    Why are we talking about pitching, we're fine with that. What hurt us in the playoffs was our offense...

    I tend to agree that we are in no position to sign Cano to a 10 or 8 year deal for $22 to $25 per yr. But, if we lose him, our chances of winning in the short-term are unlikely and we should probably blow up our entire roster.

    1. Cano to Marlins for a package led by Giancarlo Stanton.
    2. Sabbathia to Texas for a package of young players headlined by Profar so
    we finally get a young shortstop for the future.
    3. Granderson and Hughes in a 3 team deal to bring us Justin Upton.
    4. Mark Teixeira to Washington for a package of young MLB ready players.
    5. Swisher leaves via FA and we take a pick. Save the cash to be applied
    later.
    6. Soriano leaves via FA and we take a pick. Save the cash to be applied
    later.
    7 A-Rod is moved with significant salary relief for a bag of balls.

    FYI - I realize that no of the above will happen. But, it would be interesting to rid ourselves of all of our long-term salary commitments ala the Boston Red Sox.

    I would be ok with this. Unfortunately the Yankees dont operate like that. This is one way to find out who the "real" fans are.

    You do realize that Cano will eventually be an "over the hill superstar" during the middle term of that 10 year contact, right? He would also be an over the hill superstar getting paid 20 million.

    only 10 years ago when PED's ruled the show, star players stayed stars until 40 years of age... prior to and since the end of the PED era, most players start looking old at 35. I would not give anybody big money for years past age 35. There will always be exception (Derek), but much safer to give 1 and 2 year deals for those guys after then.

    I would put him on the block, and only trade him if the right deal is there. The Yanks will make a big enough offer that even if he walks, the Yanks will get decent draft picks. If they trade him, the target team can't get that same level.

    I just dont want the Yankees bidding against themselves again. Boras is a snake and he will use other teams against us even when said teams may not even be involved. This could get ugly.

    Why not trade him and then try to resign him in 2014? Clever eh?
