Sub-story: Charlie Sheen lost almost $30,000 on that ball. Is that "winning?"

I guess this was bought by Boston's version of the tool who owns Harry Caray's so he can blow it up and serve it in someone's food.....

It's only stupid money if you notice that you no longer have it!

Dave Kaplan wonders where Leon Durham's ball is.

Do you think it was a Mets or a Sawx fan?

Yawn.

So is the last ball of the 2005 season on Reiny's dresser?

And which WSIers here have the Konerk GS ball and the Pods walkoff ball?

I'm sure Kap has held it in his hands, along with a lot of other Cubs' balls.

Yeah, I went there.
