I Think Y'All Should Give Him His Money!
Friday, January 25, 2008
It's arbitration season for a few Yanks (and if you aren't familiar with the term in regards to baseball, don't fret my pets: you can read my delightful definition of arbitration over at the world-famous [lies] Yankees Chick Glossary!): Cano, Wang, and Bruney. The Yanks haven't reached deals with the Wangster or Bruno, but they have zeroed in a sweet contract with Robby. Generally speaking, the Yanks don't use arbitration time to strike multi-year contracts with their players (they just hammer out the salaries), but they are on the brink of signing Cano to a 4-year deal worth $30 million. This arrangement is a very wise move for the Yankees, and obviously works out well for Cano, too. With Cano under contract for 4 years, the team is getting an All-Star 2nd baseman for bargain-basement prices in this crazy inflated market - which shows NO signs of ever returning to any sort of sanity - and Cano can breathe easy about his place on the team for a few years and exert 90% of his mental energy on playing beisbol and the other 10% on frolicking jauntily about the stadium with Melky.

    Really good deal for Cano. Begrudgingly, I admit he is one of the top two 2B's in the league, along with Chase Utley.

    Agreed, mets guy.

    I think the Yanks are on the winning end of this deal - they are getting a great deal money-wise ($7+ mil/year for a .300+ hitter that keeps improving defensively and has proven to be a good influence on the team!)

    Huh. $30 millon for a 4 year contract? In my opinion, Cano is worth more than $7.5 million per year, but hey, it's a stellar deal for the Yanks. It's hard to justify that A-Rod will be getting roughly $22 million more PER YEAR than Cano over the next few years, but I guess when you're Steinbrenner, you can do that kind of math.
