I Think Y'All Should Give Him His Money - How Bout Some More?
Saturday, January 26, 2008
Edit 1/27/08: it appears I misinterpreted the reports (YC making a mistake?! UNPRECEDENTED) - - the actual deal calls for 4 years but has 2 additional club option years, which would THEN add up to the $56 mil. My opinions on the subject remain unchanged, though...!

All week there has been "preliminary" (I say preliminary now, anyway) buzz of the Yanks hooking Cano up with a 4-year deal worth about $30 mil, but ESPN is now reporting that the deal is significantly grander. Cano and the Yanks are alleged to be on the brink of agreeing on a 6-year, $56 mil contract, meaning Cano would be earning over $9 mil per year and would have his position secured with the team through 2013, when he will be 31. I thought the previous deal was a good one for both sides - the Yanks got him at a steep discount and Cano's worries about not being with the team were assuaged - but this contract would be an even bigger boon for the both team and and of course for Sir Robby. $9 million per year is STILL cheap for the Yanks; I have no doubt about Cano's talents and the contributions he is going to continue to make to the team - mark my words, this man WILL win an MVP and a batting title. For Robby, the deal looks tan excitante. A potential $9 million is a far cry from the $490K he made in 2007, and 6 years is just about as good as it can get for a youngster, regardless of talent (of which he has plenty, of course). Few teams are willing to invest such a considerable chunk of change in any player for such a time period, and to offer that sort of deal to a 25-year-old is quite a compliment to Cano!

    Its still a 4 year deal YC, just with two club option years, totaling the amount you indicated. Its not a six year deal though, 4+2.

    Thanks anyway
