I'm with Gmogmo. There should be a forum for Hot Stove talk. Just set it up and tell me where it will be .
Anyway, I think that no one touches Manny. Way too expensive. If someone takes him from the Sox, They could sign Colon and a solid outfielder, and still save $$. If Manny is still on the Sox come Spring Training, it sort of sets up an uncomfortable situation, since he now knows for sure that management wants no part of him. Irrevocable waivers is a very strong statement.
