    Cano off to great start

    .600 OBP as the Mariners score 26 runs in first 3 games.

    How's this lookin' so far, Yankee brass?

    Re: Cano off to great start

    They wasted 40M on a pitcher with 0 MLB experience and a soon to be 40yo pitcher who fell off a cliff last year...22M per for a 300/350/425 line until hes 37, 17M for an offensive catcher with questionable D and 16M per for a 37yo OF'er until he's 40 with knee issues and whos lost a step in the OF last year.

    How could they have possibly wanted a 320/400/500 player with GG D and 30HR power at an up the middle position, who was homegrown? Tanaka and Ells are only making 1-2M less per year. I think they could have afforded him and still spent their $$ better.

    I just dont think they spent very wisly AT ALL this year...

    What their depth loooking like if CC and Kuroda go down? whos backing up 2b and 3b and SS? Is Tanaka going to be as good as he was in Japan?

    I hope Robbie rakes this year.

    Girardi pinch-hit for his starting third baseman, Johnson, last night in the 7th inning, with Solarte, a kid who was having his first major league at-bat.  Solarte hit into a rally-killing double play.  Not a good sign when you're pinch-hitting for your starting 3B in the second game of the year.

    It's fun to look at stats after 2 days....but more informative after a full season....but perhaps not as fun.

    i am still shocked that the yankees got outbid on cano.  maybe i shouldnt be as going back to the george days he was always more interested in snagging other teams big name FA to get back pages for days.  i hope Cano hits 273 HR's this season.....

    First of all, you're right, we would have lambasted the Yankees no matter which way they went.  As Sox fans, that's what we do.  Guilty as charged.

    However, other events put this move in a different light.

    1) The Yankees took 200 million of the 240 million Cano didn't get, and spent it on 7 years of Ellsbury and 3 years of 37-year old Beltran.

    2) In light of Cabrera's extension at 31 million per year, and the estimates that Trout might be worth 35 million a year right now, the 240 million for Cano looks more reasonable.

    I have to wonder if there was something else going on here, either the Yankees suspect PED's or they just really didn't like Cano personally.

    perfect.

    looking forward to the response (if any) to this.  you know, something besides "Red Sox fans would've made fun of us if we signed him for $290MM"

    I thought the Yanks should have signed Cano and not Ells (if the choice came down to those two). 

    That said I've never believed you can judge these major deals that soon. Will take a few years probably to get a clear answer.

    The Yankees are in trouble. That lineup just isn't that scary, and the infield is going to be really bad.  If they sustain a few injuries (and all teams do) it's going to get very very ugly in NY.

    The one wild card is their pitching; which could be good but still has a multitude of questions: will CC revive his career? or continue on his downward spiral? can Kuroda do it for one more year at his age? he did slow down a LOT last year and is one year older.  Nova is good, but not great, can he replace CC at the top?  Tanaka could be really good, but will he be elite? he hasn't pitched one pitch in the U.S.  The Bullpen is VERY weak.  Robertson is a stud, and i think he will close out games well despite the bad track record there....but after that the pen is thin.

    NYY are in trouble....we've been hoping for this for the last few years and they always figure something out but this might be the year they actually stink. 

    2 years in a row....missed playoffs.

    Really, I could've sworn we were discussing "everyone has a right to their fun/opinion"

    Certainly seems like a slant on the Cano contract.

    I suspect that Tanaka is going to be very good.  But they really do have issues.  Phelps looked bad last night, and I can't believe Thornton is their late-inning lefty.

     Your prediction is as good as any. Way too early to form a accurate one. Pitching and health will determine who has a good season.

     On paper the Yankees have strong starters and a suspect BP. They are pinning their offensive success and a few aging stars. Bench isn't very deep.

     Given the choice (money/years) aside Cano would have been a better signing then Ell's, but those two factors can't be ignored.
