Was it Damon that needlessly dove to cut off a Manny throw or vice versa? I could never get that right. :-S

Cashman says it's not true.

Asked about Monday about a report out of the Dominican Republic that the Yankees are on the verge of signing Manny Ramirez, general manager Brian Cashman said: "Not true."
We called the Impacto Deportivo report "extremely doubtful" last night and unless Cashman is playing coy that looks to be the case. New York may indeed end up with Ramirez, but there's been nothing to indicate that they're far enough along in talks that a deal could be completed this soon.

Cat calling kettle black.

Who was the last player the Cubs actually developed successfully without f'ing him up other than Soto?

One of the funniest plays shown on ESPN. I laugh every time I see that play.

Manny did play pretty decent defense in LA this year, though.

Prior and Wood did great 'til Dusty killed their careers, so you can't blame that on the minor league system, and Zambrano's been doing pretty well. Theriot, Marmol, and Marshall have done decently in their short time up. Hill did very well till he Blassed out in '08.

Also, the phrase is "pot calling the kettle black".

Changed the thread title since the rumor was disproved. We can just keep the Manny spec in here though. Once Teixeira signs, it should heat up pretty quick.

I'll give you Zambrano even though he is in the process of blowing up. Theriot, marmol and Marshall is the best your team could produce in the last decade? So besides Soto and Theriot, how many position players are homegrown?

I've heard people say Cat calling the kettle black. Although Pot sounds better.

Well, Ramirez and Lee had their best years in Chicago and came over in trades, so while not exactly homegrown, they're not Yankee-style superstar FA signings. Really, the only thing close to a superstar FA signing in the last decade besides Soriano is Fukudome. After that, you have Moises Alou and not much else.

There's the Yankee-types who build their teams from FAs, there's TB-types who build their teams from within, and there's Cubs-types who trade away all their prospects to get MLB-ready players. Look at this year, even. They traded Ceda for Gregg, traded Gallagher/Donaldson/Murton/E. Patterson for Harden/Gaudin, and were about ready to trade Vitters+ for Peavy.
