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. SheeshI 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.
Transmo I can understand your reasoning but how can you not be excited at the thought of Maggs in a Sox uni?
We're talking about one of the premier OF in the game today. It may be a long shot or whatever but the thought of Maggs patrolling leftfield for the Sox really excites me.
