Jim Bowden on ESPN NEWS

At the end of the interview he said the following:

"Expect a blockbuster trade to happen within 72 hours... O and trust me your peter gammons will have some details before everyone knows anything. Laughs"

Interviewer: "A trade involving the Nationals?"

Bowden: "I dont wanna comment. Laughs"



Thoughts on the trade?

If Manny and Griffey would waive their clauses I could see the 2 of them swapping places with Ryan Freel moving full time to CF and Manny taking over in LF.


That would be a really potent lineup with

The Red Sox need more than that!!


Griffey's numbers pale in comparison to Manny's.


Maybe Dunn and a good starter to Boston.



ESPN.com is saying that the Mariners are involved in Manny talks. I'm guessin Richie is one of the big names involved. Possibly Betancourt too.

So they would have an OF with Dunn and Ramirez? Yikes. I don't think that will happen, nor do I think Boston would want Griffey. He's not a good defender anymore, and he didn't hit that well last year, either.


The Red Sox would certainly want Dunn. Bowden still hearts Griffey, so it's just a matter of what the Reds would get (but, why would the Reds deal with the Nats again?).

Ok, I'm just going to go from thread to thread this week and bring everyone back to reality. A-Rod and Manny are not coming to Milwaukee, unless a) they are traded to a NL club or b) they are traded to an AL club who we play in interleague play next year.


Just take a deep breath and stop talking about A-Rod or Manny coming to Milwaukee in a trade.

Guess I must have missed the Jim Bowden comments, since most of you had seen/heard more thatn what's posted here.


But I agree. No Manny (is it possible he's worse in LF than Lee?J, and A-Rod (can't have a player making over 1/3 of stated budget!).
