of Ted Williams's contribution to the Red Sox?''

Jim Talks No-Trade With Cleveland Fans.
Nothing Doing Now. Anything Can Happen. Burks on Deck.
What are your thoughts on Jim Thome and a possible trade to Boston or Atlanta?
(Chat 12:08 PM ET )
Mark Shapiro is going to meet with Thome and all his veteran players today and
let them know where this thing is going. They can stay if they want, but they
should know they're not staying to contend. Thome wanted to finish his career
in Cleveland, but that's not happening, barring something unforeseen. So he
can control his fate. And he's told friends he prefers to go to Boston because
he loves Grady Little. I don't know if the Red Sox have enough to give
Cleveland, because they're system isn't exactly loaded at the moment. But if
they'll take all of Thome's salary ($4 million or so), the asking price in
players would go down. Atlanta probably can't take on that much salary, from
what I'm hearing. And I think Thome would prefer to stay in the AL.

Running Away From Thome?
Jim will announce his intentions tomorrow. Mixed reports
regarding waiving the no-trade clause. May move to Atlanta or Boston if goes
but could take hometown discount to stay.

wasn't brilliant for the Fenway nine yesterday;
The score stood four to two, with but two innings more to play,
And then when Hillenbrand got to first, and Varitek did the same,
A pall-like silence fell upon the patrons of the game.
A straggling few got up to go in deep despair. The rest
Clung to that hope which springs eternal in the human breast;
They thought, "If only Manny could but get a whack at that —
We'd put up even money now, with Manny at the bat."
