Machado signs with Padres 10/300

Recommended Posts

I do like the "swell option" deal structure as a possible explanation for the competing claims on length and dollars. The only question is whether someone would knowingly misrepresent the offer to reporters or if perhaps the source is someone who isn't plugged in enough to understand how to convey the parameters of a proposal like that.

Don't count your chickens just yet

What if you literally have to count your chickens? Like chicken inventory. You should probably be clear that this is a figure of speech.

Should we start casting for the eventual Lifetime movie? Who plays Dan Clark?

I would love for a documentary to come out on something like this.  Follow Manny's  (any big name free agent) camp and see how things are behind the scenes with offers, rumors, etc.

Swell opt definitely at play here.   And actually could make Olney et al. and Passan right   It’s 7 years at something lower but likely 8 at $240 million and could swell to a longer period as Passan suggests.

I don't know how well the swellopt explains the different contract figures. It might explain the years, but I don't think it would explain the different numbers. As far as I can tell from the other swellopts this year, it doesn't include any sort of second signing bonus or increased salary during the contract, just extra years and whatever salary those are agreed to at. So if the option is for one or two years at the end of the contract, you would think those would only be for $30m/yr max. If the 7/$175 figure is correct, that would only increase it to 8/$205 and even that would mean the last year was a higher AAV than the rest of the contract. If you think the figure might be closer to the 8/$240 we were hearing before, then maybe the 7 year offer is for $210 in which case the final year would be for the same AAV as the rest of the contract. That I could see being the discussion, but it still doesn't explain the 7/$175 offer we heard.

Well this explains why Levine was confused and thought the present value of a dollar was greater than the future value of a dollar

if we don't get machado maybe Mark Teahen will come out of retirement for us

You mean if we can't convince Teahen to come out of retirement, I suppose we can settle for Machado.

Not spending the extra $ for Jeff Keppinger would be typical JR.

Yeah, I get all that, but those still have the per year salary of the option years being less than the per year salary of the beginning of the contract. So it still doesn't make sense with the 7/$175 deal because the last year or two would max out at $25m/yr and that would only bring the contract to 8/$200 or 9/$225 and both of those seem lower than what has been reported.

I would love a tell-all book or something! For all the behind the scenes stuff we won't know about.

How long has it been since we've gone a day without any rumors?

Follow-up, how long will it take for a national guy to sneak out of timeout and reach back in the cookie jar?

It would be awesome to see which leaks are true, the negotiation process, Manny's feelings throughout, etc.
