Silver Chalice VenturesI've written in the past about Fenway Sports Group and its not-subject-to-revenue-sharing money. The Red Sox are not the only team getting in on the act:
The Chicago White Sox are stepping up to the plate in the digital media arena.
If David Glass were serious about making the Royals a winner he'd rebrand the pharmacies and sporting goods sections of every Wal-Mart store "Royal-Mart" and give Dayton Moore a billion dollars to play with every year.
Well, not the Dayton Moore part.

Yeah, there could be literally dozens of dollars in that.

It took about a hundred years, but the avant-garde art movement Dada (“Only a Bad Harvest Can Save Us”) and the Surrealist poets (“Everything Is Analogous To Everything Else”) have finally triumphed.
Anyone who’s seen the alleged movie “The Silver Chalice” will know what I mean by that; those who haven’t are in for a harder time, as Paul Newman, the lead actor, (reportedly and very believably) bought every copy of the thing and burned them all.
I can only assume that other possibilities (How about Edsel Marketing? Perhaps [insert favorite Windows joke here]?) involved copyright snags.
The real question, though, is whether the name was picked by Ozzie Guillen or Kenny Williams.

“if only David Glass were serious about making the Royals a winner”
Now that’s funny. Excuse me while I go beat my head against a wall.

Craig, your response cracked me up. Dozens of dollars may be an overstatement.

IF MLB was serious about making the Royals and Pirates competitive…
AND they believed money was the reason they weren’t competitiive…
They would institute salary caps/floors.
Note I don’t say that these things ARE true…

IF MLB had a cap/floor…
WOULD that have stopped Dayton Moore from signing Jose Guillen?
