Anyone Following Manny? (Signs with San Diego)

He should have accepted immediately.

If it happened.

If they offered it, they won’t walk away from it.   

As irritating as it would be if the Yankees get Manny, it’s really going to be irritating to see them getting him at a relative bargain.

What if that bargain was closer to the deal the Orioles gave Davis?    :leaving:

I don't hold a grudge and hope the Yankees have as much success as the O's have had with Davis.

What if Nats lose Harper to the Giants, then sign Manny to a “cheaper” deal. Then move Turned back to the OF.

It would then only be fitting for Buck to come in and win the whole thing in 2020.

Who signs first Harper or Machado?My guess is Harper  especially since it  appears like Machado is going to sign for significantly less than anticipated which would negatively effect Harpers market. The lesser of the two players should set the market for the other. It’s hard for me to believe the Nats offered Harper 300mill and he hasn’t signed it. If Harper does end up signing a contract at that value or close Machado should definitely exceed it. Is the Nats rumored offer still on table?  If I’m Machado I’m holding out till Harper signs, which should be this week.

Jon Heyman is reduced to searching ManNY's instagram for clues.  Sad!

 

That is what happens when the player isn't a Boras client.

It won't be irritating when he makes a boneheaded baserunning error in the playoffs, though.  Focus on the positives.

 I don't understand the latest on Harper.  Before he was a free agent, the Nats reportedly offered Harper 10 years and over $300M.  Now, he's considering a short-term deal with SF?  IF ManNY really has a NY state-of-mind, will he accept a shorter-deal now as well?  It sounds to me like the agents for both really overplayed their hands and the spin whenever they sign will be fun to watch.  Also, the excuses out of D.C. to how they let this all happen for a lousy comp-pick, well... make that a double batch of popcorn.

It is almost as if the players got together and planned it so one of them would release one of these statements every week or so.

It was Longoria's turn, now it's Verlander.

You missed Buster Posey.

Yeah, and none of them blame Harper for turning down 10/$300M because it doesn't fit the message.   To them it isn't ManNY and Harper.  It's about inflating prices for the entire industry.  "A rising tide lifts all boats."

Buster said the Orioles should be in win now mode.
