Nope, sorry it was on WFAN, not the most reliable of sources. Just a big rumor. An interesting one, though. The Sox would still have a hole in the outfield, but it's clear what they're doing: Trying to take care of some of the "too much" payroll flexibility after '04 by sending away Nomar and Trot.

LOL....that is more accurate in my book than most of Peter Gammon's predictions!
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.

Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
I hate that trade option more than anything. I already don't like the thought of losing Nomar, but Trot too? Those two guys are Mr red Sox in my mind and I wouldn't be able to get into it as much as I did this year...it would be like watchin what everybody thinks the Yankees are, just a collection of players with talent. I would be disappointed. Besides, why would 3 teams trade nothing but shortstops and outfielders? It doesnt seem like there is any tremendous overall improvement anywhere in collective terms of payroll and talent, not enough tomake the deal worthwhile or possible anyway. No way this happens.
Rest in peace Mitch Hedberg. I name my fantasy team "Buoyancy of Citrus", in your honor.
