yanks get manny
sox get sheff anf gordon
dodgers get manny and bellhorn
sox get kent, odalis and werth
mets get manny
giants get zambrano
cubs get flloyd
drays get patterson
sox get alfonzo, rusch, baez and cameron
i doubt any of these are very likely and the last one is a joke but i think he was showing that a deal for manny is possible to do. also, after phillips was done with his segment woddy paige said he knew why he wasnt a gm anymore. ZING!!!
The Sox make out like bandits in all of those. Trading Manny really isn't possible unless the Sox pay some of his salary or trade him to the Yankees; and we all know the Sox and Yankees wouldn't make a deal.
Anyway, as a Yankee fan, I wouldn't even trade Gordon alone for Manny, given his contract, much less a much cheaper and arguably better
this season, Gary Sheffield as well.
Again, I think he's untradable unless a. the Sox pay half his salary or b. they trade him to the Yankees for nothing but salary relief. And I think we all recognize that neither of those things are going to happen.
