1. If the Sox trade or are thinking of trading Manny for prospects, major league talent, or some combination thereof, are they being stupid?
2. If the Sox don’t trade Manny, and put up with his (supposed) antics to get his production, are they going "soft" on a guy who can’t be trusted, or creating trouble for the clubhouse?
3. If the answer to (1) is "yes", then can the answer to (2) also be "yes"?
4. If the answer to (1) is "yes", and the answer to (2) is "yes", then how can the Sox do anything right?
