Nine bucks and we don't get to see a game? Nine bucks to go and see how much some fans are devoted to the Boston Red Sox (like we didn't already know)? Nine bucks as a clear demonstration of an additional "revenue stream," which can be sucked out of loyal RSN citizens?

I am going to spend the nine bucks tonight - for a box seat (actually three of them) at Pawtucket. That's where you ought to be as well. Grady's ghost ain't there and some good baseball is.
