We've all seen how garish World Series rings are, but did you know the runners-up get pretty impressive rings themselves?

Former Ray and current Cubs pitcher Matt Garza reported his 2008 American League championship ring stolen from his Fresno, Calif., home and it's listed as worth $30,000, according tot he Fresno County Sheriff's Office.

According to the Fresno Bee, the burglary happened between the afternoon of Jan. 26 and the morning of Jan. 31.

It seems the Rays are popular victims of crimes. Last spring the house rented by Tampa Bay's Evan Longoria, David Price and Reid Brignac reported $56,000 worth of property stolen, including Longoria's AK-47 rifle. Police arrested three suspects in that robbery in August.
