ESPN 'Lost Socks' Chide Red Sox Over Ramirez Trade


Acting quickly following the trade of the Red Sox' Manny Ramirez to the Los Angeles Ddgers, last Thursday, ESPN agency Ground Zero, by noon Friday, had plastered laundromats around LA county with lost socks affixed to a tag which read, "Lose a sock, Boston? ESPN joins Los Angeles in welcoming Manny Ramirez." Quick thinking and wit works just about every time. Nice work.

Boston would do well to respond to that with something along the lines of "No, that sock was stretched out and had holes in it. Got a new one that fits. Thanks, though."
