Peter Gammons Chat Transcript:

Chances Not Good For a Clemens Return
Prospect Props: Andy Marte is a Keeper
Will It Be Lugo at Short and Reed in Center?
Manny Has Time to Report to Spring Training
The Best Offense and the Best Defense: Youk's On First
Theo Would Have Traded Rent-a-Wreck, Lost Damon Too
Tejada Trade Talks Stalled, Best Guess is Still Miggy at Short
Top Dog: Nixon's the One to Be in Shape, Have Big Year

"Tejada's numbers will increase because of the lineup around him. But I think Manny is born to play in Baltimore. He's a right centerfield hitter. His greatest power has been minimized by fenway park. I can easily see him hitting 50 homers in Camden Yards. In my mind, as great a player as Tejada is, if the Orioles can get Ramirez and Clement, I personally think they would be crazy to turn it down." -- 01.04.06, Peter Gammons, chat
