    They have absolutely zero need for Manny, so goddamn Beane needs to stop with the DH/1B/OF market.

        For $500,000 it's almost a good investment just to keep him away from other teams.

          At this point in his career, not really. Not like the A's are ready to stop other teams.

            I heard he did it on a dare.

            Which also makes Raul Ibanez getting a third year in his contract, the Ryan Howard extension and Danys Baez's existence make sense.
            Is that a rash?

              That doesnt mean Beane can't try to make the A's more exciting to watch. Baseball is a spectator sport you know.

                If he didn't have to sit out 50 games, I would agree. Your season could very well be over by June 1 or whenever around then he is eligible for return.

                • Beane probably signed him to sell tickets.

                    Which is right when the A's would need a boost in tickets. Employing one of the best right handed hitters of our generation just might give a little boost to those ticket sales when they would normally start to fall.

                    It would work similarly to Charlie O Finley trotting out the donkey back in the 70s.

                      I guess I just think the opposite. You guys could use a little boost anytime of the season. I think any attraction Manny might be bring would be stronger when every team is in first place and "has a chance". If the A's are 18-32 and 8-10 games out of first place, why would anyone go see Manny at that point?

                        Well regardless of their record, there will still be some speculation on it. People will probably buy tickets in advance.

                        But if Manny looks like ****, I got to wonder how long it lasts. Demographics could play a role in it too, if they market Manny well enough, you could get a Hispanic influence to come to the game.

                        The Broncos season tickets blew up when the Duggars ordered their tix for Tebowmania.

                          It seems a bit off to me even though I'm not sure what I don't like at this point.

                              Yes and no. I think they are still young enough. Matsui was #1 or #2 one year. That was stupid.
