But this isn't MLB the Show.. no reason to even discuss a deal for Mike Stanton or Mike Trout (seriously?).. it's simply just a waste of time.. Stanton was never on the block because he is cheap.
But your original point that it is worth dealing Cano for nothing just to unload Arod was terrible and a bad baseball move. Sure Arod's contract is bad, but the team will live. No reason to lose our best hitter/starting 2nd baseman just to do that and NO Nunez cannot replace Cano or Arod.
And seriously if you want to talk Yankee bonehead moves Arod doesn't even scrap the surface.. Pitching has produced WAY more disastrous failures Wright, Burnett, Igawa, Contreras, Carol Freaking Pavano.
I think people need to get off Arod's nuts he wasn't even the worst hitter of the post season for our team and he will bounce back just fine. is he worth the price, HELL NO, but this it's the Yankees this isn't the first time they have overpaid for a player.

Angels in the mix:
Yankees LoHudIf Hiroki Kuroda wants to return to Los Angeles, the Dodgers might not be his only option.
According to Jon Heyman, the Angels have also entered into the market for Kuroda. There’s also still a chance that Kuroda will decide to pitch in Japan, and reports have also put the Red Sox in the mix.
For the Yankees, Kuroda seems to be the most important target on the market. His willingness to sign a one-year deal means he fits perfectly with their cost-cutting plans for 2014, and his production this season suggests he’s a reliable No. 2 starter to fill the hole at the top of the Yankees rotation.
If not Kuroda, who? Aside from Andy Pettitte, all of the impact starters on the market seem certain to sign long-term deals, which hurts the Yankees chances significantly.
Miggy wins MVP. Huge step backwards for baseball considering these moron writers are still judging players based on three stats alone. Trout had the superior season.
Angels miss playoffs with or without trout.
Tigers come in last without miggy.
Leo's Thought Of The Day
Statistics are used much like a drunk uses a lamppost: for support, not illumination.
Oh and the Angels had the best record in baseball once Trout was called up. Clearly his fault they missed the playoffs though!
I'm glad Miggy won the MVP. I'm not liking this entire shift in judging players worth based on these stats analyses. They are useful but not what everyone should be judged on. Miggy was the heart of the Tigers lineup and their offensive force. He was their most valuable player and of the league. Trout was good, Cabrera was MVP.
