Let Cano walk. There are to many overpriced high contracts on the team that are handcuffing what the team can do. I can live with 3 - 4 losing years if it gets the Yankees back to another run of 10+ playoff years.

1 year perhaps....3-4 losing years????  That's not going to happen.  Yankees as an organization would take a hit financially with oodles of empty seats.  

Always proud to be a Yankee fan.

That's easy to fix. Lower the tickets back to where real fans can go and see the games and there won't be empthy seats. If teams with multiple losing years can stay afloat so can the Yankees.

You want Yankees to become the NY Mets???  It ain't going to happen.  Wishful thinking on your part...Even with lowered prices, a bad team is a bad team....empty seat abounds...evidence in Citifields.  Irregardlessly, those loyal diehard fans continues to watch from afar.

Always proud to be a Yankee fan.

Then you do a rebuild, and get what you can for those contracts (Dodgers?), and build your team around the best talented player they got and CC.

The Yankees will wait until after the season and:


If Cano has a great year the Yankees won't be able to afford him


If he has a mediocre year they will hesitate and another team will sign him first


If he has a bad year they won't want to sign him


 


I have a feeling all the free agent Yankees will have good to great seasons.

6/$150 gives them 2-3 years of high quality but probably declining 2B and 3 - 4 years of overpriced OF/DH.  But they can live with that.  Anything more than 6 years has ARod/Teixeira written all over it.

tickets were cheap in the 80's and yankee stadium was a ghost town then.

Anyone think this is realistic?  He's not exactly honest when he stated his approaching FA is not on his mind.....  His focus on the present season is in regards to delivering great numbers for his free agency in the following season..  so it's all interconnected.  Great season=$$$$$$ in FA


Is Robinson Cano feeling any nerves as he enters his contract year?


“I’m going to be honest with you guys; I’m just focused right now on the season. Just prepare myself, get ready for the season and help the team win another championship. I’m not thinking about anything. Those kind of things, I’ll just let my agent, Scott, handle it. I’ll just have fun in the clubhouse and get ready to help the team win another championship.” 

Always proud to be a Yankee fan.

Probably more true than not.  Cano has a happy go lucky attitude that, unfortunately, often manifests itself in not hustling.  But he has to know that barring a major injury or a total disaster of a season (say, .240/15/70) he is going top be a very rich young man a year from now.

Like Rob said and to the question Lauren posted, Cano will make out just fine for himself whether it's with the Yankees or with another team. There will be no cut-backs in Cano's future.
