    He'll be 35 in 3 years answer making $16-22M a year **** that. If we had a DH spot for him we should get him but he's going to bee old in 4 years and going to all at least a 5-6 year contract.

    The guy is still a .290 career hitter against LHP and hit .314, .285, and .309 against LHP in the 3 previous seasons before last year.

    His career resume dictates last year's problems against lefties was an aberration.

    The guy has had over a 20 fWAR cumulatively over the last 3 seasons as well.

    He will be 31 years old by the time he hits FA but i doubt he sees more than 5 years on the open market (6 with a team or vesting option). He could be a good deal for you guys if you need another piece.

    thing is we kind of don't need another piece, if we do it would be a center fielder so that we could shift kemp over.

    Agreed, he was a horrible 2B..defensively. He is much older and slower now. No thanks.


    A Real American HERO !!!

    You might because whats to say you don't finish like the Angels did this year.

    Win 85-90 games and barely miss the playoffs.

    Cano can put a team like that over the top.

    that's true, but our defense gets so god damn bad with him, and he is over 30 and will command big money.

    Also, we already have guys that can carry a team, and have been in the mid 80's win total and barely miss the playoffs, lol and that was without Kemp for about half the season, and a Juan Uribe starting at 3rd until about the trade dead line, Dee Gordon slumping for 4 months and Mark Elis not hitting right handers and worst of all a loney/rivera platoon at 1st base all the way through August.

    Now health permitting we have solved most of those problems, and now have Zach Grienke. I think we will be better. While Cano makes any line up better, he doesn't make our team better as a whole.

    could definetly work..The key for Dee is he needs to learn to get on base. If you can produce offensively managers make room for you somewhere . 2nd base would be a good spot for Dee.

    I also believe that dee should be the 2nd baseman if he can find his way on base. His stats were on the rise in july before he hurt hims self I think that 40+ stolen bases would warrant some time with the hitting coach and a position anywhere on field depending on him getting on base.
    Go dodgers!!!!
    LAKERS
    Go dolphins!!!!
    Go Flyers!!!!!
    I would give her a ball maybe two!!!!!!!!

    But for his entire career he's hitting .290/.338/.453 vs. lefties. Not bad at all.

    Our 2B and 3B moves will be very interesting over the next few years.
    The Yankees do not extend players. If we did, I think we'd be far better off.

    Saving that, Cano is a stud. He's the best 2nd baseman in the game and in his prime. And finding offense @ 2nd isn't super easy. I expect he has some big offers on the table, as he should. No idea where he ends up.

    There is more to defense then just arm strength
