This deal probably wont happen, but its kind of interesting to see the Marlins come out of nowhere as a potential trading partner for the Sox.

Bay and Manny's numbers this season are pretty similiar. The Sox would be getting a young guy that's six years younger and who might actually sprint to 1st instead of job. People are saying the Sox have no shot without Manny, but the effort he's giving, I don't think they have much of a shot with him. Time to cut your losses Boston.

In addition they also are at the very least guaranteed to have Bay next year as well.

This is Manny's last year with the team one way or another.

Exactly. I really hope this deal goes through.

Angels will probably take it regardless, however.

"Earlier on ESPN’s Baseball Tonight, Peter Gammons said, after having talked with people close to the Red Sox, he is convinced that ‘this thing with the Marlins’ and Ramirez will happen.

As Gammons pointed out, the Red Sox won a World Series after letting go of Nomar Garciaparra, they won a World Series after letting go of Pedro Martinez, and they believe they can win a World Series without Ramirez.

Later, also on Baseball Tonight, Buster Olney said, ‘The divorce is coming, and both sides realize that.’"

i hope he does get traded. Im kind of tired of Manny's ****. And think it will be a nice blow to his ego if he gets traded to the marlins.

Nah. Dont want him in our division, even if we are done this year. Then I gotta look at his nappy ass hair that hasnt been washed since he entered the league many many years ago too often.

Plus the Red Sox get Bay and that pisses me off too. If the Pirates werent willing to deal him to us then i dont want anyone getting him. F*ck that ****.

Red Sox get Jason Bay
Pirates get Jeremy Hermida or Josh Willingham

Terrible if the Pirates don't get more out of that, but they really should get Hermida or Josh.


I've read some things that says the deal is just about done. Just rumors though, but still interesting.

Pirates are also getting 3 additional prospects in that proposed deal. Hermida is just the centerpiece to it.

Here is the latest according to mlbtraderumors.com

8:50pm: Will Carroll believes the Commissioner's Office has been informed of a Red Sox-Pirates-Marlins trade even though the teams haven't agreed on the prospects. Here's how he sees it:

Marlins get Manny Ramirez, one prospect (BOS), and cash (likely Ramirez?s remaining salary)
Pirates get Jeremy Hermida and three prospects (two FLO, one BOS)
Red Sox get Jason Bay and John Grabow

The Pirates will probably kill the 3-way deal. Its been damn near impossible to wrestle Bay away from them. They want a lot back

pirates owner vetoed braves trade with them and we were giving them some pretty good players. so he may do it again.

yep, Lillibridge, Jones, and two pitchers from AA. Maybe Hermida is more appealing to them though, but I find it hard to believe they'll find a deal better than the 4 players the Braves were willing to give up.

I dont really know who the other prospects would be that Florida is sending in that offer though.

Would be sick, real sick. It'd bring a lot more excitement to the Marlins and we've had plenty of that going around lately.

I would keep it considering there is a pretty good chance that there is going to be another player with the last name ramirez on the Red Sox.

isnt this going away from what the marlins have been trying to do? seems like their main focus is to get young players. it would help them press wise but i would rather keep hermida. sweet deal for the sox if they pull it off though
