So it seems as though Manny being the Halos plan B could be more than just a rumor. According to reports, Mike Scioscia asked Boston Skipper Terry Francona about what it's like to have Manny in the clubhouse. This could actually hurt our chances at Manny if we lose out on Tex since I'm sure Terry doesn't have the greatest things to say about Manny. Also, he wouldn't be too thrilled in campaigning one of the greatest hitters in the history of baseball to the Angels, a rival American League power. But on the other hand, this can put some theories to rest which stated that Manny was in no way a "Mike Scioscia" type of player. Scioscia is clearly interested in Manny, otherwise he wouldn't be asking about him. Perhaps if he wants a full perspective on Manny, he should make a phone call to Joe Torre.
