i was just listening to michael kay and buster olney was on mentioning the yankees talking possible contract extensions, especially w/ cano playing in his final year of his current contract.

no one can deny what cano is worth; cano, imo, is a top 5 mlb player. if cano ever became a free agent, i would assume every team would make an offer for this superstar.

if the yankees offer cano 5yr 125mill an cano/boras want between 8-10 yrs at 250mill.

if you're cashman/yankee ownership, do you give cano 8-10yrs at 25mill per season? personally, if i were the yankees, i'd offer cano, at most, 6yrs 150mill. but if boras replies, "no deal! more yrs!" would you trade cano or let cano play out the final year of the contract(he becomes a free agent)?

if you decide to trade cano, in my opinion, you could get a "kings ransom" return for cano. the yankees, with this trade, could indeed restock their entire minor league system by trading cano.

lets say you were cashman now and you could trade cano. where would you trade cano and what would you ask for in return?

He's the best second baseman in the game. I would kill for him to be on the Mets. But 250 million? I think that's a bit much.

They should trade him and sign him in the offseason, a big middle finger to whoever deals the haul of specs it'll take to get him.

though baltimore and toronto both have pretty heavy minor league systems and are willing to spend big money on a player, i know(hopefully) the yankees wouldnt be dumb enough to trade him within the division

I think teams are starting to learn from the A-Rod deal that giving guys 10 year contracts (especially the Yankees) into their 30s is not the best idea.

I don't honestly see Cano getting more than 5 years with an option from the Yankees, they'll give him the annual money he wants but he won't see 10 years from them.

Whatever the case is, they should start talking that contract now because he is steadfast with those demands they might not have any other choice but to deal him.

I hope they don't give him anything close to 10 years. He'll be 31 when he hits free agency. I would offer 5/90. If he wants more, let him get it elsewhere.

As far as trading him, I don't know how much of a king's ransom they get, given that he's basically a 1 year rental. Still, a year of Cano is pretty valuable, so maybe they could get a nice haul. That's really an academic question though, because they won't trade him.

well then he will go elsewhere....People like Bourne will get that kind of money.... I would not go over 150 mill on cano but 5/90 for a player of his caliber just will not do it.

250 million is reserved for 2000 A-rod or 2012 Trout type guys. Not only do they have to be the best player in the game, but they have to be young enough to produce for the whole contract.

He is worth about 18-22 million per season.

His lazy effort play though bothers me individually, but he obviously performs.

18-22 million per year for 7-8 years is what he will probably get, and likely earn.

I think he'll top 150 million, but not 200

5 years would be ideal for extending Cano. He seems to be shooting for a mega contract so I won't be surprised if he tests the open market.

Yeah, he expects a mega contract, but nobody is going to top whatever the Yankees will give him in the end, he will end up settling for their best offer

You don't see any major market team possibly giving him more years than the Yankees?

I know money wouldn't be the issue in terms of annual salary but i could see a team giving him more years.

It's certainly possible, but I just don't see him leaving New York in the end, that's really all.

I'm really getting Sick of Boras, this man is on crack. The GM's that sign the players he is offering for the absurd deals they agree to are on it too.

Cano is great, but he is not worth anything near that. It's not like he's 26 years old.

He started that **** with the Mets in 2000 when they were looking at A-Rod.

http://sports.espn.go.com/new-york/mlb/columns/story?columnist=oconnor_ian&id=6567799


But then Boras began asking for things that had nothing to do with A-Rod's alleged childhood fantasy of playing for the Mets. The list included a Shea Stadium office, a marketing staff, a merchandise tent at spring training, a luxury box, use of a private jet, and more billboards than Jeter could count.

Cashman will let Cano walk when the Dodgers hand him a blank cheque while on the free agent market. Then the Steinbrenner's will step in and over rule Brian's decision by handing Borass and Robby there own blank cheque. If Cano's feelings are hurt from Cashman's original decision, he'll be a Dodger... and if he simply want's to stay in pinstripes he'll resign in NY, with Cashman throwing his hands in the air after his boss just handcuffed him when it comes to staying at or around the luxury tax threshold.

Do your job Brian jeeze, lol.

the highest they should go offer Cano is 6yr 150mill.

i know i'm gonna get bashed for this, but would yankee fans consider a cano trade to the rockies for tulo or cargo?

Not for Cargo. His home/away splits are atrocious.

Yeah it's like looking at the splits for Vinny Castilla and Dante Bichette in the late 90s lol.

No more then 5 years for these guys. Sorry if you contuine to hit this way for the terms of your contract we will give you a well deserved one. How much we pay you I have no problem with, I willhave a problem with more then a 5 year contract. We give him 8-10 I will be pissed but I would be shocked if we do.

Not for Tulo either. In 6 seasons, he's played in 150+ games just twice and he's signed through 2020 and owed >140M.

cano is great, but 10 years and 200 mil is beyond absurd. long term deals like that ar ebad ideas. dont fall for it again yankees. just look at arod to see why its a terrible idea
