My take, for what it's worth:
1) Manny is a cancer, and if we can move him, great.
2) Nomar does not want to play for the Sox. This isn't about Mia, it's about Nomar wanting to go back to SoCal.
3) That said, if you can swap a bad contract for a bad contract, I'm all for it.
4) It's not worth it if we have to pick up a substantial amount of Manny's contract, unless Arod knocks off a similar amount of money off his.
Yes, it would suck to lose two All-stars for the price of one, but since I expect (and perhaps Theo, too) that Nomar wants to leave, then I say get what we can now. However, I also think that if we can't work it out on our terms than try to win it all this year with the two of them and get the draft picks for Nomar.
I trust Theo to do what's right. (I'm not sure I've ever said that about a Sox GM of late!)
I'm back. Sorta.
Do not boo Johnny.
