so they're lusting after Manny.
Stop, you fools. While Manny would certainly bring the psychodrama potential to nose-bleed levels (seriously, Girardi would likely end up killing him after waking one morning to the NY Post running a front page of Manny and Madonna boinking in Macy's window as A-Hole lies curled in a fetal position on the Herald Square pavement with one thumb screwed in his mouth and the other screwed in his ass), you silly young spawns of Darth Boss George should just STFU and leave this kind of crap to Cashman.
And if you really, really, really need to throw even more truckloads of money at someone (good God, you've already committed a quarter billion to two freaking pitchers and one of them screams "PAVANO!") to justify your Steinbrenner-hood bona fides, do everyone a favor: make your target Teixiera.
Throw gobs and gobs of money at Teixiera, because if you don't, and Tex ends up in Fenway, while WE end up with Manny and all the insanity he carries....
well, let's just say it would be against your interests to ever dare leave Tampa Bay unless you're riding in an up-armored Humvee.
