Is it happening?

The Boston Herald is reporting this morning that Red Sox owner John Henry has met with Alex Rodriguez. Many believe that this is a sign that a trade for this powerful player may be imminent.

It's expected that the deal would be: trading Manny Ramirez for A-Rod, with some cash possibly being included. Then, to open up the shortstop position, and save some $$ to pay for the deal, the Red Sox would trade Nomar Garciapara, possibly to San Diego.

I have no problem seeing Manny leave town, he's been a major distraction and doesn't seem to have the right attitude. Having A-Rod in Boston would be a real plus, but his $20+ million dollar salary concerns me a bit. Finally, I always thought of Nomar as being a career Red Sox, but once we've gotten used to the idea, neither I, nor most people calling the sports radio talk-shows, are really all that bothered by the idea.
