Anyone Following Manny? (Signs with San Diego)

I'm getting queasy with this direction the Manny story's taking. I was really hoping he'd be in the NL and the O's would not have to be exposed to him beating 'em with one of the O's best former pieces. I mean, they were gonna trounce the O's anyway, but at least it would not be with Manny and Britton putting the exclamation point on it. Hoping it's someone else. 

Long Term Options: San Diego, ChiSox

Short Term Options: Philly

I'm starting to think he signs a huge one-year deal with a lesser club, Philly, White Sox, maybe even his hometown Marlins. Try again next year.

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.

I'd rather have Arenado.

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

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.

    • If you think trading Villar for scraps is a good idea (which is the same thing as "cash dumping" Jim Johnson, btw), then non-tendering him really isn't a big leap from there and it likely has the same end result. My point in all of this has been that non-tendering Villar to save money isn't some preposterous outcome. It's very defensible, and it's possible that no other team wants to touch him at his arb-salary while giving up anything of potential future value in return.
    • I think Luke's pretty high on Cumberland.  But other than that I generally agree with your take.
    • Major leagues definitely needs the minor leagues.  Players don't go from college straight to MLB.  Scrimmages are not going to make you major league ready.  It would cost them even more money to have games without fans. Plus how much would it cost to shuttle players back  and forth from Florida to say Detroit?   I think you are truly under estimating the value minor league baseball provides to MLB. I think this is all about the lawsuit from minor league players saying they are being paid below minimum wage.  I guess a simpler solution is lower the amount of bonuses you pay drafted players and increase salaries.  That would make the pay more equitable.  And provide housing for the players.  And cater their food.     
    • I hate to ruin this guy’s narrative, but Kevin Goldstein is hardly one of the “young finance and Wall Street bros.”    I don’t know exactly how old he is, but he’s got a 21-year old son, and so far as I know, he has no background on Wall Street or finance, having previously been a long-standing scouting guru for Baseball Prospectus.   And, he didn’t “immediately” send out his email after getting hired; he’d been working for the Astros for 5 years at that point.   
    • Just based on the eye test, this is the best team in football.  They are a more complete team than anyone else.  You do worry about Jackson getting injured, but I think every player other than Brady (somehow, in spite of his middle age) is susceptible to injury at any given time.  Just looking at the schedule, I think the Ravens will get the 2 seed.  It isn't that they can't win their last 6, because they can.  I just don't think New England is losing any more games.  The Patriots are not the Patriots of old and their final 15-1 record will be more indicative of their fortunate scheduling (having Dallas and KC at home helps a lot, as does 6 games against a pathetic division).  The Chiefs are not beating the Ravens twice, especially if the game is in Baltimore.  And no other AFC team is capable of winning in New England in January.  So I think it comes down to yet another Ravens-Patriots showdown in Mass.  The good news is this may be the only franchise not scared of the Patriots "aura and mystique," but they will have to beat them twice.  Hard to do. 
    • So baseball want in increase their fanbase and tweak the game, and keep current fans, bring back old fans, and attract new fans. So you go and screw with everybody minor league system.  
    • My granddaddy shot a 72 on his 72nd birthday. I shot a 60 back on my 60th, those rotating ducks was no match for me.
