Massive Manny Miasma Motivating Marlins?

manny.jpgSo you've all heard the news by now. Manny goes to Florida to play 15 minutes from his house in Pembroke Pines, The Red Sox get Jason Bay, and John Grabow. The Pirates get Jeremy Hermida and a bunch of 5 tool kindergartners with tons of upside. Well according to Gordon Edes, there's still no deal in place so cool your jets, hermano.

The deal makes sense for pretty much everyone. The Marlins get a couple months of happy Manny satiated on mango flesh and his own bed and the Sox pick up most of the tab. The Sox replace a large percentage of his numbers and put another live body in their dreadful bullpen and the Pirates get to be in the newspaper.

Will they/won't they? Frankly whenever I hear any "tentative deals" for Manny I wave my hand at the TV and make a fart noise but this one seems to have more legs than past rumors.

If only that chick hadn't removed the Jason Bay song.

Massive Mangina Making Manny More Moody

Some Say Marry Money, But My Brother Says Big Boobs Matter More.

Bay Better Bring Big Bat

Okay CTC, now do one with the following rhyme scheme:

A, B, A, B, C, C, A, A, B, C, A, C

I prefer up up down down left right left right b a start.

Also, "5 tool kindergartners with tons of upside"? Billy Beane is jealous.

BTW, I still don't understand this deal from the Marlins' standpoint.

It's a two-month rental for Manny. It's an all-or-nothing deal. If they don't win the World Series this year, it's a shit trade.

Also, it may just be the Red Sox keeping Jason Bay away from Tampa Bay. BAYWATCH!

Sometimes when I'm mindlessly copying and pasting stuff in Excel I pretend that I'm doing some sort of variation on the Konami Code, so I have to go really quickly or I won't get the 30 lives or whatever.

Maybe Manny might make Matt materialize.

If Bay doesn't come to the Red Sox, maybe they can somehow get Matt "The Bison" Kemp. As you may recall, he is called "The Bison" because he is tougher than a robot made of nails.

Too much whiskey at the game last night to make funny alliteraious* statements

*not really a word

let’s get to the bottom of this Hermano stuff, brother.

I'm gonna go ahead and say it's a shit trade, then.

I am going to apply Jiegel's Konami-code methodology to all aspects of life, starting with sex.
