Sox-Phillies-Rangers Rumor

Call me crazy, but I think it is a good trade for all 3 teams, somehow in my mind all 3 improve.

Boston- AROD and Abreu instead of Nomar and Trot. Makes sense for Bos when you consider that they do not want Manny.

Philly- Nomar and Trot instead of Rollins and Abreu. Makes sense when you consider that PHI would love to trade Rollins especially if they get Nomar.

TEX- Rollins and Manny instead of AROD and an empty void. I think TEX would take a young SS like Rollins and be happy.
If I were TEX I would want a minor leaguer or two as well, after all you are dealing AROD for a head case in Manny and a young SS that is no AROD.

Interesting trade though.

Nope, it'd be AROD and Abreu instead of Nomar, Trot, *and* Manny. Ahhh no. :-t

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.


Trans.......Where are you located? Did you hear it on the radio or did you watch Beef and the Bad Dog on YES? I heard that as well. It makes a little more sense than some of the others out there.

Help is on the way :-D :

From Rotoworld:

The Rangers are currently pursuing Brett Tomko over any other free agent starter. The Rangers want to add at least one and possibly two veteran starters to compete with Chan Ho Park, Colby Lewis, Ricardo Rodriguez, Joaquin Benoit, R.A. Dickey, Ryan Drese, Mickey Callaway and Juan Dominguez for rotation spots next spring

That part I don't necessarily agree with. The Rangers are cutting payroll down to $70 million for next year. If the payroll had stayed the same, around $90 million, they could have signed some decent pitching. Colon and Escobar? Not great, but certainly better than what we currently have.
