With all due respect Fenway, BS.

They committed to staying for the 100 yer anniversary, yet they've been quietly acquiring real estate in the neighborhood.

Once the centennial of Fenway Park is over, watch it happen faster than you can blink.

The real estate the team has bought, was that part of Frank McBankrupt's, Dodger owner, parking lot empire?

They will tip their hand IF they redo the lower seating bowl and the rumor is that is planned for 2009.

The smart money is that have quietly made a deal with Kraft to play in Foxboro while Fenway is rebuilt. Gillette was designed to be converted to baseball if needed.

But one other rumor lurks. This ownership will sell NESN to Comcast for 700-900 M (maybe more as CSN paid 500M for Fox Sports NE which only has the Celtics. THEN Werner and John Henry SWAP franchises with McCourt.

McCourt didn't own land in the Fenway area, his parking lots were just south of downtown and they are now owned by Rupert Murdoch.
