The Tigers should try and sign Manny Machado

Recommended Posts

per Fangraphs, MM has provided an average value of $38m per year over the last 6 years

a contract at 8/240mm would be a steal

too bad Chris Ilitch is burdened with a $110mm payroll

Too bad Miguel Cabrera doesn't just retire so we don't have to pay him anymore.

If Machado signs anywhere near the White Sox offer a couple years from now when all these tanking teams are trying to contend they are going to be kicking themselves for not giving him that money.     Players like him at his age don't grow on trees.

8/240 would be an albatross for the last 3-4 years of the contract when he is providing less than $10MM of value per year.

He’s only 26.  Really think he’s going to fall apart at age 31-32?

You're right.  I thought he was 28.  On the positive side, he is nearly young enough to possibly be the son of Deuce.

I retract my earlier albatross comment.  Of course, there is still the chance of injury, but there always is.

That’s what makes him so attractive in free agency—even at 8 years, you’re not committing to his eventual decline like most lengthy contracts contain, I.e., Cabby.

He would have been just seven.  It seems unlikely, but it can't be ruled out.

Indeed he was. The teacher loved his water bed.
