    Cano Situation.

    Put yourself in Cano's shoes for a minute.

    If you are him and see the direction of our team the next few years....

    Aging stars.
    Crappy farm.
    Budget restraints.

    Aren't you saying.....heck, I'm getting my money anywhere. I'm heading to a team that will be a player for the next 7-8 years.

    Dodgers
    Nationals
    Tigers
    Angels

    I mean.....wouldn't ya?

    Pretty much. Robbie Cano don't give a **** about loyalty anyway.

    | .372 AVG | 0 HR | 2 RBI | 6 SB | .438 OBP | .442 SLG | .394 wOBA |

    I think a trade could be a smart play but not sure that would resonate well with teammates or fans.

    Dodgers?

    Dee Gordon, Billingsley, some top specs ?

    I think Adams can handle MLB hitting. Or Nunez/Drew can be signed for 2B

    I have made my point on Cano many times. Sign him to a reasonable deal or trade/let him walk. Yanks would have gotten most of his best years at a discount and he can make 20 mill per year for the next 7 years on some other team.

    Nahhh, Yankee fans love seeing over-paid/under-performing athletes don the 'stripes.

    Honestly, Cano doesn't strike me as the type who would value a successful team/atmosphere over whoever is the highest bidder. Obviously I don't know him personally, I just don't think he would say "man, team X gives me a better chance to win, so I'm going to take 10M less to go there"..

    Whoever is paying him the most, that's where I'd bet he goes, whether it be us or elsewhere. Maybe we would get a SLIGHT edge if he likes it here in NY, but that's about it.

    I'm all for trading him, instead of giving him that 20M per...

    Agreed, hence I said he will get his money anywhere. I don't think the loot will be much different. He will have his choice.

    Really it's a lose/lose situation for the team but what can they do? Rebuild?

    Can I vote none of the above?

    If not, take my chances and hope for a few elite years of Josh, and flip Cano for some younger, cheaper pieces. Didn't even do the math to see if that works cap-wise, but if so, I'd do it. And flip Grandy as well.

    Leo.

    Dump him.

    And dump him now.

    He is a lazy, unfocused, unmotivated, lackadaisical, clown whose worth is probably peaking right now under salary control and will become a major major albatross in his 30's.


    And so, a new era begins.....
