    I agree the Yanks don't have a ton of flexibility, but the offense was the difference between making the playoffs this year and not. A-Rod coming back doesn't stabilize the lineup and there is a...

    I really think so. This has the potential to be a huge deal.

    If Headley shows any sign of hitting, his defence alone merits an extension. With the pitching hopefully healthy next year, Jeter...

    There is hype around Bogaerts, I suppose my question is why?

    His minor league numbers are very routine, and he projects as a high-average infielder with potential/surprise power. He is not a...
  4. I agree. Most analysts I have read post-Tanaka...

    I agree. Most analysts I have read post-Tanaka signing are going out of their way to put the Yanks in third. Their basis is obvious - Yankees have questions at 1B, SS, and pitching, both rotation...
  5. Cano's position is hilarious. It makes no sense....

    Cano's position is hilarious. It makes no sense. I watched an interview he gave on cnnsi and he mentioned money approximately 35 times in 5 minutes.

    Cano then says the contract has nothing to...
  6. “Just a player like that, putting on the...

    “Just a player like that, putting on the pinstripes, and being able to play your whole career in New York means something, to me, obviously,” Sabathia said. “It didn’t mean that much to him. It’s a...
  7. He will be the face of a franchise that no one...

    He will be the face of a franchise that no one cares about. Oakland has put together a fantastic past few seasons, made the playoffs, is a great story and very few people outside of dedicated MLB...
  8. This was Jay-Z and Cano trying to make a splash. ...

    This was Jay-Z and Cano trying to make a splash. The marketing, endorsements, numbers and overall exposure will take a remarkable hit.

    You don't fault someone for taking that much money, but...

    Ya - I guess that's that. Cano to Mariners. At least when Jay-Z says he made the Mariner hat more famous than a Mariner can - he will be right!!

    Signing Kuroda was first step. Yankees...

    Not really a stupid comparison. Cano is not alarmingly marketable.
  11. Not yet sure of how I feel about the length and...

    Not yet sure of how I feel about the length and the avg. annual on this deal, but I don't think it ups the negotiating power for Cano.

    I believe the Yankees (finally) didn't take a...
  12. How everyone feels about Kuroda aside, is it not...

    How everyone feels about Kuroda aside, is it not alarming that as the organizational meetings are taking place, these are the names released? Both players are spring training signings. The Maholm...

    Quite true. An average offense would have got us in the playoffs this year. How many low-scoring games did we lose in May-June as the team was adapting to all the injuries.

    A lot of this is...
  14. I agree in part. I agree that the Yankees don't...

    I agree in part. I agree that the Yankees don't have to spend on the most expensive player to rebuild, and I agree that they should take a stance with Cano and other free agents and not wait around...
  15. True, but a bidding war was something I had hoped...

    True, but a bidding war was something I had hoped the Yankees would avoid. Whether that is possible I doubt, but nevertheless I personally think the Tigers will be the big competition, particularly...
  16. In response to above - I really think that...

    In response to above - I really think that missing out on Guerrero puts the Yankees in a bad spot negotiating with Cano.

    Also....I don't think Headey is very good. Last season seems to be an aberration

    If we trade for Headley, McCann will be signed as Sanchez would be part of the deal. I don't think we have the prospects to make this deal, but it's a thought.
  21. I agree - he will go for well over market value. ...

    I agree - he will go for well over market value. However - at $30 million a year I would sign Guerrero and hope I can fill holes with the remaining $25 million. Perhaps I am spoiled and...
  22. Pedroia was $110 million over 8 years I believe. ...

    Pedroia was $110 million over 8 years I believe. I preface this by saying that from a biased Yankee fan's prospective - I dislike Pedroia very much but, they are not significantly different from a...
  23. Not that I thought there was a place for him on...

    Not that I thought there was a place for him on the roster, but again, I think this off-season will be Cliff Lee 2.0 We will wait for Cano to make a decision and by then, if he doesn't stay, we will...

    One step closer to that rotation?

    I agree that's the hopeful end result. I do not see anyone going to 8 years, and if they do, let Cano walk.

    I am concerned that this off-season will play out like the last few, where all the time...
