Throwing some wood on the hot stove
Have you heard the latest buzz about the seemingly dead Manny-for-A-Rod, Nomar-for-Ordonez blockbuster deal? According to several fan message boards, including sonsofsamhorn.com and bostondirtdogs.com, the official team sites of the Red Sox, Rangers, and White Sox all changed their flags at the top of their sites within an hour of each other at about 2 a.m. today, removing images of the aforementioned players. Spooky! Conspiracy! What do you think is going on???
Who cares?!!!! Go Patriots!!!!!!!
Is it April 1??
I think it gasping for straws, but nonetheless intruiging...The Rangers did have Arod at one point on their page, and contrary to a few posts on here, the Sox page has changed. It is now Perdo, Schilling, Ortiz, and Wakefield...Clean out your browser cache...
Enough, Is Enough
Isn't it obvious that David Ortiz is the best looking guy on the Sox and that's why they added him??? Where is the respect for the PATS, let's worry about this stuff after the superbowl!!!
FIRST OFF...GO PATS!!! AS FAR AS THE RED SOX GO. THIS TRADE IS GOING TO HAPPEN. TOO MUCH TIME AND EFFORT WENT INTO IT FOR IT NOT TO GO DOWN. a-ROD WILL BE FLIPPING IT OVER TO MILLAR, O, AND DAUBER. AS FAR AS YOU NITWITS WHO THINK THIS IS JUST BY CHANCE....THINK AGAIN. NO TEAM/ORGANIZATION WOULD REMOVE THEIR MOST MARKETABLE PLAYERS FROM THE BANNERS. AS FAR AS NOMAR GOES...NOMAH WE ALL LOVE YOU. CAN U PLAY THIRD?

if we play 'strawberry fields forever" backwards we might get some more clues
If, in fact the trade is on again, this could just be a subtle sign of things to come. I agree that the reason they ended discussions in December was so they could negociate in secret to get this done. Trading 2 perennial all-stars for 2 perennial all-stars is not a bad thing, although I would miss Nomar greatly. If it happens, it happens.
Did anyone hear that Paul McCartney was killed in a car crash and was replaced by an imposter? He's barefoot on "Abbey Road," you know. And I don't know what website Kevin is looking at, but the banner at redsox.com does not include Nomar or Manny. I checked it out first thing after I heard. There's Pedro and David Ortiz and Tim Wakefield and...bad photo...Schilling? I like the Pats, too but a trade of this size will always garner more interest than any other team
It does seem suspect, yet could also be a coincidence. Either way....LET'S GO PATS!!

For those of you who are seeing Nomar and Manny at the top of the sox homepage - refresh your browsers. Its Pedro, Wakefield, Ortiz and Schilling now.
