Cano didnt derseve that contract, still going to be a **** contract in a few more years i think everyone will agree to that. I wouldnt of signed Cano but if the ALTERNATIVE was Els and Mcann.. Yea i would of just gave Cano the money at least you know hes produced in pinestripes, i hated the els signing for Day 1, he had that massive year when he was almost MVP and hit a ton of homers. Yanks alwayst hink the short fence will produce alot more homers. The def thought Els could be a 30 hr guy with lead off and speed , back fired thou,.
And yea hes untrable, hes always hurt, he cant throw, doesnt walk, low on base percetage and his steals are going down.. Literally hes terrible
You're missing my point...
After making a point about fiscal responsibility, how can Hal Steinbrenner defend a signing like Ellsbury?
Yes, Cano is paid $3M more than Ellsbury with 2 more seasons BUT Ellsbury is already showing signs of losing his spot in the outfield while Cano came off playing 161 games with a career high in HRs 39 and over 100+ RBIs. Can Ellsbury even finish a season healthy?
And that's my point. BOTH are bad deals but Cashman overpaid a guy dressed by the Red Sox...and passed on a guy who could play in NYC over $3M/2yrs difference.
So that leads me to believe it was personal between the Yankees front office and Cano's CAA led by Jay-Z.
