Re: Tejada for Ramirez/Clement?
Lets say this guys......I would not trade Junior for anything. he means a lot to the Franchise!! I understand all your points about injuries, payroll flexibility, etc.....But Junior brings a lot more to the clubhouse than games played.....(Please don't make fun of that last sentence). My point is if you can trade Wily Mo Pena and Felipe Lopez for Manny Ramierz and have Boston pick up the difference in Salary.....you do it.....If they offer Clement...You just pay him what he is owed....But Boston should eat some of that contract.....The Rangers did it with A-Rod...I live in Texas and they pay him 9 million a year.....well, either to New York or Alex....But anyhow.....If the Sox pick up that same amount? His salary is like 11 Million on the Reds books! With Clement making his last 2 years Salary of 3 years/25 million......you do it.....I don't care about Lester....I mean I do but make this a Baseball trade...
All-Star SS Felipe Lopez
20-40 HR Potetial OF Wily Mo Pena
All-Star OF Manny Ramirez
RHP Matt Clement
9 million a year for Manny's salarty adjustment
You do it.
Larkin SS (Just joking...you all pick a player)
RHP Rijo (Joking again....you pick)
I think it is a doable trade....and a Baseball trade finnally!
