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.

    I think the SEC will really want to make an example out of Cuban. If the trade went down in 2004, you can be sure that they (the SEC) have their ducks lined up against him. That’s four years of evidence-gathering.

    The Garnett suspension is one of the most pathetic moves I’ve ever seen by any organization. I am speechless.
