It's reported that the Yankees offered their two cents on the Red Sox acquisition of Manny Ramirez: the Red Sox would have been a whole lot better off by picking up Mike Hampton AND Denny Neagle for $176 mil, as opposed to Ramirez and his bat for $160 mil.
I have to agree 100%. With Pedro, Hampton, Neagle and whoever else they could patch together, they'd have been FAR more formidable than they'll be now.
Geez, you'd think Boston would figure out that pitching wins championships, not the big bats and a pack of rag arms! LOL
