Could Manny Ramirez really be traded before the July 31 trading deadline? Manny appears ready to leave.
“If the Red Sox are a better team without Manny Ramirez, they should trade me; I will not object. I don’t have any preferences. I could choose a team that offers me the best conditions or one in the chase for the postseason. I don’t care where I play, I can even play in Iraq if need be. My job is to play baseball…I’m tired of them. They’re tired of me.” – Manny Ramirez
Sean McAdam of the Providence Journal reports that Manny has drawn interest from at least four other teams…
A three-team deal with the New York Mets and Pittsburgh Pirates (I heard it on WEEI’s The Big Show):
Bay is a complete hitter who would be able to replace Manny right away (maybe not with the same production, but close) and for now is a cheaper option. He also is capable of hitting .300 with a .400 OBP and at least .500 slugging percentage. Would this deal work for you?
Would Jason Bay be enough in return for Manny Ramirez?
