I guess I have to say it again. The Rangers have zero (read zero) interest in Manny. They do not want him. It's that simple.
Mad.......I understand that you have the hometown information but I am looking at the bigger picture. I will say it again, too. Hicks is hurting for cash right now and is looking at total values of contracts rather than yearly. The NHL lockout is lurking for next year and that is going to cost him a lot of money. IMHO, they don't really want either of them but Manny is cheaper and he has a little history with Hart.
What it boils down to is that I think that the Sox might give Texas enough to make it happen. Not that Texas wants either player but the lesser of 2 evils ($$) might make it happen. Boston knows that the time is now and that Nomar would like to go out West.
True, and the hometown information has discussed this for awhile now. I just don't see it happening. The Rangers have been adamant about it not happening, and they are one of the few teams that, for the most part, let their fans know what is going on.
