As long as they don't play the Red Sox, they'll have a shot. :lol: :lol:
If you want an experience, go to a Jimmy Buffett concert.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

2002. And sense then, with this current team, they just don't get it done. 0 - 8 against the Red Sox . . . they need to figure something out if they are going to be one of the best regular season teams every year.
the hit and run is as good as any religion around this time of year . . .

Sources close to the situation told ESPN.com's Jayson Stark on Tuesday that Atlanta Braves first baseman Mark Teixeira is headed to the Los Angeles Angels for Casey Kotchman and minor league pitcher Steven Marek.

I think part of it is that other teams know that the Sox are now trying to get rid of Manny so that if there are talks about him, then the other teams are willing to hold out until the Red Sox just give in.

So. . Yanks get Sexson, Marte, Nady, Pudge . . .and the Red Sox are looking to get rid of Manny! :D That's for saying you hate the Yankees!

I have never been a Farnsworth Fan. He has been doing a great job. .still don't trust him in a big spot. . but watching him interviewed right after the game. . :( He was teary eyed. . choked up. . Girardi got choked up. . Cashman was choked up. . .they really liked they guy and Farnworth wanted to stay in NY. It was kind of sad. :(

But the Red Sox don't have to give in...He's under contract...he is talking about not playing the rest of the home stand....what teams want is Boston to pick up the 7m on the contract....and if thats the case....a few teams would be in the running....he doesn't play...fine his sorry a$$...i WAS a Manny supporter...but i'm tired of his act...i heard now...Florida...Dodgers and a possible 3 way with someone else and Piisburg with Bay going to the Red Sox!!!....i don't think teams are just sitting there knowing the Sox have to trade him..because they don't!!

My point is that other teams don't have to give up anything, they can just say "No" to the Red Sox and wait until the end of the season and if the Sox don't renew the option, then they could swoop in and get Manny if they need him.

disagree!!!..the Red Sox have the player for teams that want to win now. and if they don't get what they want...he finishes the year....the Red Sox offer arbitration...he refuses...becomes a free agent and the Sox get 2 draft picks ...2 of the 1st 35 picks which isn't a bad thing!!

Do you really think that the Dodgers are one of those teams (as rumored)?

First of all Manny is not going anywhere.

Secondly, Manny AND Varitek could both be gone next year. That would be 5 of the top 35 picks.

Third, yes about the Dodgers. Sox want Kemp. Never happen.

Fourth, notice how much money the Yankees have free next year in their new park IN Manny's old neighborhood. Manny gets his 100 million dollar deal.
the hit and run is as good as any religion around this time of year . . .

Yes!!!!.....but according mlbrumors.....7:33pm: Gordon Edes of the Boston Globe characterizes it as "strong interest" from the Marlins but not a done deal. Jon Heyman also has the Fish in the lead. Will Carroll has some kind of Bay/Marlins multiteam deal in the final stages. Jim Molony says the talks are real but a Manny to Florida deal is unlikely. Meanwhile, Manny keeps talking his way out of Boston.
