And a quick note to John: The winning fan won't be a Red Sox supporter. Since people will be coming in through a bunch of gates simultaneously, the Orioles can be a little selective in their targeting.
But if a Red Sox fan were to walk away with the loot, it would have to register as the dumbest moment in Orioles history.
And that prompts this: What is currently the dumbest moment in the club's history? My guess is it probably came within the past dozen years.
Some will say it's when Peter Angelos took ownership of the team – but that is revisionist history. Angelos added financial stability and a local owner to a city and franchise that craved it at the time.
Here are three to stir the debate, in no particular order: The signing of Albert Belle, the trade for Glenn Davis and the acceptance of Davey Johnson's resignation.
