How about this story from the NY Daily News today that claims discussions are underway for the Expos to play a certain number of home games at Fenway next year. Is this another NY fantasy story, like Pedro’s sore shoulder? How come no one in the Boston papers has run with this? This could be another way for the Red Sox ownership to raise some money, getting some of the gate when the Red Sox are out of town.
This is the ultimate dilemma. Of course fans want the Red Sox to win the World Series, but the dilemma is be careful what you wish for because you might get it. And if the Red Sox played the Cubs in the World Series, one of those two franchises will be permanently and forever altered. One of them will never be the same. So remember, while winning is the ultimate goal. If you’re a Sox fan or a Cubs fan, it carries a steep price tag. Life will never be the same.
