What About Four?

The Dodgers have bid 2 years for Manny Ramirez, and the Yanks would have to bid at least that with a higher annual salary. But what happens if the Dodgers decide that they are willing to go three years? Assuming they Dodger will match Yankee single salary offers, should the Yankees consider offering Manny four years, if it gets to that? He'll probably still be a great hitter in four years, but do you risk that long a commitment to such a famous malcontent? Is it worth it if the Sox land Marky T for 8-10 years, considering what Manny would bring to our line-up? Something to think about over a glass of scotch.

It's just a hunch but I think both Andy and Manny will play for Mr. T next season.

Not impossible. But then Marky T better be playing for us.

Raven King said...

You guys should pinch hit for Pete Abraham.

(sipping scotch. With pompus british accent) mmmm...yes. quite. I could see it.

Raven King said...

Red Sox fan "sipping" scotch instead of wolfing down the whole bottle?
Wow, Fred, you're a rare breed!

Raven King said...

If the Yankees really want to have Marky T in their lineup next season, they have to make the move NOW.
I don't want to see Marky T and Youk the Troll wearing the same ugly uniform.

Fred, Coincidentally, that's how people at my brothers school talk.

Could I think about this over a glass of wine instead? A nice pinot noir, perhaps? O.K. I've thought about it. The Yankees must not sign Manny. There. Now I can finish the wine.
