I WISH THEY HAD A "HUSTLE CLAUSE" IN HIS CONTRACT.

ACTUALLY, I WISH EVERYBODY HAD THAT CLAUSE, PUNISHABLE BY A DEDUCTABLE HELD IN A "MINI-POOL" OF AN INTEREST BEARING ACCOUNT THAT THE PLAYER NEVER COLLECTS UNTIL HIS CONTRACT ENDS.

YOU TURN AN OFF THE WALL DOUBLE INTO A SINGLE?

YOU LOSE $5,000.

YOU PULL A SANCHEZ AND LOAF TO FIRST THAT COSTS THE TEAM?...$5,000.

YOU DO AN EXAGGERATED JOGGIE DOWN THE LINE?...$5,000.

LETS USE REPLAY TO "ENSURE THE QUALITY OF THE GAME" AND HIT THESE MILLIONAIRE PRICKS WHERE IT HURTS.

IN THE WALLET.

(ALTHOUGH THEY WOULD BARELY FEEL THE PINCH).

So, did anything happen?

13 BIT...

MANNY WAS THERE FOR AN HOUR AND A HALF...

THEN HE LEFT.

I DON'T KNOW.

AN HOUR AND A HALF SEEMS TOO SHORT AN AMOUNT OF TIME FOR SOMEONE LOOKING FOR $300 MILLION DOLLARS, DOESN'T IT?

THAT'S MY TAKE...

90 minutes does seem like a very short time. On the other hand, 90 minutes seems like a very long time if both sides already know what they want to do going in.

How many times can you say 20 million a year, and hear back 30 million a year, and dither over 25, 27.5, or a lifetime supply of Little Debbie cakes? Or 10 years and 8 years or 12 years? Because that's all it comes down to.

It takes about 5 minutes to figure that shit out if both sides are willing, and that includes getting a Shasta from the vending machine outside Cashman's office and maybe taking a leak in the spacious executive washroom. Unless Manny likes rappelling and the talk veers to ropes and winches and pullys. Then, sure, extra time for bonding over that.

But 90 minutes. Either the thing is completely up in the air or he met the entire Stadium staff including the cockroaches in the nachos booth.

Hard to gauge.

Apparently, Manny, his wife, and his agent then had dinner with "the Yankee brass" at night. But...so had Corbin.
