Those of you who were here, please coach those who were not yet present as to the spirit, demeanor, hilarity and sublime passion that went into the original thread.
New Manny .... new thread. And keep it on topic.
No rallys......yet.
Love y'all,
Casey.

I find this talk about Kelenic comical. He's a 19 year old kid who hit .253 at Kingsport
and struck out once a game and people are talking like he's the second coming. Get real people. When you have a chance to get the best reliever in the game who's only 24 and give up Kelenic in the deal, you MAKE that deal. Stop with the nonsense.

#NeverForget

(Actually, I did forget. What was the deal? Or was this a FA thing or waiver claim?)

David Lennon says it was Mike Cameron or Cliff Floyd and Lastings for Manny. Apparently Red Sox wanted more prospects. They also tried to get the Rays involved:

What, you don't think the three headed monster at the GM position will work? It's a groundbreaking idea. Groundbreaking, I tell ya...

Manny for Justin Bieber, Christina Applegate and Lassie (surprisingly, even without opposable digits, the dog can hit).

Ah, good times.

Top shelf talent isn't the problem, it's the garbage that we surround that talent with.
