re: Manny - for sure. What's the risk? He's gonna suck? Cut him. Be a cancer in the clubhouse? Cut him. Caught cheating again? Suspended.
Upside? Middle of the order bat (hopefully) taking pressure off of Montero and Smoak. You can still play Carp in LF, Smoak at 1B, Montero at C when Manny plays so the only one losing ABs there is Olivo - which none of you should mind. Not saying hes a savior or anything if he works out but it'd be a good bat to have around if it does.
"But what's the point if we wont contend this year?? Just play the young guys until 2013" -- Well, weirder things have happened and you just never know, no point in writing off 2012 already.

No way does Zdueriencik bring in Ramirez! I personally don't want him on this team either teaching these young kids bad habits. No thank you. Z said he may add a chip if anything at all. I seriously doubt Ramirez is what he had in mind.

Pay to send Manny to CA and Bradely back to TX? Agreed!

I would LOVE Manny and/or Vlad -- of course, assuming neither of them saw time (except, perhaps, in an emergency) in the field. But who knows if either of them would sign in Seattle.

Another little tidbit I shared over at another site was that I visited with Jack Z a little bit and got his take on Hector Noesi, and he said half the Yankees front office was split down the middle on giving him up for Campos. A lot of their guys did not want to give him up. I asked who does he look like the most in terms of projectability. Jack said most likely a number three, maybe even number two. He said he was a lot like Pedro Astacio.
He told Cashman that he had to have a pitcher coming back that could pitch right away to fill the void of Pineda. Noesi's name came up and he gave Cashman a list of players that would be available. He agreed to Campos because he was still about 3 years away. So in all actuality we did not have to include Campos in this deal to get Montero here. Hope some of you found this interesting.

Very cool and interesting tidbit, sexymarinersfan.
You know? I was never upset about losing Campos, myself. I honestly figured he was the most expendable of our Big Four, and we had signed top 16-year-old talent Victor Sanchez last season, anyway.
I just wish I knew how to pronounce Hector Noesi's name.
Is it "No-AY-see"? Or "NO-ess-see"? Or some other way? Does anyone know for sure?
As far as Manny Ramirez goes...no freaking thanks. We have enough miracles to work out from this roster.

Jack Z pronounced it No-WES-ee. However he also pronounced John Jaso(Jaa-so), rymthes with asshole. Lol. Sorry. Couldn't figure out how to spell that one out. So I'm not entirely sure either are accurate.

I'm not sure name pronunciation is a Zduriencik strength. I've heard him butcher several. Until recently, he pronounced his new hurler as "Knee-oh-see" every time I heard him interviewed.
