Manny!!!!

Recommended Posts

I'm all in, let's make him a life time O. Yes, this is totally reactionary but emotions are part of the game. The heck with Weiters, Chen and Davis. Show Manny the money and continue to build the minors.

I'd much rather sign Manny long term than sign any of those others. He's a very special talent.

He certainly has made an impression the last two days.

I would give him a Stanton-like deal without hesitation. Players like him come along once in a generation for a team. He's going to cost a fortune but the Orioles have to pay him no matter how much it costs.

I'm not watching the game, because frankly, the ASG bores the snot out of me. I do agree with your post, however. Manny takes me back to my childhood, and I feel like I'm watching Brooks again, at least from a defensive standpoint. He's pretty special at the plate too. :D

HUGE second half coming up for Manny. He could finish with 40 HR the way he is hitting right now.

Manny's the real deal and so is Schoop to a lesser degree.

Manny is better than Brooks offensively. Defensively, he needs to be more consistent.

I'd make him turn down $200M+ this summer/offseason.

I don't think $200 million will be enough. If Manny hits free agency after his six years are up, he's going to get $300 million easy. It'll take at least $250 if not $300 million to lock up unless he wants to settle for a lucrative four or five year deal so he can hit free agency after his age 27 or 28 season.

Trout signed for under $150M for six years, buying out two FA years. Coming off two knee surgeries and three years away from FA, I think $200M will be tough to turn down.

When you say $200M, how many years are you talking about? 8 years? 10 years?

Ten years is what I'd guarantee. That's pretty similar to Stanton during the first ten years. That would put him as a FA at 32. I'd also try to structure a combination of options for another 4,5 years. I'd put that on the table now, and make him turn it down and settle for a year of arbitration.

I wouldn't mind doing a Stanton-like deal for Manny. After watching him in the ASG, I am even more convinced that he's worth it. For those who didn't see it, Manny hit a 2 RBI double and scored later on a sac fly. He also made some terrific defensive plays that got the Fox commentators talking.

    • Me neither. I think I understand Elias's overall plan and the decisions not to promote our best prospects yet, as painful as the consequences may be at around 9 or 10 pm on many nights and on Sunday afternoons.  But where is the organization on Sisco? Despite his unimpressive performance in ML two call-ups, I don't think anyone questions that his offensive potential should earn him a long look at hitting major league pitching but for the doubts as to whether he will be able to catch major league pitching well enough to be the receiver (even a backup) on an Oriole team that's striving to improve and move toward contention. Sisco has been in the Orioles system since 2013. He has had five full seasons, and parts of two others, in which he's played over 400 MiL games, and 65 with the Orioles, all of them at catcher (plus a few games DHing). He's 24 and should be entering his prime years, and catchers often wear down and wear out faster than other position players. It seems to me that should be plenty of time to decide whether Sisco is or isn't going to be good enough defensively to be a major league catcher. (Even if the answer is yes, the Orioles might regard him as only good enough defensively to hold down the position for a couple of years while the team stinks, but should be thought of as keeping the catcher's box warm for Adley Rutschman or someone else we haven't yet heard of.) I have read a lot of comments about whether Sisco is or isn't improving defensively, or whether that's a hopeless task. I'm pretty sure there have been no steps taken to try Sisco at a less challenging position to get his bat in the lineup (third base would seem to be the logical choice, and there's not exactly a talent logjam there), but I don't know whether that means Elias has decided Chance can be the catcher on an improving team or is just letting the experiment  continue.  If someone out there has some information or insight on the Elias regime's views of Sisco's defense and future, I'd really like to hear about it.        
    • One of my favorites.  Really made me sad to see him end up in Boston.
    • Yeah, injuries derailed Loewen as well. As you mentioned, the expectations on our end as fans were just unreasonable.  That why depth is so important, because the odds are that most of these guys aren't going to work out.  It's also why I'm really following Means closely, because if he turns into even a back-end rotation starter that's a huge development.  You need some of these "out-of-nowhere" guys as well.
    • Well, you brought up a few moments of stupidity.  I feel like there are more.   If the goal is to get this team trained up and developed, part of that has to be situational awareness and having your players know what to do.  
    • 16,457 last night. Thank God for Yankee fans. 😀 Probably a little more tonight. Thursday should be one of the bigger crowds of the year.
    • The thing is Bordick is pretty honest when I have heard him on the radio not doing a broadcast. He gets with Hunter and they turn into the Lollypop Club.Also do they get paid on how many times an inning they mention Hyde and the coaches.Hyde loves their resilience. Hyde let them read the Bob Feller plaque about hard work and a long season.The players before the game are working hard with the coaches People don't realize the effort they put in.They watch videos and the coach who works with the catchers is the best.As opposed to the prior bench coach who worked with the catchers who was the best Not sure why other teams have coaches who dont coach.This coaching thing and managing are only done in Baltimore. 
    • Torres wants us to have the #1 pick in 2020.
