Doesn't seem like the Yanks gave up much in the deal.
Looks like the biggest prospect involved is Jose Tabata. But doesn't seem like they overpaid, like some teams will the next few days, for what they got.

Seems like the Manny rumors come up every year, but I'm starting to believe that they really might trade him. Seems unbelievable because he's still a damn good hitter but he seems to be pissing a lot of people off. Plus he's getting older and I'm not sure if the Red Sox want to pick up that 20 Million dollar option.

I'm guessing the Sox wouldn't get full value for Manny and they're still in the thick of the race. I'd still be surprised if they deal him--if they have to, let him walk after this year.

Yeah, it would be surprising if the Marlins dealt Hermida & prospects for Manny. I'd also be surprised if the Red Sox dealt Manny with virtually no offensive replacement in sight. Even if they go after Bay, that's still a drop-off and I don't know if they'd risk it.
I heard Kevin Kennedy say that Manny wants to be a free agent so he can get either a 4 year, 75M deal or a 5 year, 100M deal. Kennedy and Lyons said it'd never happen... you think?!?!
What's Manny smoking?

Sounds like that three way deal is pretty close to happening.
Manny to Florida, Hermida to Pitt, Bay to Boston. I'm assuming prospects are in the deal too...

I didn't even know that Boston wanted Bay. I just threw that out there. It seems to make the most sense if they ARE gonna trade Manny.
