Manny: Nope, still no news

Recommended Posts

Dan's problem was that, for some reason, he trusted Manny's former teammate (possibly Delmon Young) as a legitimate source.  As if Delmon Young would have any clue about the Yankee's interest or the status of negotiations.  And then he stated Machado to Yankees as if it was 100% fact.

More like he took a shot in the wind thinking Manny to Yankees was the likeliest of outcomes but failed miserably. good riddance ya fraud.

And if you approached the Yankees with an offer of 1 year of Abreu and someone like Basabe or Gonzalez you'd be laughed out of the room. If we reversed the situations and that's all the Sox got for Andujar you'd be ranting about how Hahn got fleeced again.

If we traded Alex Colome for Omar Narvaez, we'd never hear the end about how we should have gotten more and Narvaez is awful defensively.

It wasn't even the reporting. It was the double and tripling down on it by being a huge twat

I mentioned that I thought was fair - Abreu and a 2nd tier prospect.
Andujar was not an elite prospect (50ish); he had a good year - kind of Palka with an extra 30 OBP points.  He played his position poorly.  The Sox would take the risk that he can never play 3B.

If the Sox sign Machado, which one would think is no worse than 50/50 at this point, and if he stays at 3B, then it's moot.

Holy crap, if we got that deal, I would drive Jose to the airport so fast his head would spin.

I am disappointed that we dont get a chance to see the texts or dms that he promised to show when the yankees signed him. I am really curious how his source worded it to the extent that Dan believed 100% it was true.

Exactly.  He could have said he felt confident and he trusted his source and left it at that.  Instead he was a douche and got douchier as each day passed.

Although I’m all about roasting that dan Clark dude because I actually believed him too, I won’t until manny is a whitesox. It would not surprise me in the slightest if the Yankees tried to trade Andujar for some pitching then come right back into the manny sweepstakes

Multiple sources are reporting Dan Clark is a fool.   

I gonna need some independent verification from the national writers first.

Interesting here Lauber doesn't even mention white sox, just yanks as machado competition.

I dont understand why the Phillies media and fans are putting off this superior vibe this entire negotiation process. How the hell do they think they are some kind of wonderful destination? What have they done lately or ever?

A decision is close    NYY out now on Manny and Dodgers out for Harper.  Manny’s agent has to take offer before Harper’s meeting tomorrow.   If Phillies sign him Manny only has Sox as an option maybe Phillies but doubtful.  Not the same for Harper who has Nationals out there if White Sox are out.   Sit back, relax and strap it down.  It’s very close.

Think it's the "stupid money" quote. But I agree there's a much better shot to continually be in the postseason here vs the NL East. Way way less competition.

Nah, Dan was definitely a real person. He wasnt a bad follow up until him putting out bad info. He was generally a knowledgeable baseball follow and decent human being from what I could tell. Then this whole thing blew up on him and it showed the worst in him along with it. 

I actually liked Dan Clark previously and would follow his work. He has been a disaster this offseason and doubled down on what was obviously BS info.

Hey, at least he is eating it and deleted his account?

Way to man up, DanClarkSports. Better to burn out than fade away.

After some recent talk here about some seriously bad music, now someone is speaking my language!

Why do people think Harper will sign with the Phillies tomorrow? I don't think that's how it works. IF he gets an offer, he will surely do his due diligence and talk to the other teams to see if they can match or better the offer.
