The latest iteration:

The Commissioner’s Office has been informed of a deal involving the Pirates, Red Sox, and Marlins. …the teams, I am told, have not agreed on the specific prospects to be included in the deal. …

    Marlins get Manny Ramirez, one prospect (Red Sox), and cash (likely covering Ramirez’s remaining salary) Pirates get Jeremy Hermida and three prospects (two Marlins, one Red Sox)
    Red Sox get Jason Bay and John Grabow (Baseball Prospectus)

Let’s hear your opinions, we’ll have plenty of them once the trade happens (if it happens). My quick take: Love it. Hermida and Bay are great players, but they don’t provide the now element that Bay and Grabow do. A lot of people are drinking the haterade on Bay which I don’t understand… please view his career statistics. He has to be a defensive upgrade, is locked in through next year ($7.5 million contract next year) and can rake. Count me on board, Manny has worn out his welcome.
