In A Nutshell......

Michael Silverman of the Herald summed up where the Red Sox are right now on this 18th day of November, and then a word or two from me.....and this is in addition to our number one concern...signing DMatt...

"Among the unfinished business is finding a right fielder, shortstop and second baseman. Free agent J.D. Drew remains the top candidate in right, as is Julio Lugo at shortstop. Dustin Pedroia could be the guy at second base, or it might be someone completely off the radar.
There also is need for relievers (Justin Speier and Danys Baez are of interest) and a backup catcher (Todd Greene and Eric Munson), while there also is increasing chatter about Manny Ramirez receiving trade interest from other teams."

Peter here, and yes, with Manny being so affordable, relatively speaking, and he IS, there are a growing number of teams that would love to have his potent bat in their lineup. May Theo and company wait until there is an offer that they simply CANNOT refuse, and then think about it, long and hard, before acting. And yes, the other needs Mr. Silverman pointed out are right on the money. So much to do. And you know what? We get to sit back and watch it happen! Enjoy Saturday, everyone. That's what they're there for! And thanks for reading. As always. And forever.

May Theo NOT act like the Panicky Steve Phillips of other Legendary Bad Trades:

Theo? Be Prudent!

Never trade for a ball-slapping, Blue Lip Gloss-wearing SS/3rd Baseman;

#2-AFTER ALL THIS TIME?

It's going to have to be a pretty sweet deal for me to accept a Manny trade. Of course the FO does not care what I think, but I'll keep talking anyway.
