    Funny how you get really quiet about this when Ellsbury is struggling and only mention it after he gets back on a hot streak…

    So in short your entire argument is that the Yankees owed, "something" to Cano and that they refused to extend him an offer of a decade long contract it amounts to either failing or negotiating in...

    Identifying a spending limit in both AAV and overall length on a player is not "negotiating in bad faith."

    Nor is negotiating aggressively while utilizing the signing or potential signing of...

    Narrative is a powerful thing.

    Robinson Cano has been one of the most consistent, durable, and productive players in baseball since he hit the majors.

    But because he does not run-out every...

    The comparisons I keep hearing indicate Castillo is very much a Gardner-type player with additional power.

    Think of it this way:
