Manny needs knee surgery

You'd have to be insane to redo his deal now. He'd be insane to redo his deal now.


If we redid his deal now (he is not arbitration eligible until 2016 / free agent until 2019), we'd be paying him millions more over the next 5 years than we'd have to. Worth it? Perhaps. But still simply money you don't have to spend.


For him, he'd be taking exceptionally low value. He is smart enough to wait until later, when he's got more gold gloves, more all-star appearances, (hopefully a few rings and a few MVPs), ... and then he can really cash in.

If they lock him down to a 10 yr deal now giving him a raise but not waiting until when he gets to FA and gets $25 mil a yr. Maybe they can do his deal at $15 mil a yr now. It would work against Manny's interest. It would be like the Longoria contract. It worked very well for the Rays. If they don't sign him long term I don't think Manny will be an O for life.
