Robinson Cano: Why Not?
Posted 28 November 2013 - 01:10 AM
I haven't seen the Twins linked to Cano in any articles. Why not? Yep, Twins have Dozier and the kid in the minors (converted OF), while sometimes doing something un-conventional may just change the game. Cano representatives apparently need a dance partner to make the Yankees sweat a bit. Why not? It doesn't cost anything to finish 2nd and if you win, how would that change things at Target Field? Think about how it could maybe change the Yankee intimidation that seems to exist?
6-4-3 of Sano to Cano to Maurer sounds pretty good to me.
Talk amongst yourselves.

Besides, does anyone really want to give this guy 8-10 years? I want nothing to do with paying this guy $25 million plus for his age 35-40 seasons. It will be looking like a pretty terrible contract probably by it's halfway point.

Very few players are worth the big dollars in my mind. Cano is one of those who is worth it.
As for 2014... I'm very happy with Dozier and Florimon working the middle of the field... I think we can win with those guys... I really do.
Right now... I'm just not sure if we can win with Willingham, Doumit, Parmelee and Plouffe. Those are the guys who have to dig themselves out of 2013 and play 2014 with much more energy, passion and POWER!!!

Let the Yankees make this HUGE mistake. Anyone that signs him will be making a mistake. No way does he live up to his contract for more than a few year. I hope they sign him AND can't get out of the A-Rod contract. Look at all of the mega-deals that have been signed recently: Puljos, Hamilton, A-Rod, Jeter, which are all position players and are not worth the money (except Jeter with his Mauer effect for the franchise).
It's an unfortunate choice that teams have to make in FA. Usually the last 1-2 yrs of a 4-5 yr contract are poor values. when you double the length then you double (or more) the decline part but good teams need to make a choice to go for it and sign top FA's. This is of course why the Twins shouldn't sign him.
