The Boston Red Sox: Defenders of the 2004 World Championship!! "Whoever plunges into his experiences with the momentum of hope, will remember so that he cannot forget." - Soren Kierkegaard.

The Red Sox reached an agreement on a two-year, $3 million dollar extension with Doug Mirabelli the other day. The contract will double if Mirabelli is used as a starting catcher. Why would Belli stay in Boston for $1.5 million a year when he could get much more elsewhere?

-"Doug's experience in the New England area - his love for his teammates and from playing in Boston - made him decide to stay there,'' agent Dan Horwits said last night from Los Angeles. "Just his experience with winning the World Series and the joy of celebrating that win with his teammates helped convince him.''

Hmmmm. Refreshing, isn't it? Too bad other people didn't feel this way.
