Manny Ramirez

Sign him! Its pretty clear by now that signing a phenom pitcher is probably not going to happen. With that said we need to start thinking about symbolic victories rather than real on-the-field victories. That's why we should sign Manny Ramirez. He'll be a terror in the clubhouse and awful on the field, and though his bat will still be productive, his real value will come in the fact that his signing will be obnoxious to all Red Sox fans. Its either that or signing Jeremy Bonderman and wishing for the best. Sign them both for all I care. I just need something to write about.

I usually agree with you, but this time, you're WAY off.

Sign Manny Ramirez? What, is Barry Bonds unavailable? He's equally good with the bat, equally good with the glove (now you can see the sarcasm beginning), equally good to his teammates, equally reliable, and equally honest about steroids.

Oh, there is one difference: Manny's the only player in the history of sports who went from bald to ridiculously long hair after using steroids.

Yeah, I don't actually agree with my own stance, it sounds duplicitous, but what else is there to do these days?
