    Manny Would Approve Trade

    MLBTradeRumors.com:

    Red Sox outfielder Manny Ramirez said today that he'd approve a trade if the team can reach one. The implication is that Ramirez would not require additional compensation to waive his no-trade power, but that's uncertain.

    The quote:

    "If they can get a trade, I'd approve it. If they can't trade me, then they will simply have to inform me by the end of the season that they won't use the options and we'll go separate ways."

    Notice how Manny doesn't mention the possibility of his '09 option being exercised.

    I wonder if people would get on Ramirez if he did some of the crap here that he does in Boston.

    So we give away Dunn and Arroyo so we can let Manny go in the offseason for 2 picks that we'll get anyway if we let Dunn go? or we keep an aging Manny who's numbers have fallen 3 years in a row.

    No thank you.
    Go Gators!

    Righthanded bat with power.. every year that is what everyone says we need and now that Holliday and Ramirez's names are being tossed I think both would be huge increases to this offense, Holliday especially.

    Boston wouldn't probably want a huge return for Man-Ram since they did put him on waivers a few years ago and no one claimed him. Plus the altercation he got into with a team repersetative and his constant "Manny Being Manny" antics.

    Holliday is another story. He is signed pretty cheap and he is still considered pretty young. With his high percentage both average and ops he would demand some top teir prospects.

    Ramirez is 36, hugely expensive, and most importantly a free agent. Additionally, I am about a bajillion percent sure that long term, he wouldn't have interest in playing here, and most importantly, I'd have no interest in him.

    He's one of the few guys in left field that has truly game changing defense. His bat is obviously still good, but only about as good as Dunn.

    Basically, he's older, more expensive and worse than Dunn. Toss in a valuable chip in Arroyo (or a roughly league average starter), and this is a trade that serves no purpose except to make us worse now, and later. It's about as bad a fit as you could find.

    I don't want Manny, I want something in return for the free agents of the Reds, salary relief of Arroyo and the pitching from Boston. Never know what this years "young" pitching for the Reds might do next year for sure, plus more trading chips for Jocketty if needed.

    Boston is the one that would not do it, not enough going there way, maybe they would with the relief pitching combined with Dunn and Arroyo. Maybe Griffey if not Dunn ? Take their Manny problem and then let him walk as a FA at the end.

    I don't think Boston intends to be a seller in a very close division race...not this early at least.

    If Dunn goes, I would sign Ramirez for two years at $30 million in the offseason. In a heartbeat.

    You know all those arguments about how good a hitter Dunn is? There should be no such arguments about Manny. Great right handed hitter. Still. For two years in left field for the Reds? Absolutely. With the antics. And the bad defense.

    Don't like his attitude? Red Sox seem to be doing ok, even with the attitude.

    Guy is a winner, knows how to play in pressure situations, might like playing for Dusty and helping the Reds start achieving more.

    It probably won't happen, but I'd do it for sure.

    Are you saying that offering Boston Cincinnati's finest in exchange for a couple month's of sour grapes Manny and some prospects would make Boston a seller?
