I sure hope that comes with a contingency clause. Contingent upon them getting A-rod.

Enjoy this, boys, because I don't think in the history of professional sports in this country has a trade of such magnitude ever been comsumated. If this multi-team deal goes through it will be something our grandkids will be asking about. Wow, this is immense.

Does Maggs become a HOF in Boston?

For the record: I still don't buy this trade going down. Why would the Sox trade Nomar for a guy with similar salary, and can walk? I don't see it.
I'm back. Sorta.

Because Maggs is THE best LF on the market and since that's what they're going to need to replace Manny, that's what they're going after.

I'd say Manny/Nomar for A-Rod/Maggs is pretty damn even swap.

Just on a sidenote, if this trade happens then it's possible that 4 of my 5 keepers COULD be Red Sox. A-Rod, Schilling, Maggs, Foulke. Sheesh 8-o

I don't buy it. Sorry. Even Curt Schilling said it was a long shot (on the SoSH board). I could be wrong, but it seems to me that the Sox would want someone that could play more than one year.
