Manny Ramirez Trade?

My worst nightmare is being reported by ESPN Deportes (good luck if you don't speak or read spanish, the only part I can figure out is "Los Medias Rojas de Boston"). Manny Ramirez is close to being traded to Seattle for JJ Putz, Adrian Beltre, and Richie Sexson.

This confuses the shit out of me. Putz had a huge year, and he probably could close for the Red Sox, but 1) his name is Putz, the Boston media will have a FIELD DAY with that, but I can' tfigure out for the life of me why the Red Sox would look to add two of the bigger disappointments in recent memory. I mean Adrian Beltre comes out of nowhere and has a banner year, then starts to go back to sucking when the steroid scandal comes up. Can't be any coincidence there, right?

And doesn't Richie Sexson strike out like every other at-bat? I'm not sure he's really the guy you're looking for protection of David Ortiz.

Come to think of it, wouldn't both of these guys be anti-Bill James type players?
