Manny's Future

Postby Coppermine » Wed Sep 07, 2005 10:15 am

With an unsuccessful push to aquire Manny Ramirez before the trade deadline, and his obvious unhappiness in the Boston clubhouse (didn't Kevin Millar basically say Manny was "un-fun?" for not coming up with any cool team slogans [by cool, i guess he means "cowboy up" or growing his hair to the point of hobo-dom]) do you think the Mets will try to pick him up in the off-season? It looks like they're going to free up quite a bit of salary with the inevitable departure of Piazza to the AL, and all of that disposable income for the Mets could make up a pretty good offer to Manny.

Or they could always just try to coax Mo Vaughn out of retirement, either way.

If we take over Manny's salary I feel like we shouldn't have to give the Red Sox much in return. And all this talk I hear of Milledge, Petit and others is wrong.

If I felt we were just Manny's bat away from making the playoffs an having a chance of getting to and winning the World Series, I could understand it more. But we aren't.

Well, we need to hold onto Milledge and Petit.

Thankfully Kamir's not a huge star over in tampa bay, but he's still young. Meanwhile zambrano gets demoted.


After getting swept by the Braves, I'm down in the dumps.

Join the club.

And I just got pulled over and ticketed tonight. I'm REALLY not happy. Getting swept by the Braves just piles on the anger. :-C

Manny will be much cheaper to acquire in the off-season. I definitely see this happening!
