3. Where's Manny Going?
RCS: Switching gears to baseball if we may (amazingly, pitchers and catchers report in just seven days). Recently Manny Ramirez turned down a one-year, $25 million contract from the Dodgers, and despite ongoing talks, rumors persist that the Mets (and maybe even the Yankees) could be interested. Where do you think 'Manny Being Manny' occurs in 2009?
Vaccaro: Well, my personal credo has become to never count the Yankees out when it comes to any player until that player lands somewhere else. That said -- and although I think and have written he makes perfect sense for the Mets, who seem disinclined to pull the trigger -- I have a hard time believing the Dodgers won't ultimately do what's necessary to bring him back. As bad as the backlash is among Mets fans who want him, I have to think Dodgers fans would mount a full-scale revolt if he lands elsewhere.
