Age may slow him down, but plenty of players have remained productive in adv age. A good example is David Ortiz. I mean do we really believe he is only 36-37? and he had a nice season last year hit .318 and had 23 homeruns even with injury and giving up on the Sox in Sept.
and I think Rodriguez is in better shape and is the better player. So I still could see a .280 25 Hr season with 100 RBIs coming from him for at least 2013..
Is that worth his 29 Million or whatever? HELL NO.. But it isn't worth giving up Cano to a team for free simply to rid ourselves of Arod.
If we trade Cano, which I would consider, I want some young prospect that rocks.

And why does it even matter if the team overpays for one year? They only want to give out one year deals so unless they were going to give Hamilton a 1 year/$40M deal it has no effect on the teams spending.
The team is going to have a very hard time replacing Swisher this offseason, good luck trying to replace Swisher and Granderson.
My tribute to edwin Encarrrrnacioooooon...... Been an amazing fantasy replacement whle arod was hurt
