    I agree that resigning with Tampa Bay is a definite possibility.   I wish that he had just decided to serve his suspension last year.  It really didn't accomplish anything for him by retiring and leaving his team without him for the remainder of the season.

    I really didn't believe so many would take this seriously.Maybe the Florida sun has dulled my New England sarcasm a bit.

    Although despite what others think (hatred) I wouldn't mind if they gave him a chance. When you look at what is still out there he still maybe the best of the lot.

    The Red Sox would never resign him.  I would imagine that if the Rays don't resign him he could end up on many other teams.  Especially in the American League.

    Sox have just signed the late Donnie Moore as closer. The move was intended to take the pressure off of Daniel Bard. Sox have also indicated they are close to coming to terms with Nick Esasky, now finally cured of vertigo.

    Would that also include doing all of the things that you are bashing Lester, Lackey, Bucholz, Beckett for allegedly doing? It would be fine with you in Manny eats too much chicken, drinks beer during games, and plays video games on his IPod. Why did you chastize the above players for being aloof, undisciplined, poor teammates, and out of condition and then turn around and give Manny a free pass for doing the same things?

    As always you are 100 percent illogical.

    In response to "Re: Sign Manny": [QUOTE]hankwilliams Ellsbury will play it on the easy big waiting for FA contract hop, so forget the notion he will cover more than part of his own position.  Offer Manny minor league contract for minimum and if he peforms well enough then contract with him for 1M if he starts and finishes the season on the active roster. If there is a soothing point to your posts about Ellsbury, it is that you have been patently wrong about Jake every time.  Your character slam in this one is just as surely erroneous as all your others.  It's almost pleasant to watch you make stupid statements about him and then see you get slapped in the face by your own words and attitude. Posted by SinceYaz[/QUOTE] There were rumors of racism against Indians posted last summer, and while I am usually the last one to appeal to that kind of silliness, in this case I can see no other alternative. His paranoid hatred of Ellsbury is otherwise inexplicable, and is certifiable.

    Jim,

      I did think you were being sarcastic and almost pointed it out.  But by that time, the idea had born a life of its own.  

      Glad you made it clear.  Always better from the source.

    What you fail to recognize is that Softlaw is not a bigot but is a troll. How many times do you need to be spoon-fed the definition of a troll. Softlaw probably has a black man in his family, has relatives who are liberal and he accepts, but what he loves to do for entertainment sake is to come to this forum and pretend to be a different person so that he will be entertained. He loves seeing posters take the bait. He comes here to stir the pot and giggle at the responses. Sadly too many fall for the act / routine.

    I guess you missed all his anti-Semitic (ask katz), anti-native American Indian (ask Jake), anti-goodoleboy (ask Wake), anti-gay (too many to list), anti-divorcee (Vtek, but not McCain or Newt) and whatever posts.

    He's a troll and a bigot.

    Yeah, I knew you were being sarcastic. THat's why I tried to have fun with it myself. I was wondering how long it would take for someone to lose their grip on this thread.

    And Manny is sounding very contrite now, even going so far as to be open to a minor league deal. I'd take a shot on him for an incentive laden $1 million deal. It could literally bail us out of our RF hole and I'm sure he'd love to play for a ring. Interesting....




    In Response to Re: Sign Manny:
    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Sign Manny : That is right and I had forgotten one of the bIg concerns was wether Manny would even change from RF to LF. Sort of like the Valentine/Nomar, ARod/Jeter, or the Reyes/Hanley thing... in the end they all moved and were better for it.

    as unrealistic as this sounds i really think it would be a decent idea. granted he could be a role player/platoon guy. On top of that i think he sincerely feels bad about how he left. if we can get him at league minimum or a little bit more whats the risk?

    I'd sign Manny after Valentine tells him will be kick his a2s up and down the dugout if he acts up and by the way he gets $1 million for 1 yr and thats it.

    I suppose we all have our limit as to what is acceptable/unacceptable behaviour and which of the unacceptable cannot be forgiven.

    For me, doping wouldn't stop me from bringing an athlete back...they served their sentence, let's move on.  In Manny's case, I wouldn't want him back because he dogged it, not because he doped.

    2008 ... when he was a mere 24 years old, you mean?  He hit .280, stole fifty bases  - which only tied him for first place in the AL ...  that terrible year?

    or 2009 when he batted .301 and only stole 70 bases ... that terrible year you are throwing in my face???

       ahhh so sweet, thank you for making my point.

    now, 2010 ... here he's a real bum.  Four broken ribs that kept him out of all but 18 games ... was this the season you think he was somehow lacking?  REALLY?

        And last year ... one of the sweetest of years ever ... that year?

      or would you like to go back to 2007, when he burst on the scene in the playoffs and helped us win a second World Series in three seasons?

       Hmmm...

       You really made your point with me, hank. 

       Your finest hour ... thanks for only making it clear that Ells has been a positive part - with growing influence - of the Red Sox ove the last four seasons.

       I have an idea.  Why not try to disprove gravity?  I know ... it's hard to do when you are always falling down ... but, maybe you could sound as intelligent at that effort as you do with your Ells bashing.

       You have me singing and laughing all at the same time.  Keep up the good work.

    The second-to-last year wasn't all that bad -- 15 HR, 72 RBI, .264 BA. Not great, but OK for the era. The last year always frustrated me because as I recall, he had a good spring and started strong. He had a good April -- 3 HR, 16 RBI, .291 BA (18 HR, 96 RBI pace). I was feeling good that he'd have a decent year. But then he slumped and got hurt in May and was basically done.

    The teacher from Springfield is just :

    KIDDING
    TROLLING
    STIRRING THE POT
    DOING DEVIL'S ADVOCATE
    BEING CONTRARY
    FOOLING AROUND

    HE IS NOT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY.
    DISREGARD ALL THAT HE SAYS FROM NOW ON.
    IT IS ALL 100% BS.

    I said that Pedroia was playing a joke on Papi. It was documented in the press repeatedly. You seem to ignore that distinction. Instead you are calling Pedroia a liar when he is not. I know that it is complex but damn it you are a teacher and should be able to understand things like that.
