Take Your Pick

Player A: Left Fielder, known clubhouse cancer, future Hall-of-Famer. Still a very productive hitter, though his fielding leaves something to be desired. Willing to sign for the league minimum as a free agent.

Player B: Left Fielder, known clubhouse cancer, future Hall-of-Famer. Still a very productive hitter, though his fielding leaves something to be desired. Signed for $20 million this year, and wants a big contract extension if you trade for him. Must give up prospects to acquire him in trade.

I'm no conspiracy theorist, but if any team trades for Manny Ramirez rather than give Barry Bonds a call, something is definitely rotten in the state of baseball.

Oh come on,

A) Bonds isn't signing for the league min.
B) Surely you've accepted by now that a backroom deal has been made NOT to sign Bonds. I, for one, am ok with that.

I'll give you B. As for A:
