Toronto said: “We’ll give you $10.00 for him.”
Cherington: “Before they change their minds. Sold!”

Well, I still think he needs to step back 3-4 inches, but Cruz covered that one!

Sold to Toronto sounds, not right, traded for cash sounds better, and I’m far from PC as they get!!!!

Nickels is saving the money to buy a good pitcher….nah, he needs a new ski lift at Seven Springs.

He sold his ski resorts late last year.

Good maybe I’ll go back out and play some golf now that he doesn’t own them.
Thanks for the info I’ll look it up. Seven Springs had a very hilly golf course but it’s fun to play.

Why Wilson?

john_fluharty

Probably because he is on the 40 and has experience. Never mind that he isn’t any good lol.

Because there is no one else…
