued Wednesday by the Elias Sports Bureau, which uses a formula players and owners negotiated in 1981.

Ortiz, who helped the Red Sox sweep Colorado in the World Series, ranked first among American League DHs in plate appearances, batting average, on-base percentage, home runs and RBIs in 2006 and 2007 combined. Last year, Travis Hafner topped the AL DH rankings.

The only previous players to get perfect scores were New York Yankees first baseman Don Mattingly (1987), Baltimore Orioles shortstop Cal Ripken Jr. (1991), Chicago White Sox first baseman Frank Thomas (1995), Houston first baseman Jeff Bagwell (1995), Red Sox designated hitter Manny Ramirez (2002) and St. Louis first baseman Albert Pujols (2006).

Globe had like a $10 shipping cost to Niagara Falls, New York. Plus the $4 for the issue. I got mine on eBay for 99 cents plus $3 shipping.

Now to get a 2004 issue and plaque them sons of bitches!

Great Onion link from Nix33. I also like the Onion headline "Yankees–Red Sox Rivalry Running Dangerously Low On Storylines". :)

Some people forget not everyone lives in Boston. Or even New England.
