"Wow offer made to Davis!" (7 years - $150M Not one nickle more)

Recommended Posts

They may. O's seem intent on bringing Davis back. With there not being a huge market for 1B, this could be the situation where the O's give out a big FA contract.

Whether 7/140 is a good idea is another story.

Will that be enough? They may offer that when they know he has 6/150 in hand.

I have yet to see an team that will go 7/140 or more. I don't think the Cards will. Dipoto does not sound like he will with the Mariners. The Giants are going to spend a ton on a starting pitcher. Maybe 30M/year on Price or Greinke. Probably not enough left to go for Davis also. Houston has AJ Reed coming and they seem to like Gattis at DH. The Yankees are more likely to go for a outfielder (Heyward or Upton) if they do anything at all. Boston sounds focussed on pitching and keeping Ramirez at first. The Blue Jay have the best offense in baseball and need starting pitching. I just don't see who is going to give Davis 7/140. I question if the O's will.

Roch is reporting that Jim Duquette is predicting that the O's could sign Davis for 7/140. Do you believe the O's will go that high?

He had a line recently that was something to the effect of "Can the Orioles afford to resign Chris Davis? Perhaps the better question is 'can they afford not to." He went on to talk about not alienating players and fans, etc. He brings up a good point. You can't let Cruz walk and trade Tommy Hunter all because of money, and still let CD walk. I mean, of course the O's can do whatever they want, but I think it'd be a catastrophic failure to let him go, unless his price is so out of control that it'd be irresponsible to match another offer. I think 7/140 is within their spending means.

Also, somewhat unrelated, what does the MASN ruling mean for payroll? Anything? Or are we going to continue the OH consensus that PGA is just going to use MASN money to line his pockets instead of assembling a winner?

If they do, it sure will put a smile on Manny's face.

I'd rather the team put 7/140 towards extending Machado this off-season. I like Davis, and it was nice to see "Crush" alive and well this past season, but it seems like the 7/140 for Davis would be an albatross after year 4 - probably.

Agree 100%....letting Manny walk would be a huge mistake. Manny is on his way to Cooperstown.

I might be in the minority here, but I would offer Manny 10/250 right now, and not think twice about it. Keep Manny here until he is 33. 25mil AAV would probably prove to be a little bit of a bargain over the life of the contract. Manny would have to think long and hard before turning down 10/250. You don't let cornerstone players like Manny get away...

I'm not disagreeing with you toatally, but why extend Manny and put all of your money in one player of they can't spend around him?

By the way, I would not resign Davis. I think they could spread some money around and get improvement from a couple of spots that did not produce last season.

Since we're always talking about how and the farm system is, can we really afford to let Manny walk in a few years and have another hole were unable to fill? Make him an offer he can't refuse and give the team some guarantees of an MVP candidate for years to come. I'm not sure how some huge contract for him affects what the O's can do next year, but if we're gonna use that money on anyone I'd rather it be Manny than Crush (I would like both but come on).

    • The right choice IMO.    Congrats to him.    I hope his strong performance in a relatively short period this year carries over into 2021. Santander has now played just a little more than a full season’s worth of games (176) and his 162-game average is 29 HR, 91 RBI to go with his career .759 OPS (which includes his two partial Rule 5 seasons).     
    • o   Santander won it (thanks for the info, Sports Guy.)   This is mildly reminiscent of when Erik Bedard led the American League in Strikeouts-Per-9 Innings (10.929), Hits-Per-9 Innings (6.973), and was among the league leaders in Strikeouts (221) in spite of having missed the final 5 weeks of the season due to injury.   o
    • Yeah, I mean there will be some churn, but starting with the guys currently in the organization is really all you can do in making predictions. I don't see them doing much trading but I could see potentially bringing in guys to challenge Valaika, Nunez, and Ruiz in spring training as well as a few more bullpen arms, but I would be surprised if they signed anyone to a MLB deal that would be immediately penciled into a roster spot. There isn't a glaring hole that needs to be filled like with signing Iglesias, just some potential improvements in the margins. If they wanted to spend money, they could sign a LeMahieu or Justin Turner, but that type of signing feels like a year off to me.
    • I dont think there is a more overrated Os prospect, amongst fans, than McKenna.  He doesn’t hit well.     He certainly may be able to carve out a 4th/5th OFer role but that’s not exactly hard to find. He has been rated way too high in many prospect lists.
    • Although it is way too soon, to absolute definites are that Nunez will be gone and Phillips will be gone. It’s not official yet but I expect that Davis will be gone as well.
    • The rebuilding phase is basically over if you think about it. You are now handing the keys to the young talent, some of which got real experience this year, even if it was a SSS. Its time to supplement them. But more than that, zero chance they basically bring back the exact same team. Guys will be nontendered, guys will be traded, new players will be brought in.    They may not spend real money..I would anticipate they won’t but they should and there are som opportunities there.
    • I would not count on Phillips. "Elbow inflammation" is never a good sign.
