I was driving home from work today and Brian Sabean was on the radio. One of the hosts brought up Ol' Boston when they were talking about what a great job Sabean did and how he was getting glowing reviews in the press. They both ripped on Gammons a little. Then the host read this from BG's column:

Every year Magowan gives Sabean and assistant GM Ned Colletti a budget in the winter and spring, but he holds some money for when he needs it. Magowan had a partners' meeting after the All-Star break when the Giants opened in Seattle. Sabean and Colletti gave their report and told the owners what they needed and the costs. When Magowan walked by Sabean at the park, he told Sabean he had the $4 million if he thought they had a chance to win.

Sabean first said, "He must have been there". Then he started laughing and said that what BG described never happened. Then they proceeded to rip on ESPN and BG some more. I was laughing so hard I was having trouble driving.
