Why do people just automatically assume a meeting with Harper = he's signing? They haven't had a face to face meeting with him yet correct? I would be shocked if he signs tomorrow. 

Yeah I dont get where that expectation came from.

I think the Tuesday/Wednesday window seems more likely. Boras for one will want full attention, not the big story after the NFL Playoffs. 

For me the signing would be bigger news than the NFL Playoffs.

Does Boras really care about that?

Anyone other than me remember when ARoid announced he was opting out of his contract right in the middle of the 07 world series final game with the Red Sox?

$30M is a ton of money. I don’t blame him.

It’s a ton of money, but money he will never spend. I don’t blame players for taking the highest offer, but at some point, it all becomes the same in really. I get parents want to leave their kids on easy street. But you also want them to be useful members of society. Manny should hav plenty to leave his kids. Right now it is about records and ego which is fine.

Yeah it was enough to get the broadcasters to start talking about it mid-game. Spectacular move.

I agree in some respects. But $260M, turns into $130M pretty quick. I wouldn’t be so quick to assume that Manny won’t put that money to use at some point in his life.

Could very well be right, but do you gamble that?  If numbers and years are not as high as earlier thought (300 mil and 10 years), you may have a team (like the Cardinals possible hail mary earlier reported) jump in last minute because numbers are low.

I don't think the Cardinals are in on him (other than the offer Dave reported) because it seems like everything they do is leaked. I don't feel like they would be the "mystery" team, rather people would just hear the Cardinals are now in.

1. Is Manny gonna sign with us? (Lol)

2. If we are indeed interested in Harper, if Manny signed with us first would that end the Harper interest or could we sign both?

3. Basically anything and everything lol

This seems to imply that at the very least, the offer will be 7-year, $210 million. Something in the 8-year, $240 million range seems like what it will end up being.

It’ll be funny if it ends up 6/$210M and Ken Rosenthal tweets it officially and has to say “Fake @JefPassan first
