This is just my opinion, but I think the "prize asset" for FSG is the one that will realise them the biggest profit, generate the biggest fanbase and increase their profile the most. In the long term by all accounts, on a worldwide basis - that would be us.
Aye fair enough but Henry LOVES Baseball, its his passion.
incidentally, this made me laugh, a blog entry from some footy fanatic
"John W Henry loves baseball
Liverpool are playing Everton today in the FA Cup semi-final. Nobody cares about the FA Cup anymore, especially the Liverpool owner John W Henry who has gone back to America to watch baseball rather than see his club in action today.
Henry, who looks like a blockbuster-bad-guy, decided to fly back to American and watch the Boston Red Sox play instead. I don't even like Liverpool and this has pissed me off, not because he is clearly saying he cares more about the Red Sox more than he does about Liverpool but because he likes baseball more than football.
Baseball is terrible. I can understand why Americans would go to watch the games, they last about a day which allows them to eat numerous hot-dogs, nuts and drink copious amounts of beer. However as a sport, it really is terrible. Skinny person throws ball, fat person on steroids hits ball, skinny person catches ball, fat person on steroids tries to run, repeat. The only other countries that play baseball seriously are Cuba, Mexico and Japan and that's only because they hate America and want to punch them in the face.
Liverpool fans will be delighted to know that Henry being there inspired the Red Sox to a thrilling victory. They had 12 Rs 16Hs and 0Es - sounds like a classic. I have absolutely no idea what that means. "
