    Anyone Following Manny?

    MLB.tv is already like $85 per month for a season, so its not too outrageous to suggest $300 for a seasons worth of games. Even that high of a number might not make up for the lost revenue of traditional cable TV.

    Does he hold out until spring if the offers dont improve? Its obvious his agent isnt happy.

    But if the only other suitors are the Wsox and Phils w/lowball offers, why would the Nats pay more? This isnt the Yanks and LA bidding. its obvious Harper doesn't really want to go to either one.

    Detroit's owner, who also wanted Davis and had to be talked out of bidding for him.

    During the season when the Nats (and obviously Harper) figured there would be more demand. Instead only the Wsox and Phils have shown any interest. Boras might wait I read that too but I dont think its there now, Im pretty sure I read that offer was pulled. He really looks pretty foolish holding out for a better offer than that.

    I think its much lower. Like $200M tops for each. Its way past time for these guys to sign and all the leaked offers are for less than $200M. If there isnt a market, there isnt a market.

    Im just hoping this will benefit the Orioles somehow. Instead of a long painful rebuild, maybe theres a few good players they can sign at these affordable prices. Manny included.

    Or going total ape%hit. Im not sure why Boras of all people would be chuckling. Almost no Free Agents have signed yet because Harper and Machado are holding up the market. I do wish the Orioles would get involved now that it looks like he wont get $200M. Assuming he thinks the team is worth playing for.

    I wish the Orioles would jump in if Manny's only getting $25m for 7 years.

    I suspect they thought Manny was an upgrade over Beckham at SS. It backfired pretty badly on all of them though, except Manny.

    Harper even turned down $300m from the Nats during the season. Will he get $225m now? Im pretty sure Philly will not be outbid for Manny. He may not want to play there but if he truly cares about the highest contract, that might be it.

    Davis a two-way Player?

    Agree with the OP. Proclaim Davis the next Ohtani, and watch the trade market develop.

    Harold Baines.....Lee Smith in Hall of Fame

    This shows why players and executives voting for their own "era" is a really bad idea.
