Two Words

No controversy in Boston? Is David Ortiz out for a month or for the season? The Yankee fans already have danced around with visions of sugarplums in their heads.

Two words answer the need. And they don't have to trade a draft choice or Michael Bowden or anybody else.

Baggage? Of course, as much of life comes with baggage. Two words. The greatest (med aided) slugger of our times. Can he run? Can he still hit? Barry Bonds.

Wow! There's an idea. I'm not too certain it is a good one, but it is quite a novel one.

Isn't a more plausible answer for Manny to DH and Cocco, Jacoby and Drew to play the outfield.

Would Manny do it and save the wear and tear so we have Manny being the good Manny in Sept.?

The problem with Manny DHing is the loss of the 3-4 Batting order threat. Ortiz/Manny puts fear into pitchers and stops some Intentional Walks. Not sure Barry would play in Boston anyway. We have a lot more Media in Boston than San Fran and it's be harder on him.
Not that I don't like the Defensive upgrade in Left field though.
