I'm not too sure about that. How peaceful can it be with Mondesi?


there is a huge difference between Mondesi, who complains when he is not happy, to Manny Ramirez, who complians cus he woke up.


I agree that Manny is worse than Mondesi, but let's not forget that Mondesi is the one who threw a temper tantrum and left the dugout when he got pinch hit for. That's a little more than just complaining about not being happy.

Randy Johnson has never been loved by his teammates. He didnt make alot of friends with his shenanigans in Seattle. Not that i care. Performing is what matters, not the soap opera stuff.

You are right. Its a HUGE difference. One guy is a mvp who performs. The other is a huge burden to any team with his talent and salary.

lol..true ....

But I can't see ARZ picking up Manny's contract. Even if BOS payed half of it. (which would be stupid on BOS part)

Let BOS and TEX swallow those contracts. They got what they deserved. You don't hear LA bitchin' about Kevin Brown. Look what they got for there money ... .. ... and planerides. :-) nothing.

And toss Dreifort in there too..

I've got to agree. Arizona is trying to cut payroll why would they ever pick up Manny's contract? Schilling won't be that hard to move. Everyone could use an ace pitcher, not everyone could use a $20 million DH with a bad attitude.

Ok, I have to stick up for my boys. }:-)

When has Texas complained about Arod's contract? I've not heard any complaints. 3 years in a row, MVP numbers. The Rangers have not complained.

They should be complaining about the contract to Chan Ho Park, but they haven't complained about that either.

The fans are complaining, but fans everywhere are complaining, so that can't be used against the Rangers.

Sorry, just had to defend my poor, last place Rangers. Lol. :-b

What about Giambi and the NYY? Look, there was a time in the market when these type of contract were.... well, not normal, but at least a little more rational. 20/20 about the inevitable market correction is a tad silly.
I'm back. Sorta.

I was just pointing out that the Rangers haven't complained about the amount of money they gave in those contracts.
