Would You?

Would You?

Want an Ace?

Would you trade Manny Ramirez, James McDonald and Chris Withrow for Cliff Lee?

Let’s not stop there.  Seattle sucks.  Their re-building is dead.

How about Manny Ramirez, James McDonald, Vicente Padilla, Dee Gordon, Chris Withrow,  Casey Blake, Xavier Paul and Jon Broxton for Cliff Lee and Ichiro Suzuki?

Eight for two!

Then trade an obscure player for Mike Lowell (the Red Sox will pay most of his salary).


  1. Suzuki  CF
  2. Furcal  SS
  3. Kemp  RF
  4. Ethier  LF
  5. Loney  1B
  6. Lowell  3B
  7. DeWitt 2B
  8. Martin  C


  1. Lee
  2. Kuroda
  3. Kershaw
  4. Billingsley
  5. Ely

Think that would make the Dodgers “odds-on-favorites” for the Series?

Drink the Kool-Aid!

Drink it NOW!

    Yes on all of the above. Looks like Russ is going to get at least part of the night off. Love the XMan but please. I would rather see Jose Feliciano playing LF and batting than Garrett[you should take up golf with that swing you have]Anderson.{No disrespect to us that are visually impaired}. Wow, I just heard Vin compare Jamey[not Jamie]Carroll to the gnat whom I called very davidecksteinish a few days ago. P.S. That is a good question? Who is the 3rd baseman in the near future? Like we really haven’t had one since Ron Cey. No Pedro was not a thirdbaseman.

    Our 3B of the future is Ethan Martin.

    Oh, wait….

    Why do I bother keeping your blog on my Google Reader? This is insane.

    Then there is only one possible explanation why you keep coming back:

    It is YOU who are insane!

    Now, I did not say I would do that deal (I didn’t say I wouldn’t either) – I simply asked the question.

    It may be insane, but there is some substance to three names in the deal: Manny, Lee and Ichiro – If the right deal came up, all three could be moved. Tell me what’s insane about that?

    This is the kind of post that bothers me. Your take sucks! You can have a take, but don’t suck or I’ll call you out.

    When you have no supporting facts and just say “That’s insane” you brand yourself as someone who is very small-minded!

    Have you ever been involved in a “brainstorming” session? Frequently, some of the most insane ideas lead to some of the best ideas.

    Most people are fearful that someone will make fun of them when they throw stuff out there.

    I understand the process and will continue to do so.

    If you want to stay “inside the box” by all means remove this blog from your Google reader.
