I say let the Mariners have Cano.  That being said, I would also send Severino, Judge. Bird. and the rest of them to the Mariners for cash considerations. With all of them off the Yankees' backs, when they all become mega-superstars and start commanding fat salaries, they won't be our headaches anymore.  The Yankees might suck at that time, but they will be able to come in under the luxury tax cap!    




If we could only find 8 more Stephen Drew's to fill the lineup we'd be on target for the cap and we'd have a great club house full of likeable guys. 




Fortunately, players of that caliber are easy to find and acquire. 




Well what the hell are they waiting for???? FIND US 8 MORE DREWS HAL. NOW!!!!

Cano's stats.




.278 AVG  Would be .001 lower than the Yankees batting average leader Beltran .279.
.326 OBP  Would be 7th on the Yankees .002 below McCann who is 6th.
.428 SLG  Would be 6th on the Yankees .001 behind Gardner.
.754 OPS  Would be 6th on the Yankees.
95 K's       Would be 4th on the Yankees.
63 RBIs    Would be 5th on the Yankees 2 behind Gardner.


Compared to the Yankee hitters Cano's stats are middle of the road for the most part but his batting average is just about at the top.But now let's factor in that Cano plays is home games in a pitcher's park and the Yankees play their home games in a hitter's park. Chances are that his stats would have been better if he was a Yankee. Let's not forget that on the Yankees Cano would be one of their best fielders, if not the best. 


The Yankees haven't been the same since he left and the Yankee lineup misses his bat. Cano is lazy running out a ground ball. But that's where it starts and that's where is ends, because he worked hard to become a good hitter and fielder.

Max, I agree... Cano's number might be lousy, but put him in the Yankee lineup and they LEAD the A.L. east ! However, NOT worth the cost AND he made his choice to leave dispite an offer of a higher annual salary... Don't want that kind of "team mate" in the locker room.



Life is better when the Yankees win !

I'd agree if he had shown what he could do. He didn't in his last season with us when the opportunity existed for him to takeover the leadership role.


It appeared, as it does now, he does not want that.


His play in the last year with us, was subpar to what was expected, both in the field and at the plate.


Cano was not a difference maker to this team and as you can see, he is not a difference maker with his current team.


The man has no motivation to be the best or even close to it.


Granted Drew is batting just barely above .200, but he has more home runs than Cano does this year and 1 more error than Cano at 2B.


Of course we need to do far better than Drew, but Cano made no indelable mark on this team that can't be replaced.

My opinion remains the same. The Yankees haven't been the same since Cano left. I don't blame him for signing that contract, and I don't blame the Yankees for not offering him that amount of money.

Jeter is a leader. Cano is not. But let's not overlook a few things. In his last season with the Yankees Cano hit .314 had 27 HRs and 107 RBIs. No Yankee player this season is coming close to that batting average and might not even come close to those RBI totals. In his last season with the Yankees Cano also finished 5th in the MVP voting just as he did last season with the M's. Cano is now batting .280, which would lead the Yankees. Just say'in.

I agree with your first sentence. As for the money part, my guess is that the majority of the players in MLB would have did the same thing as Cano.

Cano had no chance of Netting more from the Yankee offer than he will with the Mariner deal.  The final years he will be paid for previous contributions unless he uses steroids.

It's the new "worst contract in baseball". For all the complaining about the A-Rod deal it's actually not that bad in terms of the production that he's provided. Obviously nobody is worth that kind of money but I'll take A-Rod and his contract over Cano's any day.

    I disagree strongly. I think they all would. For $240 M dollars, I think Hal would rename Yankee Stadium after Pedro Martinez ! That is a lot of money !
