. . . The Sox didn't trade Pedro.


Losing Manny does not make this team better in 08. Don't kid yourself.

On paper, you may be right. But I think he is trying to point out addition by subtraction; you cannot underestimate the make-up of a team and how it affects their play.

Eh.

Stuff like this is silly to take a look at.

We'll win the World Series if we get to the Playoffs and get hot.

I don't necessarily believe in addition by subtraction. With Nomar there was a definite problem with infield defense and O-Cab provided great infield D and ended up hitting pretty well with Boston. Manny is a better hitter. The Sox biggest need was not a left fielder, it was a bullpen arm. They did not address that.

I think that losing Manny Ramirez is not a big deal, the guy is a great player but with his attitude the team losses more than what they get if they keep it...
