01:58 PM ET 12.22 | AC Milan is ready to make a move to take Fernando Torres on loan. Although Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has insisted the striker is not for sale or loan in January, Milan will try to convince the Blues otherwise. The Italian giants will offer to pay Torres' full wages and structure a permanent $45 million-plus option in any deal for next summer.

Does Milan need another striker option? Isn't Pato healthy now?

QUOTE(#615):Originally posted 02:07 PM ET 12.22 by TLVG Yes and no. You look beyond the Sox and a character pattern emerges. I think the most telling thing about Boston is they named the tunnel after Ted Williams, he of zero team championships, while Bill Russell doesn't even have so much as an alley named after him. My point is, the fans are a big part of the problem, although with the Sox, ownership hasn't helped their cause.

And that's why I mentioned racism. You don't have to look too hard into Boston's local history to find it.... and that probably goes way further than sports.

BUT, one only needs to remember that the Sox had the opportunity to sign Jackie Robinson AND Willie Mays but didn't on racial grounds.

Milan seems to be making a habit lately of scrounging around for headcases they can nab on the cheap....

I don't see why a team would extend themselves for Torres like that.
