Manfred on Mad Dog radio

Recommended Posts

If mods want to move to MLB section I understand but wanted as many people to see it as possible. Manfred is such a hot topic. 

He was just on SiriusXM with Chris Russo for about half hour. 

-Talked covid, social justice a little bit. Nothing earth shattering. Did say they were a little slow with social justice comments but wanted to make sure it was correct - paraphrasing 

-On criticisms he doesn’t love baseball. Said he loves baseball. Went in 1968 Yankee Stadium as a fan. Grew up with cable watching Yankees. 

-Not a fan 16 teams playoffs. Purely a 2020 issue. 12-14 playoff teams if we do it. 

 

-No Decision on DH National league. Seems to want to leave up to NL teams.

 

-Extra inning rule has a chance. Players like it.

 

-Less than 9 innings for DH tougher one. Not sure whether it has life. Sounds like that isn’t happening. 

 

-Not appropriate to comment on Mets new owner. Wasn’t a criticism just not appropriate. Did say amount for team speaks to health of sport. 

 

-TBS new Tv deal by 2023 will be 50 years going back to Braves. They will have Tuesday TV window. Good for our game. 3.7B deal

 

-Negotiations with ESPN hopeful continue relationship.

 

-Cash loss will approach over 3B this year.

 

-Different without fans hope next year can.

I wish Chris had asked him about draft but he did not.

Cash loss of 3B?

He means MLB revenue will be 3B less right? 

He termed it as cash loss. Maybe cash flow? He didn’t say that specific loss of revenue, distinctly used word cash for whatever reason.

Every time Manfred speaks, I get mad all over again. There are very few people I want to hear less than him.

Don’t think so.    Revenue must be down by a lot more than 3B.   Have a look at my thread on last year’s Forbes numbers.    The average team has gate revenues of $94 mm — that’s $2.82 bb lost right there.    Then consider that local TV revenues (per another Forbes article, $2.3 bb) are probably down proportionally to the number of games — that’s another $1.4 bb down.  Then there’s the National TV revenue - whatever portion of that relates to the regular season probably reduced proportionally.   So it’s got to be at least a $5 B revenue loss for MLB overall, maybe more.    Not sure if it translates to a $3 BB loss, though. MLB had net income of $40 mm per team of $1.2 B in 2018.    Subtract $5 BB lost revenue but add in $3 B in payroll deductions and you’re only $800 mm in the hole.    I’m sure there are other revenue and cost reductions that I haven’t mentioned that would move the needle from there, but it seems unlikely it would swing $2.2 B lower than what I calculated here .

In other words, the owners are not begging on the street corners.

Somehow they'll find a way to struggle on.

    • MLB Pipeline did a Top 10 on their podcast this week, including shreds on I guess NCAA sophomores who like Kjerstad in February/March may have done stuff for a few weeks.  It also acquainted me with the demographics of the basket where 1-5 will be one of them. Pirates 1 - Lawlar the HS shortstop Rangers 2 - Kumar Tigers 3 - McClain, some Madrigal-sized middle infielder from UCLA, maybe/maybe not SS Red Sox 4 - del Castillo, some slugging catcher from "The U" deemed best hitter in draft Orioles 5 - Leiter (I'd be glad with this outcome for polish going towards 2022 usefulness) D'Backs 6 - Jake Hill, the LSU right-hander, non-Vanderbilt best of SEC rest.   Guessing Ben may know him some. Royals 7 - Jud Zabian, Florida OF    <mock now at 6 straight NCAA after the high school SS character who seems impossible to get to 1-5> <hosts say these Top 7 are a clear tier in whatever order they fall> Rockies 8 - Alex Vanellas, Louisville 3B Angels 9 - Marcelo Mayer, high school SS #2 Mets 10 - James Wood, IMG Academy high school OF <nary a high school pitcher in these 10, though with draft pushed back to July, the Nick Bitsko analogs born in 2003 will have some extra time to strut their stuff, in case the next Kerry Wood, Josh Beckett or Dylan Bundy can only Netflix and chill right now>    
    • I would dangle him to anyone whi would take him. I didn't want him back at any cost let alone 1.8M
    • He is so streaky that when he is in his funk he will be worse than the MIF we run out there.
    • https://halohangout.com/2020/07/13/angels-garrett-stallings-summer-camp/ An Angels fansite report when he later got to their 60 this summer cites a curve as the Junior year difference maker. Their source for that this campus story https://247sports.com/college/tennessee/Article/Tennessee-Vols-Baseball-Vols-Garrett-Stallings-selected-in-fifth-round-of-MLB-Draft-132589216/ also has the details he was their 2019 Friday night guy even with Crochet on the team. His Perfect Game blurb from high school times mentioned three-quarters to over the top arm angle, gee whiz. Who knows if he could have had Kevin Smith's 2019 in parallel universe 2020?   SEC trade imports links them, but Smith actually doing it including a little AA success is a big credit in his favor for the moment.
    • He fits the Smith/Kjerstad mold of SEC guys steadily improving (Growth Mindset?), even if some of that is demonstrated in small sample sizes.   Smith did backup his Junior Year rise up draft boards with his great 2019 for the Mets.  I am imagining entering Junior year Stallings was not a 5th or 25th round profile.   He's one more piece for the box of chocolates we'll get to open in the spring.
    • I wonder if he had a velocity spike his junior year and if that would make it less likely for him to have untapped velocity?
