    Evidently Manny Will Have To Settle For Peanuts

    Thursday, February 5, 2009

    Spring training countdown
    6 days: 00 hours: 00 mins

    Evidently Manny Will Have To Settle
    For Peanuts.

    Hitting is not the problem right now.

    Fielding is not the problem right now.

    Age is not a problem right now.

    Theo is not the problem right now.

    Desire is not the problem right now.

    Willingness is not the problem right now.

    Bill-806 is not the problem right now.

    But for some unknown reasons...
    Manny Ramirez maybe the best
    hitter in baseball will have to
    settle for peanuts, if he really
    wants to play ball in 2009...

    yeah, my heart just bleeds for him, the guy has wonderous talents and a great work ethic, somehow it doesn't seem to keep him from thinking only about himself sometimes, FWIW this Yank fan is glad he won't be killing us this season ;-)

    Somehow , I don't think so.

    Mainly becuase the issue may be more about a multi-year contract than money.

    The Dodgers have already made a two year and a one year offer.

    ...for slightly more than a few peanuts, I think the amount was around 25 million per year.

    He is not going to sign for peanuts. The bar has been set. $25mil for one year or $45mil for two. He wants four years. Someone is going to offer him 3-4 years at $15-$18mil per and he will have to take it. I don't consider that peanuts

    I am completely perplexed right now with the Manny saga! I know I shouldn't be because it is Manny but I don't understand. I don't know why Manny would turn down $25 million and I don't know why the Dodgers would offer anything more than a 1 year deal. Manny quit on the Sox last year and I am really hoping it comes back to haunt him.

    Manny will be making between 75 to $95mil
    less than what he was original seeking.
    in other words "peanuts"

    I'm feeling like Manny will end up on the Dodgers, two years at $45M-$50M. The Dodgers are not going to attempt to penalize him for not signing earlier, they want him. Manny wanted a four year deal, the market said "no." He's not going to take $60M/4yrs now. IMO, he'll take the two years and start looking for a big DH salary in 2011.

    Your're comparing a five year contract to one year. It's apples and oranges.

    Plus, the numbers thrown out originally are classic Boras throwing out a higher number to eventually land on a lower number.

    Manny will make a ton of money, and, he'll most likely be great for the next two years. I still believe he may be hoping for an AL team to surface so he can DH.

    I'm pretty sure the Manny strategy orchestrated by Boras goes like this:

    If Manny can get enough, he'll sign with the Dodgers. "Enough" being defined as a minimum 3 year deal, $70 million or so.

    If he can't get enough, he waits. Some team that THINKS at this time they have a good offense (like the Yankees, for example), when faced with the spring training reality that their offense s ucks (if that's how it plays out), will perhaps be interested in Manny at megabucks.

    Desperate teams will lie deal with the devil if they think it's necessary to salavage the season.

    Does anyone want to bet he gets 2 years from the LAD at 20M per year? There is also word that the SF Giants are ready to offer 2 years but its just sources indicating this. The Dodgers have made it very public that they want Manny but just not a long term deal. I say he gets his 2 years at 20M.

    [/Quote] Still $40 mil is not 100 mil, Manny
    will be losing a lot of money if he sign
    for $40 mil. Remember the original plan
    was at least $120 mil contract

    Well at least you've admitted that smiley=batman.

    Only thing accomplished in his 164316th thread saying the same thing.

    Dude. We get it. You don't like the Yanks. You don't like Manny.

    Do we need new threads EVERY DAY to confirm this?

    You have been wrong a number of times. I suspect you will be wrong about Manny and the Sox.

    I wouldn't start a thread like this one.

    Because however many "peanuts" Manny gets will be a lot more than what I am getting.
