ANOTHER Manny trade...

Postby Trot Nixon » Fri Feb 03, 2006 8:44 pm

This is getting tiring, now the deal is something along the lines of.....

Manny to the Angels of Los Angeles California, which is part of the OC, which near the ocean (yup thats the team name)
for
Santana, Figgins and 2 prospects (Wood and someone else)


Whoaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, Angels for some reason shot this down (damn) But anything that would bring Wood and Santana to Boston would be GREAT!

What do you mean "for some reason" they shot it down.

Angels are giving up alot there, even if it is for Manny.

I realize this was posted at ESPN.com, but this has bostondirtdogs written all over it. No way anaheim makes that deal, even for manny.

the rumor started in the LA times.

Why would boston leak to LA paper?

It seems more likely that the LA times got the rumor from the local team, not the team on the other side of the country.

This deal looks dumber than the Clement trade rumor that I read.

i was being sarcastic. This trade seems heavily in favor of the sox, and trades like this tend to pop up over on that message board. Like i said, no way this is legit. the angels arent that dumb

The Angels are not trading their prospects. The Times isn't the most reliable source either. The OC Register does a better job reporting the team.

The times is known for creating a lot of hypothetical situations.

Stoneman refuses to trade Santana and Wood. I also don't see the Angels trading Figgins. He is the catalyst of that team. I wouldn't call him untouchable, but the Angel consider him to be the MVP (he and Vladdy tied for team MVP).

If they do decide to trade one of their prospects or Figgins, they will most likely be alone or with some throw-ins. No way in hell do the Angels trade Wood AND Santana.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

I don't think the Sox really want to trade Manny, they just want to pretend they are trying.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.
