Do you think the Sox will really be significantly better subtracting Nomar and Manny and adding Arod?
Losing two top 15 offensive AL players and replacing with one, I just don't see the real benefit.
I think this is more about knowing the won't be able to keep Nomar, so they may as well shore up Arod. In the meantime, they can get rid of the Manny headache.
I just don't see this deal making them better next year. It should help keep them good for many years, though, so it's probably a good one.
Anyone else's thoughts on what it would mean for the team next year?

Just my opinion...

Jivedude, while I love your pic, I have to correct you here. There's no way they'll be "saving money on this deal.
Nomar will sign next year for a whole lot less than Arod is signed for.
I see the Sox doing this only to get rid of Manny, and it seems a damn shame to me that they'll get rid of Nomar just for the sake of getting rid of Manny.
The better thing would be to go all out this year, try to win it all with Nomar, and hope that that would convince him to stay.
I just don't see paying Arod 25 mill, plus paying some of Manny's contract being worth losing Nomar AND Manny.
As a Yankees fan, I love the deal!
