For the long haul I think the Red Sox did ok -- Francona has enough to
deal with. In LA, with Manny on 'good behavior' so he can try to
convince all the rich teams (except Boston of course) to engage in a
bidding war during the off season, and with Torre as a manager (who has
a LOT of experience dealing with prima donna ballplayers and owners), he
might have an exceptional two months.

I mean exceptional in two ways -- on field performance and off the field
behavior. Exceptional in that come next year, I expect Manny to be
Manny and be a clubhouse scourge when he gets in a bad mood.
