Would anyone make an 8 year $200 million dollar offer for Manny?

Yes, probably half the teams in the league if not more. I think he gets more in both years and AAV.

So your thinking 10 years at $300 mil?

Yeah, that's closer to what I'd expect.

Something below $30M but for even more years wouldn't be surprising to me. Players his age rarely hit free agency, so we could see a contract of rare length.

I also think he will have an opt out after 3 years. That's when the CBA expires, I think guys will want another bite at the apple after the new deal comes into palace in case it's even more favorable to players which is the way things always go.

If Manny Machado, at his age, with his talent and skills, and with the money flowing through MLB right now, receives less than that in either years or money, I might have to quit a sport for a while. Because the sport will have proven to be far more broken than even the currently-worried believe it is, and I would rather watch from a distance as those who run the sport close on the brick wall they are heading for, with the gas pedal jammed to the floor.

Passan reporting that an 8 year deal is on the table from the White Sox. No dollar amount mentioned. I would guess around 250M.

Nightengale is saying the WS haven’t increased their original 7 year offer.
