Alright, I really truly believe Manny will make his decision once we get to 200 pages.  Unfortunately with peavy44 suddenly MIA, that might take another couple of weeks.

Was it better when we had to get the trade news across the ESPN ticker? I don’t know about that. That sucked waiting on that stuff. 

Social media rumors tend to be largely BS with kernels of truth here and there

Until the player signs, nothing is done.

I’m going to go out on a limb and say if this is true, the Phillies are the most likely to meet this and the Yankees are for sure out. Praying the Sox come closest.

I still contend we will all be surprised at how big the number is when all is said and done.

I'd prefer $330M to $250M as well.  So can't really blame him.  Even after taxes, that is enough for like 10 mansions!

Just wait until I close it and start a new one over a benign Nightengale tweet.

Maybe but I feel confident in saying the total value of contract will be less than Stantons but the AAV will be higher.

The thing about that $325 number though was that it was like 12 years .... right?

If he's getting 7-9 years he's not going to get $325, nor does he deserve it. I'd go 10/300 over 7/245 in my opinion. Like if getting to 300 meant that much.. id just keep tacking on years.10/300... 11/300 ... 12/326

Stanton's AAV was $25M.  It will be much higher.  Beating Greinke's $34.5M AAV is the hurdle IMO.

Once we paid Jon Jay $4M that sealed it for me. Getting a raise off a down year. This is on the tee and the only question is the last few days of holding us over the barrel to squeeze out a little extra from us.

If nothing else, I am 100% sure at this point that Dan Clark's report is a load of crap.

Simonetti had a youtube vlog today where he confirmed that more than one ex-teammate has said Manny will go to the Yankees (before and after he met with the Yankees).

He’s certainty pretending that’s not the case.  He maintains his position in a recent mailbag post on his blog.

to paraphrase, there's a source that he's used for previous Yankees information (trade package Indians wanted, Britton deal) that has talked to ex-teammates.

Having continuing smoke that Manny really prefers the Yankees is a great way to try and drive up bids by other teams as well.

Why would the Braves want Machado after signing Donladson and also having Camargo, Swanson and even Riley in the upper minors?

I forgot all about the Braves signing Donaldson.
