Guh. $20-40K each? For 85 people? That's a decent outfielder right there.

Which would you rather have, a blue teal diamond in your ring or another outfielder? Be serious!

They look like Liberace's doorknobs.

I love those things. The gaudier, the better. I saw the Anaheim Angels World Series ring in person (former scout had one at a CBL game) and it was hefty. The only thing missing from this ring is a mini-laser that bounces flashy colours off the diamonds to attract even more attention!

Anyone know why Eva Savealot has taken particular interest in these rings?

Never mind. She's dating Carl Pavano. What the hell has happened to the world when the lowly Florida Marlins win World Series titles and date Hollywood starlets?
