Manny: Enter the Panic Room

Recommended Posts

6/26 is my birthday, and I used to see 626 so often in my life that my friends all started noticing and sending me pictures of times they would encounter it. So.... I'll throw my hat in the ring at page 626.

Really thinking of starting from page 1 of this thread and reading all the amusing comments we have made over the last months. Maybe by the time I'm done, he will sign somewhere.

All I got is if Iowa can mount a 15 point comeback with 4:32 left against NW and Missouri State can beat Illinois State like they did yesterda with the wildest play of the season....then the White Sox can sign two whales, too.

Mark Texiera was on one of the ESPN morning shows today, and he went into detail about feeling sorry for Machado/Harper because the big market teams are not bidding for them, even saying that they possibly do not want to play for any of the teams that are making offers.

See, I'll say MM signs before 700. This thread was flying but it's somewhat slowed. It feels like it got to 350 quickly but it's been slower to get to 600. I say Machado signs between today and 2/20.

If that is the case

They should contract twenty teams

They do not matter

Really feel sorry for these guys.  Must really suck only getting $250M and not getting to play for the Yankees, Red Sox, Dodgers, or Cubs.  Sometimes life just isn’t fair I guess.

Paring off a heavy hitter like Peavy44 was a tough blow to the thread post count but we will persevere

Sometimes you just need to pout in Texas before you are traded to the Yankees

Might as well make it a 4 team league with the Yankees, Red Sox, Dodgers, and Cubs and just get rid of the 26 other teams then!

Then there lies the problem.  This would suggest that the players are as much to blame for this FA mess as the owners.  If they all want a big market team then why don’t we just can most of the teams in this league and go with an 8-team super league.  It’s comments like Texiera’s that prove there’s more to this than owners manipulating profits.  Guys turning down hundreds of millions of dollars cause...sniff sniff...”it’s not the Yankees...” 

Just makes me love our 05 team even more.  They just showed up and played baseball better than you.

the high fly ball that 

never comes down

Yep.  And then agents complain about smaller market teams choosing to pare back for a rebuild.

I've seen a bunch of Tweets and articles saying the Sox offered 8 years and $250M.  Was this new information or just based on what Gomez had said in the past?
