What to do with Robinson Cano.....

    Re: What to do with Robinson Cano.....

    The Yankees should give Cano 10 years.  When he's too old to play 2B they can just move him to short, and everybody will marvel at how sure his hands are when balls are hit directly to him.

    I would not make that offer, If I were the GM of the Red Sox. The Yankees can absorb it.

    The Yankees need to bring an action to void A-Roid's contract. They need to be prepared to send up to 90% of A-Roid's contract costs to get rid of him. Miami would be a great fit for him, as he ends his Union "service". He's an albatross with a broken wing, casting a dark shadow.  




    Gee we do have a few things we agree on.

    I love the way people throw around millions of dollars like it was chicken feed.

    As far as I'm concerned, the financial structure of baseball is ruining the game to its core.

     




     

    Like how many million does one man need?

    Hello ampoule  :)

    I am not trying to change your mind because I respect your opinion. 

    I agree with you--the player's salaries are outrageous.  But so are other professions such as a movie star like Tom Cruise or an entertainer like Oprah.  Isn't Oprah a billionaire?  I am happy with my six-figure annual income.  If I wanted to make a seven or eight-figure annual income, I would have tried to be a professional baseball player but my fastball clocks at only 25 to 30 mph.  LOL 

    I also agree with you that ticket prices are too high for the average American family.  Like yourself, I am also lucky to go see a Red Sox game.  I do not mind paying extra from a nearby BU or BC student who wants to make extra cash (a lot of them sell their tickets on craigslist)LOL

    My point is this, it is not just baseball where the financial structure is unfair.  It exists in every sector-private, public, government, and even academic.

     

     

     




    Good points.....absolutely true.  In hollywood, we need more Eastwoods, Voights, Sellecks, Woods et.al....LOL

    In response to softlaw2's comment:

    If I were the GM for the Yankees, I would offer Cano four years and 120 million, with a team option for a fifth year and a 1M buyout and a player opt out of the team option.

    This makes Cano the highest paid player in MLB history, per season.

    The Yankees massively overpay for his labor at age 31, 32, 33 and 34, (his best cluster of seasons is already behind him)  but do not pay a worthless roster asset for years beyond that.

    If he demands more guaranteed money, spend it elsewhere if another big market teams makes the mistake.

     



    He turns it down without thinking about it.

    the 1st thing i would do with cano is hire someone to knock that stupid smirk off his face.




    Cano has a stupid smirk because he hired Scott Boras.

    I read a quote from Cano months back where he said he wasn't going to give the Yankees a discount this time, that he wanted a 10 year deal.

    I see Dodger blue if he sticks to his ten year demand.



    And how many times did you tell me I was wrong on the ARod deal?

    BTW, I think the NYY should sign Cano to that 9-year deal he wants.

    And that has nothing to do with me hating the EE.

    Yeah Joe, before Arod was revealed to be a cheat probably numerous times.

    And lets not forget if Arod was clean it was expected at the end of the contract he would have been rescuing the homerun title from the then known cheats before we knew he was one too..

    That homerun race was expected to generate hugh revenue for the Yankees.

    Put him on calcium and magnesium supplements IMMEDIATELY, so his old fragile bones don't turn to plaster of paris like poor Granderson.

    I don't know of too many players who could have been protected from a beanball by using calcium magnesium supplements.

    Tony Conigliaro would not have been neither could have Curtis Granderson.

    You can pretty much only break the record on one day.  The best you get is sellouts for a week or two for Aaron and Bonds, maybe Ruth.  Increased TV ratings as well for a week or two each time.  And since they are mostly sold out, it isn't a lot of extra tickets.

    And everyone knew he was cheating.

    Wrong, he'll definitely think about it.

    Now, have you done any thinking about who makes this 31 year old a bigger deal. We'll need specifics on teams and offer(s).

     



    Not a lot of thinking on the alternatives.  It depends on how the season plays out.

    I'd say the primary target would be SF.  They have $62M coming off the books, and have three very good SPs, so it would make sense to split the money between hitting and pitching, and 2B was a weakness for them last year.  If LA beats them out this year, all the more reason.

    Detroit needs a 2B and would like have room in their budget.

    On the Cano side, I think the starting point would be $22M*7.  It's difficult to imagine that, with Pujols and Fielder getting $240M and $214M, and with Cano being better than them, how does he not get $150M+?  Even Hamilton, who is a huge risk, get $125M/5, how do you not go 6 years with Cano.

    But



    Name me your top 5 players in baseball you would love to have on your team and tell me Robbie is one of them. And you would pay him(a 2nd baseman?) $30mill a year?  Ludicrous! 

     

    He deserves C.C. type money($180 at max) at age 30.... no more.  8 years.

    I'll take Trout, Fielder, Braun, Verlander, Votto, Miggy, Kershaw, Posey, Strasburg, at this point in their careers long before I would take Robbie.  And he deserves $30mill at soon to be 31 years old?  Glad to have Pedie.  Good luck with that MFY.

    I would not go more than 5 years... and only if I am New York do I overpay him for those 5 years. If I am any other team I obviously would rather use that money differently.

     

    I am curious 2see if the Yankees bid against themselves once again.

    The Angles already regret the Pujols contract which is why they doubled down on Hamilton. All or nothing for them.
