OK I'll try, although it really is a minor matter. RKM suggested that we give Vlad Guerrero a shot to work his way back to the team. I stated that to me it was like revisiting the signings of the Alomars, Griffey Jr. and Manny Ramirez. All productive players past their prime and not worth it IMO. There is nothing Manny did in his short time with the Sox to impress me and he was gone from MLB the next year. If you think a .420 OBP in 88 PA was worth it I don't. Not worth having a fight over.
