What's Tim Wakefield's phone number?
Just kidin... but I think it's a bit much for him. Strange for Theo to throw that much cash at hm though Surely he didn't get the NTC. One of Boston's best moves was having that clause in Manny's contract that he gets a NTC if any ther Red Sox does. That way when they're negotiating saying they can't include a NTC the player and his agent know it isn't political BS used as a bargaining chip, they know they actually can't use it - or won't use it, however you wanna look at it.
I heard on the radio he did not get a no trade clause
Not to change the subject, but after this year doesn't Manny become a 5 and 10 Guy thus essentially having a NTC. If this is true it might make sense as to why they are trying to move him.
