More Fodder For The Rev: David Ortiz Says Manny Is Gone
Update: The Boston Herald says Seattle is also a team Ramirez is interested in going to. Sure, just like the Angels are pursuing Paul Konerko and Carlos Delgado. It's called negotiating leverage...
The fact remains that the Angels are one of few teams that (a) is allegedly acceptable to Man-Ram, (b) is able to take on Man-Ram's contract (especially with the recent confirmation that the team isn't on the hook for the dreaded luxury tax in 2006, and possibly not for 2007 either), and (c) can offer Boston a 1B/OF and/or CF with an expiring contract, a Major or Minor league MIF (Kennedy, Izturis, Callaspo, Aybar), and a young starter (Saunders, Bootcheck, possibly Shell), or possibly a bullpen arm (Donnelly, Woods or Yan), while saving them money.
