Maybe, maybe not. Here’s the thing, I’ve heard the Manny to Florida deal in about five different variations, and if you add in the variations from Will and John, it probably gets into the teens. My best source has it as (and this is somewhat simpler than others):
Mike Stanton (Low-A slugger), Ryan Tucker and Jeremy Hermida go to Pittsburgh
Jason Bay and John Grabow go to Boston
Manny Ramirez goes to Florida, with Boston paying every cent of what’s still owed to him this year.
Who’s right? Who’s wrong? I don’t know, but my guess is nobody nails this one until it’s done.
