    @RiverAveBlues: Heyman: There is a “significant difference” in valuation during Cano talks http://t.co/PQgscuDg

  2. jacksquat February 14th, 2013 at 9:47 pm

    Of course there is, it’s Boras. He’s probably starting at 10/270.

  3. FiretheUMPIRE February 14th, 2013 at 10:15 pm

    At least they’re talking. I feel good about Cano not reaching free agency. It’s rare for the Yankees to talk extension period, though they tried it with Russell Martin recently.

  4. austinmac February 14th, 2013 at 10:31 pm

    I will remind myself to watch Jeter and Mo together for perhaps the last time. I fully expect they will both be first ballot Hall of Famers. Who,we’re the last long term teammates be do so?

  5. austinmac February 14th, 2013 at 10:31 pm

    –who were–

    No Idea, but if the BBWAA doesn’t elect Jeter 100% first ballot then I don’t know what the heck they are doing with themselves. Same with Mariano.

  7. tbone1570 February 14th, 2013 at 10:44 pm

    Molitor & Yount (and Maddux & Glavine will be another pair soon)

  8. Jerkface February 14th, 2013 at 10:46 pm

    I’m going to get to the first spring training game the Yankees have, should be a good look at the prospects invited to major league camp. Then going to try to get to a weekend 2 game set in late march.

  9. luis February 14th, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    Hi Tom! Sorry I didn’t answered in previous thread, had to go out… It is very hard to make a prediction this year, but if you want me to make one, I’ll say 92. Anyway, baseball is right around the corner and that makes me happy!! ;)

    Stone….Again, you are better than that

    ======================

    I am almost willing to bet that some a**wipe reporter might vote against him to prevent him from entering with 100%… There is a lot of anti-yankee bias around

    Tbone,

    Impressive. Thanks.

  12. austinmac February 14th, 2013 at 10:53 pm

    Jerkface,

    That sounds like fun. Full scouting reports please.

  13. austinmac February 14th, 2013 at 10:58 pm

    I can’t understand how Mays, Aaron don’t get 100% much less how DiMaggio could take three years.

    Mac,

    There is always one jerk that thinks that certain player doesn’t deserve the honor, even if he trully deserves it like the players you just mentioned

    It doesn’t really matter. The player is fully admitted, regardless of not getting a unanimous vote. It’s a binary decision, either in or out.

  18. luis February 14th, 2013 at 11:11 pm

    But Molitor and Yount didn’t play most of their careers together… Am I wrong on this?… I think Molitor played with the Expos for most of his career and Yount with the Brewers If I am not mistaken

  19. Ghostwriter February 14th, 2013 at 11:12 pm

    Highest percentage of the vote was obtained by Tom Seaver, with nearly 99 percent of the vote. I would not have guessed that. Most of the highest vote getters seem to be fairly recent inductees. Apparently, the standards have softened of late.

  20. austinmac February 14th, 2013 at 11:12 pm

    I agree if you’re in, you’re in, but do these writers not think these players meet the standards prescribed? Seriously?

  21. luis February 14th, 2013 at 11:13 pm

    I think out of the core 4…. Jeter, Mo and Posada makes it to the hall….I don’t think Pettitte makes it though

    Molitor was a longtime Brewer–came up with them. I’m pretty sure that he was inducted as a Brewer./

    Meh. There is a subjective element to the voting. I think that there is room for some judgment in voting, even if I strenuously disagree with it. Nothing is perfect.

  24. luis February 14th, 2013 at 11:17 pm

    Thanks Ghost…. Didn’t know that….Good link by the way

    Apparently, it was Ernie Banks and Ron Santo, even thouh they were inducted 35 years apart (Banks in 1977 and Santo in 2012).

    ===================

    100 games above .500 will get Pettitte in at some point, assuming that the HGH scandal doesn’t sink his candidacy.

    Santo wasn’t a first ballot hall of famer. In his first year on the ballot he only got 4% of the vote and wasn’t voted in by the baseball writers. He was selected by the “Golden Era Committee ” for induction in 2011. 16 years after he was no longer eligible to elected by the writers.

    Good point. However, I think that Murray and Ripken also were both first ballot inductees, and Ripken was inducted more recently than Molitor…

    Yankees fans may not want to read this, but Kevin Youkilis still loves the Red Sox:
    “To negate all the years I played for the Boston Red Sox and all the tradition, you look at all the stuff I have piled up at my house, to say I’d just throw it out the window, that’s not true. I’ll always be a Red Sock.

    “Guys play on different teams and that’s a part of your history; that’s a part of your life and you can’t change that. It was great years in Boston. One bad half-year doesn’t take away from all the great years I had there and all the good things I’ve been able to do along the way and accomplish as a team, as an individual. It was great.” about 7 hours ago

    ———-

    Not to be a Youk apologist but is there really a problem here with what he said? People don’t really think he is going to all of a sudden be a Yankee through and through, do they?

    Seems really childish to keep piling on the guy. Besides like I have said before you’ll be cheering him on really soon and loving what he brings to the table. Grow up people.

    Youk is going to be this year’s Kuroda. Trash him before April and then spend the rest of the season loving him up. Fraud Anyone??

  32. backbench February 15th, 2013 at 1:06 am

    Odds are that Mo is the 1st player inducted on 1st ballot with 100% of the votes. DJ will be a high% finish, but as some have said, there will always be someone…..

  33. Rich in NJ February 15th, 2013 at 1:54 am

    Why wouldn’t Youkilis feel that way?

    The Yankees are merely a well-paying job at this point.

  34. jacksquat February 15th, 2013 at 2:03 am

    Some probably won’t vote for Mariano the first time because they don’t think a reliever should be first ballot.

    And some don’t think anyone should be first ballot.

    Wang reunion? According to the Ny Post, Cheing Ming Wang recently threw for Yankee scouts and coaches in Tampa and they were impressed with what they saw. They will watch him pitch in the WBC for Tawainn and might try and sign him if they like what they see there.

  37. GregD February 15th, 2013 at 7:00 am

    I would love to go to West Point on March 30. I love that place and I can still remember the stories of Mickey Mantle hitting one off Cullum Hall two years before I arrived there. I did see Bobby Murcer play there.

  38. 86w183 February 15th, 2013 at 7:14 am

    The closest we’ve ever come to first ballot inductees who played their ENTIRE careers together is Mickey and Whitey. The Mick was in his first year and Whitey his second.

  39. MTU February 15th, 2013 at 7:34 am

    Is there anyone invited to ST who you think might get some people to sit up and really take notice ?

    I’m thinking Tyler Austin, or possibly Jose Ramirez.

    Your thoughts ?

    And some don’t think anyone should be first ballot.
    ==========

    I think that there is a good chance that Mo won’t get in on the first ballot for these reasons. Rivera was also rooked out of at least one (probably more) Cy Young Award during his career because he is a reliever. It ain’t right, but it is what it is…

  41. Ghostwriter February 15th, 2013 at 7:49 am

    However, Eckersley was a first-ballot inductee.

    Heathcott and Monty could too.

    I think Heathcott has already done that in the AFL last season.

    Mongomery is certainly worth keeping an eye, or two on.

    I’m not even sure you could describe letting Cano go as a blessing “in disguise.” It seems thoroughly unwise to go this route if we’ve got some sort of budget.

    ============

    I wonder why the Yanks didn’t extend him two or three years ago. Now, there is a fairly high likelihood that we are going to wind up losing him, or giving him a contract that is entirely too long and too big.
