Manny: Agent of Chaos

So lets say the Yankees are at 7-year, $220 million and the Sox are at 7-year, $270 million, do we think that is enough for us to land him?

Logically, taxes alone hurt that Yankees offer compared to the Sox. Hell, if that’s the two deals, I would throw another year on the end of it.

We all thought it was a terrible system when the yankees would just overwhelm the top FA every year with money, probably worse when the yankees get them on a discount.

True. However, I don't think this is a common case where it's a significant amount. This applies to Machado  but not Harper this year.

It makes a lot of sense if the Sox are offering 7/270ish...with the back pocket being 8/300 if Lozano plays the "need to up the ante" rhetoric.  That deal is still market value and only pays up until age 34 season...which still should be very productive for his bat.

Yep. As a final offer I think that’s pretty solid. Can’t see the Yankees going anywhere even close to that amount. But will the Sox entertain that total? Because everything we’ve heard so far seems to imply they won’t.

For real how do you block a member? If I go to the profile page of the individual I can't seem to find a mute button... is it somewhere else im not looking?

If you're on PC, just hover your mouse over his name in the thread and there's an ignore option.

If everyone could just move on from this I would appreciate it.

 

 

Can we all just block him? That way, the ones that do can stop seeing people quote him.

No he did not. You DO NOT share people's private contact information over the internet without their permission just because you do not like them. Sharing private information to encourage harassment of that person can be considered doxxing and may be considered a crime.

Yankees fans going destroy his twitter account anyways make him delete it.

It is super easy.  Click your user name profile in top right corner.  Go to ignored users.  Type in peavy44.  Problem solved.  Your life will be better because of it.

won't that shorten the thread by like 20% though? I thought size matters...

It will still show that he posts but you won't be able to read it (unless you select that you want to). Hopefully after a while, these threads are just him sharing the opinions of people from Twitter we don't give a fuck about and no one responds to any of them since by that time, everyone has blocked him.

Just so anyone who is wondering what just happened knows - the moderators cleared a post with inappropriate content and are dealing with the poster. A few posts are being archived to clear them out.

The Manny chatter on Twitter seems quiet this morning... A little too quiet.

That's a good thing for us, IMO

I kind of feel bad for having to do it, I think he's well intentioned with his enthusiasm based on his twitter profile, it's just watering down my experience here. No hard feelings, I just can't keep reading it.

It is one thing to post a twitter account, but when personal contact information gets published, that is something that will always cross the line here.  Rant and rave if you like, but we will be host to going after someone in an intimate setting.

I agree. I mean, if that guy made his own email address publically available, he should expect to get mocking emails when he's proven wrong, But if he didn't make his email address public and someone found it, that's wrong. And in general, it's a good idea to not harass people via email. Tag him in a tweet laughing at him and call it a day.
