    Manny: Nope, still no news

    My sources have told me the latest offer to Manny is a non-roster invite to spring training and $100 Portillo's gift card.

    This whole process sucks, sucks bad. If this bullshit isn't on the top of the list of things to fix by the higher ups in MLB they should all be fired.

    Official 2018-19 NFL Thread

    Whats the issue here? Yes it would be different if it were Mack, rightfully so. One is a replaceable, shitty kicker the other is far and away the best player on the team and one of the best players in the league. The latter gets a longer rope, the former will be cut because he sucks and did something stupid in the media.

    Not if Manny's camp is trying to drive up the price of a team making serious offers.

    The only players getting screwed are the young guys, not the dudes making hundreds of millions. The MLBPA has been selling out young talent for decades so 30 year old guys could sign massive deals. Teams finally smartened up and stopped handing those deals out so now those deals are gone. Their next deal needs to have massive pay increases for young guys

    Sox v Phillies pretty much gives a definitive answer on the offer as well. The only reason to go one or the other is money, no Yankees-love-discount involved allowing Sox brass to lie about their offer.

    Buys them some time from me and shows me they actually are for real about building a good baseball team whatever it takes.

    So its down to highest bidder. Sox better be that highest.
  9. The only embarrassing thing would be if they don't blow away every other offer for him. That's the only thing that matters ultimately, not all these guys on 1 year deals making pennies.

    Offseason plan in the event the Sox don't get HarpChado

    Sign a bunch of shitty 30+ year olds Claim they were all in on Manny and Harper but just couldn't afford them

    Machado: Update - Manny, do you officially like us?

    How? If that were the case we should be hearing "Manny leaning towards Sox/Philly due to money" to try and get the Yankees offer up.

    Machado: Update - Manny, do you officially like us?

    As long as it comes out he took a 50m+ paycut to go to NYY. Can't support this team if the money was equal from Sox/Yankees.

    Sox reach new TV deal with NBC Sports

    I assume it's due to these massive TV deals forbidding it? If that is the case then I don't see it happening any time soon unless they're able to go market by market as the TV deals expire...but then at that point the TV deals may not be as massive if they don't get a monopoly on the games. A real catch 22

    Update: Machado met with Sox

    "Bryce, we're signing Manny it will be announced Saturday. We'll keep quiet if you want to try to use us as leverage, but you have our offer"

    So I wanna not believe you hard, your post count is high enough to not be insta-troll, but I still refuse to believe good things can happen.
