No Stadium For You!With all the political capital spent by the Red Sox ownership group, you'd think it would pay off in a little 'back-scratching' by those currently in charge of the federal government. Wrong, Fund Raiser Breath! It looks like all those big donations to the Democratic Party might not pay off after all. Word is that the feds are poised to block any attempt by the new owners of Boston's AAA franchise (read: the NOG) to build a waterfront stadium in downtown Providence, Rhode Island.

Mes swings like he's trying to power the city of Phoenix with a wind...
