Sure, if you guys want to try and waive him again and get nothing in return.

Manny's a great player, but a rotation of Papelbon, Peavy, Matsuazaka, and Beckett if he ever gets his **** together for the next 10 years could be pretty scary.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Good news NYJets, Front Office held a meeting with season ticket holders and Peavy and A-Gon are in fact not going to be traded for Manny.

I'm sure everyone here can put two and two together with these Padres trade rumors for Manny when they also look at the other teams that are interested, Dodgers and Giants.

Dumb move. Nixon will likely get around 8 million in arbitration and no team will offer him that much meaning he'll probably accept it. While the sentimental side of me wants Nixon on the Red Sox, the rational side does not. We know Francona will end up playing him a lot with little regard for how well Pena might be producing. And with his defense eroding it makes little sense to have him strictly as a defensive replacement type who starts occasionally. And since its almost a lock Drew will be here, the Sox will have two pricey outfielders with a tendency to wind up on the DL for portions of a season.

The Red Sox did not offer arbitration to Trot Nixon. They did offer arbitration to Keith Foulke.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

What a busy 24 hours for the Red Sox.

Last night for sure I thought Manny was gone.

J.D. Drew signs for 70 million

Lugo signs for 36 million

Lester has stopped taking chemo treatments (THE BEST NEWS)

And Mannny probably won't get traded now.

I never understood the fascination with Lugo. He's a solid hitter but a liability in the field. Hopefully they know something we don't.

On the bright side, looks like we'll have a pretty solid lineup next year if Manny comes back.

Lugo
Youkilis
Ortiz
Manny
Drew
Lowell
Tek
Crisp
Pedroia/Cora
