Say It With Us: Manny. Kemp. Ethier.

So our third baseman of the future is reunited with his brother in Pittsburgh. Does this mean Blake DeWitt gets the starting job in 2009? More importantly, what do we do with FIVE outfielders? This trade only works if the starting outfield goes:

  • Manny Ramirez.
  • Matt Kemp.
  • Andre Ethier.

Rinse and repeat. Andruw Jones and Juan Pierre must stay on the bench! You want speed? Kemp and Russell Martin. You want power? Manny. Kemp. Ethier.

Ah! Manny is missing a right shoulder!!!

Once again, Stan Conte is asleep!

Weisman likes the deal...but the opinion is predicated on the sound advice that our OF is Manny/Kemp/Ethier. Sound judgment is not something I expect of this team, though.

I won't fully exhale until Jones and/or Pierre are off-loaded. I still smell a Ethier dumping coming, and it smells very bad.

Pierre for Maddux?

Jones for a bucket of baseballs?

Or a bucket of chicken wings?

Extra crispy?

I'd like to trade Jones for a bucket of chicken wings but he would liekly eat them... raw.

Guys, how could you look at Jones and still think about food?

I've found myself thinking "Manny.Kemp.Ethier" all day long. Can't wait for tonight's lineup!
