I guess it will be. Sure glad the O's have him now. 

I'm still hoping the O's can extend him. Hoping he likes it here enough to where maybe $250m is enough money compared to the $300m he can get. Doubtful...but one can always hope.

It will be a shame to see him in a different uniform in two years...or less.

I was thinking that, too. I almost didn't read the OP, because I REALLY don't want to see Manny in a non-Orioles uniform. Hey, who knows? Maybe we'll be shocked and resign him.

If it is the Red Sox or the Yankees, it will be a very long next ten years.   Very long.  I remember how long I was upset about Mussina.  And that will pale in comparison to Manny if he goes to the Dark Side.

By dark side you mean if he decides to make a change in workplace to further his career?

Does another job exist where total strangers take it personally if you leave one employer for a better opportunity for yourself and your family?

Oh no, Davey quit working at Burger King so he could take that assistant manager job at Wendy's.  How could he go over to the dark side?

Tell Davey congratulations. Other than that, if Manny signed with the Red Sox or Yankees, yeah it's personal. I'm sure if the Orioles offered him $250m, his family would be just fine. 

Not many jobs exist where you can be a millionaire a 100 times over playing a game. So forgive me for not seeing your point of view.

It's a job.  Who are you to tell someone how much is enough?  You don't see me telling Taylor Swift that she has enough money and she should lower her ticket prices.

We have all heard the stories of entertainers and athletes ending up in debt despite their income.  Get what you can when you can.

I won't hold it personally against Manny if he signs with the Yankees or Red Sox.    But will it be more painful for me and every other Orioles fan than if he signed with some non-rival?    Of course it would!

But let's not hijack this thread.   It's March 2017.    This article is about Manny helping to lead the younger players in our organization.    Let's celebrate that we're watching an extraordinary player play for our team.

I'm not the one that sent it veering off course.  I was just trying to add a bit of perspective.

Taylor Swift isn't going to a rival team. Manny can do whatever he wants. Who are you to tell me to like it? 

And if Manny signs a $250m deal, and ends up in debt..he won't get any pitty from me.

Where did I tell you to like it?  Oh wait, I didn't.

I wouldn't like it if Manny signs with the Yankees.

I'm done sidetracking this thread.

    • Yeah, but the Rangers had one of the best performing lineups in baseball throughout the playoffs. The Orioles consistently go MIA on offense. Very Inconsistent. If you have a subpar bullpen, you need an offense that can score enough to bail them out. (And vica versa).
    • Tarrasco definitely thought he was catching it, you can tell by his reaction.
    • Not sure about that.  The ball is coming almost straight down at that point.   Tarascó doesn’t even think he has to jump to catch it.
    • Of course the outcome of the play should matter, and in both the videos you linked, the outcome was affected.  And a facemask call is not comparable, since that rule exists due to player safety.
    • Reminds me of one of my son's games when he was 12.  The other team had bases loaded with 1 out and the next batter hit a pretty routine pop up.  The umpires invoked the infield fly rule.  Of course, our Shortstop dropped the pop up (as 12 year olds sometimes do)...   Some of the baserunners thought they then had to try to advance and started running.  One of the runners thought it was a dead ball and he should walk back to the bag. There were runners running in all different directions, some forwards, some backwards... Then the infielders started throwing the ball away during the ensuing rundowns...   I think they managed to finally get a guy out at home ending that inning...   It was sheer pandemonium.  The umpires were laughing...
    • No way Tarrasco was getting that ball.  But I do think it might have hit the top of the fence for an extra-base hit and not an HR...
    • Are you looking for an infield fly runner's interference?  Because as far as I know, it's been 12 years since this exact situation was called.  This is the play that caused the rule to be changed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJu3RL8CV_8   They let the runner bat again and called the 1st base runner out in this case, and then in the offseason clarified the rule to say that both the runner and the batter are out.  But in this case the runner's interference was fairly substantial direct contact.   If you're talking about runners interference in general, on this play Kieboom didn't touch the runner and it was called runner's interference.   https://www.mlb.com/video/yadier-molina-grounds-into-a-force-out-fielded-by-shortstop-carter-kieboom-marcell-ozuna-out-at-3rd-jose-martinez-to-2nd-yadier-molina-to-1st?q=5%2F1%2F2019 stl vs was&cp=CMS_FIRST&qt=FREETEXT&p=3   The outcome of the play shouldn't really matter.  If you commit a face mask in football, and the guy whose face mask you grabbed gets a sack-fumble and recovers, you still get the ball and you get 15 yards.
