Ah, the Joys of Baseball Trade Rumors

We're admittedly a little tingly about this rumored Abreu-for-Manny-for-Miggy scuttlebutt that's been tossed around, oh, the last couple months. As a Philly fan, it'd be easy to see the town completely embracing Ramirez. Granted, they'll get on him about that whole "hustle" thing, but the same complaints have been made about Abreu for years anyway. Yes, Abreu on paper looks like a fantasy player's wet dream and a perfect addition to any other team, but there will be absolute rejoicing on Broad Street if Ramirez comes to town. And plus Matt Clement is involved in the trade rumor as well. We also love pitchers who almost get killed by line drives. It'll be like the halcyon days of Norm Charlton all over again.
