Re: Tejada for Ramirez/Clement?
Regardless of whether or not the Orioles "need" Manny Ramirez, they should make the deal, and not look back.
Just as Red Heeler noted in his trade proposal--which I actually believe is a good idea--the O's don't have to keep Ramirez. They could then turn around and peddle Man Ram to the Angels for a package based around Orlando Cabrera
and Ervin Santana, with Manny Aybar waiting in the wings for the Angels.
All told, this scenerio presents a win-win situation for the O's.
"I have just been more than a little suspect of all the trades since the Willy (Scott Williamson) cash grab. That one left such a bad taste in my mouth that even a 1985 Dom Pérignon couldn't cleanse it." -- Creek14
