  • Yankees smart to lock up Cano

    This guy is an MVP in waiting and if( huge if) healthy will be Cooperstown bound one day
    His three season ( minus 72 games) totals are 314 -48-237 with 233 runs and he is a doubles machine averaging 39 per season
    509 hits of which 176 are for extra bases.
    Better base on balls to K ratio which will probably occur and he is a very very good 2 maybe becoming a 3 hitter.
    Yankees got him for 30 mil for 4 years with the teams option for years 5 and 6
    Nice job by the new regime

    He was pretty generous to New York, even more than Wright because he had another season.

    I wouldn't have signed that deal, Mark Derosa got $13/3 yrs off of one year. Oh well, his choice.

    JM: Only did that for a couple of years and then we had a conspiracy so it kind of turned me sour. Our league's commissioner, Lew Ford(notes) at the time, was doing some shady things that ... I'd rather not talk about [laughs].
    DB: Isn't he in Japan right now?
    JM: I don't know where Lou is right now. He's probably fleeing the authorities [laughs].

      I really like the deal for the Yankees, and he's certainly one of the top 2B in baseball today, but I'm not quite ready to dub him a future HOF'er. He needs to become more consistent in his play before I can say that he would even be in consideration.

      If you look at his numbers last season, he batted just .274 in the first half, before waking up and having a huge 2nd half (.343). If he can get consistent and continue to produce, he will enter into the debate of Top 2B in the game today. He's probably the third best; Utley is a no brainer at #1, I'd rank Phillips #2 and if you want to continue Upton as a 2B, there's a chance he's #3 over Cano.

      With that said, the fact that he's one of the Top 4 second baseman shows how good of a deal he gave the Yankees. He should produce great numbers throughout the life of the contract and outproduce his salary. I like the move.

        Im so glad they resigned Cano. He will be vital for the Yanks in the years to come, and may even be the defining player of the Girardi era, like Jeter has been for the Torre era.

          If Cano was still eligible for arbitration, I think they should have just waited. Though I can see why they would give him a deal now. If he gets better, it could be cheaper for them.

          Wright got more because he is a better player.

            150 OPS+ compared to 120 OPS+. I'd say Wright is better by a long shot.

              Well, part of the reason why teams don't want a player in arbitration is that it makes financial planning difficult when you can't be sure how much a player is going to make from year to year. Sure, they may pay him a little more, but banking on the fact that he is going to improve it seems to be a very good deal for the Yanks.

              That said, I think their next move should be locking up Melky. They kind of dangled him out on a string when they were still in talks for Santana, so if the Yanks are serious about keeping him around, their best bet is to show some faith and sign him to a concrete deal.

                Good deal for the Yanks. 4/30 is a bargain given what you can expect from him.

                Calling him a future MVP, HOFer is a little premature at this point though.

                That's an understatement, considering we are talking about the third best player in his own infield...
