It's dumb!  Invite him to throw out first pitch, give him and his fam a suite with all the food and drinks they want, let him sing "Take me out to the ballgame"...all good ideas to try to make up for some of the grief he's had to endure, but a ring? Come on, I'd sell that thing so fast, how embarrassing to be awarded something you had no part in earning.  I remember the year after Edgerrin James left the Colts they won the Super Bowl and they sent him a ring "here look what we won as soon as you left!" ridiculous.  Players, managers, coaches, executives who help run the team, yes they deserve rings, NO ONE else. 
Agreed.  When I first read this story, I thought it was beyond bizarre.  I mean I feel terrible for the man and all the hate he got, but if anything, he may have cost them a World Series.  He certainly didn't do anything to earn one.
