Re: Tejada for Ramirez/Clement?
A few problems with the trade.
1. Junior would have to OK that trade and he doesn't seem very keen to move to AL East. And they can't really guarantee him a world series.
2. Clement and Reyes would seem to be iffy talent to blow up a third of your starting roster.
3. Given that the trade would be cash neutral plus we are trading for talent does that mean that anywhere we trade Manny we would be offering cash as well.
4. The contenders for the Manny signature do not seem to have the pitching talent. Granted the O's have Bedard but since they have acquired Burnitz they wouldn't be in the Manny hunt. That leaves the Mets which have farm system worse than the REDS.
