    I once pondered a similar trade, though it was a three-way that had Dunn going to Boston, Manny going to Baltimore, and Tejada coming here. Anyone think that's remotely plausible?

    And much more of a talented baseball player.

    Wow Manny has one ugly range factor.
    Think maybe it has a little to do with that big ugly green wall thats just 300 feet away? I imagine that thing takes away quite a few outs that Manny could get to if it werent so close.

    No thanks. Cincy doesn't need the problems he brings with him. UNLESS we can gag and handcuff him between games so that he can't create any problems.

    First of all, there's no need to call that wall "ugly". I happen to love that wall. And, there probably is something to the stats not doing a good job of taking the wall into account, and he's less of a problem at Fenway just because the wall allows him to play very shallow and take away some hits that way, and limit doubles by having a decent arm and a quick release. Manny rates about the same as opposing left fielders at Fenway, and much worse than them on the road. Which is why I believe the Red Sox haven't been able to trade him to this point, because he is more valuable to them than most of the teams they could trade him to, they get to turn him into an average left fielder for half their games.
