    It's what I would offer with a vesting option for a 6th year if performance and health criteria are met.

    Whatever the case....I'd be surprised of Cano signs now.

    Boras will have him hit the open market and start a bidding war for him. It makes sense...that would drive his price up and then the Yanks may not want to lose Cano and in turn start bidding against themselves. Classic Scott Boras malarky. I've seen this movie play out time and time again. Yank fans should recall this same thing playing out with Bernie...back when he was supposedly on the verge of joining the Red Sox.
    "After my fourth season I asked for $43,000 and General Manager Ed Barrow told me, 'Young man, do you realize Lou Gehrig, a 16-year-man, is playing for only $44,000?' I said, Mr. Barrow, there is only one answer to that - Mr. Gehrig is terribly underpaid."- Yankees outfielder Joe DiMaggio

    Wow, you guys are cold. No love for Brian Cashman at all? He broke his leg today.
    Lou Gehrig is the Truest Yankee of them all!

    Wasn't he skydiving? It's unfortunate, but between that and the building rappelling it was more likely than not that something like this would happen. It's not like his personal life warms the heart either.

    He was surviving for charity to bring attention to the wounded warrior project. This actually gets it more attention. Bad for him but good for his cause.

    Now who can we get to sub while he is on the dl?

    Yankees are apparently trying to get Chipper Jones out of retirement. I like this...

    Yeah, I doubt he would do it too, just reporting the news.

    Enough with the rumors! While I am flattered about the speculation of being enticed out of retirement, I'm happy with life as a bad golfer!

    Crap, baseball needs more guys who are 40-something that can still preform.

    Well I would rather see young talent we could root for years for, Chipper would have been a perfect fit for 2013.

    If he could still perform he wouldnt have retired. Baseball needs more twenty-something players that can perform, instead of spending 8-10 yrs in the minors.
    Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen,and welcome to Yankee Stadium. Here are the lineups for todays game...

    Ridiculous statement. Chipper decided before the season that he would retire and he was solidly above average last year.
    My top 10 players:

    1. Babe Ruth
    2. Barry Bonds
    3. Ty Cobb
    4. Ted Williams
    5. Willie Mays
    6. Alex Rodriguez
    7. Hank Aaron
    8. Honus Wagner
    9. Lou Gehrig
    10. Mickey Mantle
