Something that makes me believe the sun will rise tomorrow

It should be noted that Pavano went to the Yankees for what one Red Sox official called "the right reasons -- family (his mother and fiancée). We actually offered a little more money, but his mother had bought the Yankee hat and his fiancée really wanted to go to New York. That's fine. That's good. We offered Brad Radke more money and more years, but he preferred living in Minnesota. For us, it's not good. In the big picture, it's very good. I just wish we had them both."

This is from Gammons latest column. It's starts with the Mulder trade but segues into this. Pavano and Radke turned down less money to play where they wanted to. It just gives me a little hope that it isn't always about the money.
