In response to mfymfy's comment:
It may have been as simple as "We didn't win with him last year, so we can lose without him as well " By now , it's bible that the Yanks DNA is to always go for the ring. Not smart baseball to give him $300M and still have holes. I haven't met a single Yankee fan who's pining for Cano after seeing how the winter has turned out (and I'm sure not done yet). The departure was probably sealed when the Yanks had $25M per year on the table (7 for $175M) and his dad said, "It seems like the Yankees don't really want him." After that, NY FO knew it was all about the money and little to do with being a Yankee. After that, it seemed like "Don't let the door hit you on the way out".
Thats funny I live here in CT and most of my Yankee fan friends are VERY dissapointed that Cano left team.
no one I know
some, like myself, might of been a tad dissapoint but could C what was going on
seattle was not going 2B denied
others, not me, actually didn't want him back because of his lackadaisical style
The way Yankees have spent money this winter whats another 240 mil?
IMO Yankees insulted him when they gave Ells 153
not just your opinion
more like a RSN talking point
like dgale said yanks had already gave up on cano when they signed johnny jr
and wouldn't go to 200 for him [which he admitted he would have signed for in NY].
many think yanks would of gone to 200 but
yanks were told noway 200 was going to get it done
Will have to wait and see how that turns out, they already had a CF, now they don't have a 2nd baseman?
that is true
Lets wait til first time Cano comes back to Yankee Stadium and see if Yankee fans really don't care that he left.
and how will we know that ?
nobody hated the guy
all that said the yanks biggest fear of resigning cano
was that those RSP's would come back
