He'll Just Have to Win Another One

Whether you pitch in the postseason or not, you still earn a ring if you pitched in the regular season and your team wins the World Series. I'm not sure how proud of that ring you would actually be, and you'd probably be better off selling it on ebay. But that's what happened to Julian Tavarez, who proudly owns an 07 World Series ring. At least, he thinks he does.

When Tavarez was designated for assignment earlier this month, he forgot the ring in his locker. The ring is worth $20,000, so maybe I wouldn't be surprised if it turned up on ebay. Tavarez believes the Red Sox will play nice and mail him the ring, but I still don't see how you forget something like that.

Hopefully this story just fires Tavarez up to win another one, that he can then forget in his locker when Milwaukee doesn't re-sign him next year. Ah, who am I kidding. At this point, I'm just hoping to finish over .500.

If I won a World Series ring, I think I'd have it in a vault somewhere. Or at least at home. Certainly not in my locker.
