Nothing will happen over the weekend, according to one source familiar with the proceedings, allowing both sides to assess where they are and exactly what they need.
Assess where they are and exactly what they need? I hope this is a joke.
Both teams know where they are. The Sox are 3.5 games the Twinkies behind in their division and there’s no other team between the two. The Dodgers are 5 games behind the Giants in the Wild Card and there are 3 more teams between the two. There also are 2 teams right behind them.
Both teams know what they need. The Sox need a DH in their quest to catch the Twinkies. The Dodgers need to get rid of Manny’s contract since it’s unlikely all 4 teams slip (don’t forget 2 teams right behind them) and they go to the top.
Can we speed things up please?
