    Completely agree. Not sure $13 mil would have locked him up. But 8 years/$150 sounds about right (get him for year 27 - 34).

    As with everything, there are 2 sides of every coin.
    on one side, you re-negotiate the deal and could get a better team friendly deal... on the other side, the player is bargaining from a position of strength and usually gets a deal that the team regrets later.

    As with anything, nothing is a one size fits all deal. In this case, the Yanks had a dealin place until 2014 and had no plans to have Robbie or anyone else try to make those years worth more (Boras' favorite thing to do)
    I mean we don't see a-rod coming to brian saying that he would like to renegotiate his contract because it is not comiserate to how he is playing... I wonder why that is.

    I tend to agree with NYY stance on this. For every 1 downside, there are 5 (7-10 if the agent is Scott Boras) upsides to the yankee policy. In robbies case, SB would have wanted to throw out the 2012 & 2013 options and have robbie paid at a higher rate and have the extention from there... which would have cost the Yanks more in both of those years... quite a bit more...

    He picked him up as his agent last year.

    ok, the first part is true still. the yankees can try to lock him up all they want, he might have wanted to wait until he hit free agency.

    Sabathia should be okay, elbow surgery or not.

    Kuroda/Pettitte? You might get them for one more year.

    After that, unless Banuelos is ready to take the next step, and Pineda comes back healthy and ready to roll, youre looking at:

    Sabathia
    Hughes
    Nova
    Phelps
    Manny/Pineda/???

    Yuck.
    banuelos had tommy john surgury. don't expect to see him next year

    While we're at it, why don't we trade Pettitte for Cabrera.

    C'mon people we gotta come back from the ledge.

    I have been saying for awhile that the Yanks should work out something this offseason with Cano and if it looks bad let him walk at the end of next season. Yanks would have gotten the best years out of him and would not be locked down in some huge contract. If he wants to rework his deal and sign for 5 with a team option for a 6th that makes more sense.
    Breanne Benson for Adam Dunn?

    I rarely agree with TrueYankee, but Cano deserves much scrotum.
