Sox-Phillies-Rangers Rumor

Postby Transmogrifier » Fri Dec 12, 2003 12:48 pm

What do you think of this? It's just a rumor, not sure it's validity. But it's creative.

Sox get: Arod, Abreu
Rangers get: Rollins, Manny
Phillies get: Nixon, Nomar
I'm back. Sorta.

Certainly creative and interesting.

Link?

Obviously losing two good, character guys like Nomar and Trot would hurt but there's no denying Arod is an upgrade over Nomar and Abreu is an upgrade over Trot.

Sounds a little too "blockbusterish" for it to be realistic.

VERY interesting though ;-D

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.

as a Braves fan I would not like the fact that we'd face Nomar so many times although I'd love it as a baseball fan in general.


Man..Abreu AND Arod in Boston... now that would be awesome.

LOL....that is more accurate in my book than most of Peter Gammon's predictions! ;-D
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.

This is pure bunk - take a look at Abreu's contract sometime to see why Philly will never get rid of him.

Way too far fetched to happen.

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.
