5 years $85 million will get you some Manny being Manny (1 Viewer)

Radio today reported it will take a five year deal at $85 million for Manny. This parallels the release of A-Rod info during last year's World Series. This strike anyone else as premature and possibly distracting to the Dodgers?

 
not distrascting since a 4yr/100 million deal was his expected price when he left boston.

at 38 years old i dont think anyone will give him a 5 year deal. Although the Yankees are dumb enough to do it.

i bet he signs 2 years 50 mill with an option for a 3rd

 
So they are saying they'd settle for $17 mill a season?

I tend to believe this is BS since he quit on his former team and got his trade all to get the club options at $20 million per dropped.

I doubt they would have done all that all to take $3 million per year less....

It's all about multiple years. This is probably Manny's last big contract. He and Boras are looking more at aggregate contract value than anything else.

Sure, from Manny's perspective, a guaranteed 5 years at $85 million is much better than two individual option years at $20 each especially when you factor in possible injury, age, market conditions, etc..
 
As a Dodgers fan, I wouldn't want the team to give him more than 3 years for $60 million max. I'd prefer 2 years for $40 mil. Perhaps they can put in a team option for a fourth year.

 
If my Rays cannot make the WS, I'm pulling for the Dodgers and Manny to win it all, and clinch it in Boston.

My hatred for the Nation runs deep......

He's 36 right now.I don't know why an AL team wouldn't go for it.

For all the talk about him breaking down physically, Manny still has 500+ PAs every years since the strike. He's a guy who'll be able to hit as long as he can walk from the dugout to the batters box. If he and Boras want a four year deal, they'll probably be able to find some team who'll offer one.

Bat speed declines at this age without the help of "medicine"If he's making 17m as a 40 year old with a slow bat, it will be ugly. He was already showing signs of it in Boston and was unable to handle a good high fastball any longer. Admittedly, I've lost the day to day scouting of him now that he's on the left-coast but I remember Tampa feeding him nothing but fastballs and he couldn't do much with them this year.

Sheffield is the poster boy for this scenario
 
But on the way to the exam, Ramirez, according to sources, couldn't remember which knee was sore. So the Red Sox had both of his knees examined. The MRIs revealed no damage in either.
:pics:It really doesn't get much better than that. God love that guy as a hitter...he is among the best hitters I've ever seen. But, what a friggin' meathead.

Yep. Unbelievable for a guy getting paid $20 million especially in these times for the average guy. This guy "quit" repeatedly. Boston "spin"? Bah, humbug!
