If you’re a Yanks fan and you want Manny to get traded, don’t talk about Manny getting traded lest he actually doesn’t get traded.
A closely related fact is that Manny never seems to get traded. This is why I believe Jon Heyman when he writes today:
"Talks picked up this week, but all things considered, folks who have
spoken to Boston are saying now it appears "less than 50-50" that
Ramirez goes anywhere."
Translated: In 2007 I have to watch Manny hit another 5 bombs and drive in another 4 bazillion runs in a three game series against my beloved Yanks. And I thought the holidays were coming early this year.
So, there you have it: Manny ain’t going anywhere. There’s not a chance we see Manny playing anywhere but in Boston next year.
