Originally posted by Big BadIf Manny is dealt, who does Boston get to plug the hole in the outfield? Anaheim won't deal Garret Anderson, even for Nomar.
They can either pick up a first baseman and slide Millar into left (this might make Mike Greenwell look good in comparison), or they pick up an outfielder once the non-tenders hit the market after December 20th. I'd like to be the first though to throw the name of Ellis Burks into the left field/DH equation for Boston should Manny get shipped out of town.
A-Rod is denying it, FWIW. Obviously his credibility on such things isn't great. If this is true, I wonder how the Players Association will react. They've been standing by him because it's their job to support their members.
