In an effort to make newcomer David Wells feel comfortable with his new team, the generous ownership of the Red Sox decided to award him a ring.

"I just hope there's not cubic zirconia in mine (ring) because of the whole ball fiasco. I'm going to take mine to a jeweler to make sure it's real." -- Jodi Mientkiewicz' husband Doug, who along with Pedro Martinez, has no idea when or how he'll get his World Series ring

Peter Gammons Chat Wrap

Jeff (Boston, MA): "Hey Peter, what do you think about the way the Red Sox players have handled their championship- especially the more colorful personalities...especially Damon. I have always enjoyed the dirt dog mentality of last year and dont like the celebrity ego's that have shown as of late from some of these players. Your thoughts?"

Peter Gammons: (4:00 PM ET ) "I think it's a legitimate concern in one or two cases. However, as long as Jason Varitek and Trot Nixon are the leaders of that team, I don't think it is a huge issue. Johnny Damon has certainly become a rockstar, but I don't think it will effect the way he plays. In fact, there was a noticeably cool reaction to Damon's announcement yesterday."
