    manny says he'd waive his no trade clause if sox can find a deal...

    man i know he's a bit flaky but he would look great in a mets uniform right about now. that would be the best outfield bat we can find. and he shouldn't be as expensive as you'd think he should be, cause there's no chance in hell that he's a red sox next year.

    He wont be traded before the deadline. They aren't stupid. They will weaken that lineup by ALOT. They will do what the Yankees did with Sheffield. Pick up the option at the end of the season and than trade him.

    yeah....you're probably right. just wishful thinking. but his value will be less at the end of the season, especially since everyone knows he won't be staying there.

    best fit? idk about that. best fit for manny would really be an AL team that wants to use him as a DH.

    the only way the Sox could make the deal and have it go over decently with the fans would be to work out a three team deal with the Rockies, where the third team gets Manny, Sox get Holliday, and the Rockies get prospects.....

    Holliday may not have great numbers away from Colorado but the dimensions of Fenway should help offset that.....the problem would be who the third team is....Manny would be better off in the AL but if Boston sent him to a team they could see in the playoffs they would be very stupid...and Manny still plays a very decent LF.

    So, it would have to be an NL team...and the team that makes the most sense...would be Arizona....Manny would help them take control of that division.....

    Imagine a Mets lineup that begins with Reyes, Beltran, Wright, Ramirez? That would be pretty nasty.

    I heard the Rockies are not sellers because of their latest run. Maybe Texiera though?

    you know...even though Manny is flakey....I think he may know exactly what he is doing....and Boras does too....Manny would be better served if Boston does now renew his option, because then...at what 37 years old...Manny could try and get a four year deal for around 80 mil....which I really think he can get...this guy can be penciled in for 35-40 HR over 100RBIs and an AVG over .300....

    Boston doesn't have the nuts to trade him away. They've put up with his nonsense for years, and he hasn't been benched for any of it for even a minute. What makes people think they now are just going to trade him?

    SI.coms Jon Heyman believes the Phillies have the best chance of pulling off a deal for Manny Ramirez.

    The Phillies and Red Sox are talking, but its unclear who else might be involved. Pat Burrell for Ramirez would make some sense, and Burrell has spoken in the past about waiving his no-trade clause to play for Boston. It's hard to imagine that the Red Sox would take Geoff Jenkins back, and the Phillies wouldn't want to put either Burrell or Ramirez in right field anyway. Heyman also says that the Marlins have been in touch with the Red Sox regarding Ramirez. However, a deal with Florida would be quite a long shot.

    A Phillies official told ESPN.com Tuesday night persistent reports that the Phillies are pursuing Manny Ramirez are "false" and said the Phillies have "nothing doing" with the Red Sox involving Ramirez or any other player.
    Per Jayson Stark.
