    Statistically they were middle of the pack, a whole lot better than where the Twins ended up grading out.

    He would have taken a qualifying offer and they have better places to put $14M. Even the Yankees have spending limits and they need the salary room to retain Cano or go after Tanaka.

    This is going to be interesting to watch. The A-Rod deal is a shining example of how bad these monster deals can be in the final years. The Sabathia extension looks like it is going to be a big mistake too. So, I don't see them signing Cano unless other teams refuse to go 8 or more years or they are able to get out of A-Rod's contract. However, this is the Yankees we are talking about so they might sign him regardless and still go hard after Tanaka given the posting fee does not count against the Luxury tax.

    Well the Yanks have 21 consecutive winning seasons and counting so I will believe spending big in free agency spoils organizations when it actually happens.
