“No Manny in Boston leaves an emptiness in the Yankee-Sox rivalry,” says Alex Belth. I have to agree. I’m going to miss the lug. Funny that he meets up with another rivalry legend, Joe Torre. Is this where they’ll all end up? A-Rod, Jeter, Youk, Dustin, Beckett, Joba in La-La Land in 2017?
It’s not a sad day for a Yanks fan, but I can’t say I’m happy. Is it because the Sox did well in getting back Jason Bay? Probably. But maybe there’s more to it.
Update: The Yanks have sent The Attorney General to DC for 22-year old AA reliever Jhonny Nunez.
