Manny was supposedly offered 220 for seven or eight years by the Yankees. 

He should have accepted immediately.

If it happened.

He’s worth more.

So?

Ain't many players getting paid what they are "worth".

He can play where he wants or maybe make more to play somewhere he doesn't want to be.

So? He’s worth more in this market. The Phillies creative contract with Arrieta is an example of the type of deal that might suit both parties. A higher AAV in place within that type of deal might get it done.

How much more would you have to be paid to do something you'd rather not do instead of your dream job?

Well, you’ve nailed it.

Call it collusions or what not, MLB Owners are not going to pay $300MM+ for Harper or Machado....  It's just absurd to pay athletes this much money.

Manny is better off taking whatever 1-2 year deal he can get @ $30MM-$40MM per year and test the market out again.

It’s what I said, higher AAV with an opt out in the second year. Something like that.

I'd rather have Arenado.

Much older and showed slump potential last year. Also. Coors. Woosh.

He's not going to ask 10 years.

Maybe can get him for five, six on the outside.

Also, he doesn't throw bats at people.

I think Manny wants the Yankees more than the Yankees want Manny.

The Yankees are in a better position to dictate their terms knowing his preference and their need. He needs to let go of the fantasy. I don’t think a 7-8 deal totaling needs to be accepted. 

Shorter deal, higher AAV and the ability to hit the market again (or not) based on performance.

He should only do that if he thinks the market will be better next year.

Will it?  The free agent market is trending down the past few years.

If he signs a 1 year deal, Harper will probably get a long deal and be gone next year.

I don't know if it's a market trend or just that Manny and Harper are both on the market at the same time.

I heard he is looking for 10/300+ on MLB network.

You can always ask.

A 29 year old isn't getting 10/300 unless his name is Trout.
