O’s Baffle Sox, is Manny on the Way?

Manny-Ramirez.jpgAs rumors swirled about the possibility of the White Sox making a waiver deal for the Dodgers’ Manny Ramirez, the South Siders went down tonight to the suddenly “pain in the neck” Orioles by a score of 4-2. Look at the bright side: we didn’t blow a save and the Twins once again fell to the Rangers as The Good Guys remain 3 1/2 back.

So, what about the Sox obtaining Manny? I say, why not?
–When you have a chance to go for a division title, do whatever you can to make it happen.

–Manny can be a huge problem in the clubhouse, but there’s only five weeks left in the season.

–He can carry a club when he’s hot.

–Without another offensive force that would help make up for the injured and sagging bullpen, chances for the postseason are slim.

–The prospects we’ll be giving up probably won’t be blue-chippers. The money? It’s only money.

–I think we’re all getting tired of watching the failures of Mark Kotsay and Andruw Jones at DH.

To me, it’s a no-brainer. But Manny has a no-trade clause so the decision is ultimately in his hands.

Manny vs. Ozzie. It’s worth the money just for that. I’m sure both would like to be teamed up with the other. I’m hoping it happens because he revived the Dodgers when they acquired him … and they had less talent than the White Sox do now. That, and they may keep him at DH next year.
