    Whether they can afford to sign Cano in free agency is irrelevant to whether they would make that trade. They can not make that trade and still sign Cano after 2013 if they want him that badly.
    Well this is strictly hypothetical because these two teams never would make a deal like this, or at least highly unlikely.

    But why do you keep insisting it would be a 1 year rental? BOS would obviously make the trade to build around Cano, not to just let him go.

    Cano is very unlikely to make it to FAgency, so no, chances are BOS can't just sign him outright in 2013.

    Because it would be just a 1 year rental, and there is about a 99% chance that Cano does make it to free agency. He is under contract for 2013 and then he's a free agent. The only thing preventing that from happening is if he comes to some kind of agreement with the Yankees this winter on an extension but the Yankees seem to have a policy against extending soon to be free agents before their contracts actually expire. They didn't do it with Jeter or Mo, and there's been no indication they will do it with Cano.

    On top of all that, Cano is represented by Scott Boras, who will be looking to squeeze every last dime out of some team next winter. There won't be any discounts to Cano's former team (whether that's the Yankees or the Red Sox under your hypothetical trade). Cano will go to the highest bidder.

    Sign him to a reasonable extension but as we see with A-Rod and Tex, no more10 year deals, five or six years would do nicely.
