    Robinson Cano is not a $25MM player.

    If I remember correctly, field box seats were $11, lower reserved seats $6, grandstand seats $2, and bleachers 50 cents. A hot dog, 50 cents and a beer a dollar. Of course, Mantle was making $100K.

    Tom, price inflation over a long period of time and Cashman. Those are the two main culprits.

    I see that Michael Jordan is back in the news again. I’ll tell you what, if Jeter and Yanks win another WS title, I bet you that will grab MJ’s attention even more. He’s obsessed with Lebron now. Wait till Lebron gets another ring and if Jeter follows that up with his 6th ring, MJ is gonna go ballistics.

  5. Chip February 18th, 2013 at 9:55 pm

    If Cano gets 8 years and 25 mil per year I hope it is not from the Yankees.

    Eduardo Nunez is not an infielder. He stinks at ss and is worse at second and third. He is essentially Soriano minus the power. See if he can play a corner of spot.

    Robinson Cano is not a $25MM player.
    =================

    He’s a second baseman that has OPS’ed over .900 for the last three years. If he hits the open market, he’ll get at least $23 million per year, probably more.

    Ghost,

    He will be 32 after this season. The team that signs him will get two, maybe three elite years and then 5 years of diminishing returns.

  9. tbone1570 February 18th, 2013 at 10:10 pm

    Cashman’s to blame for the ticket pricing strategy? In the typical baseball operstion, the GM wouldn’t be involved in setting ticket prices. Makes more sense to blame Trost and/or Levine.

  10. trisha - true pinstriped blue February 18th, 2013 at 10:10 pm

    I’m in a bit of a conundrum. I’m thinking of buying tickets to the last home game, because I just have a sinking feeling that Mo is going to announce that this is his last season with the Yanks. If I wait until the announcement – if there is one forthcoming – I guarantee you that the tickets will either be sold out, or the prices will skyrocket from what they are now.

    If I go, I’m going to get the best seats that I can – and that I can afford. What I can’t figure out is why there are still seats available in 14B – right next to the Ys dugout, yet the tickets in section 14A show to be sold out, as well as those from 15A straight through to 19. Is there something undesirable about that section? Actually those other tickets just show to be unavailable, meaning they are not held by current ticket holders. I guess it’s possible that the Yanks still own most of them. So I either wait until they go on sale for individual ticket holders and hope I can get decent seats, or I buy them now from Stubhub. I really don’t know how to play it.

    Is there anywhere that I can find face value of the different seats?

    Okay so I just checked and the face value of the seats is 2/3 less than they’re going for on Stubhub. I know I’m going to get screwed no matter how I play this. :mad:

    Suggestions?

    Trisha,

    I say wait it out.

  13. Rich in NJ February 18th, 2013 at 10:15 pm

    I don’t think any baseball player is wroth $25m a year because they can’t make that kind of critical contribution to a team’s winning or losing like in the NBA.

    That said, letting him go for draft picks is the second worst possible outcome.

  14. Ghostwriter February 18th, 2013 at 10:16 pm

    =========

    I think that he could be had for five or six years at $25 million per; Hamilton took five. They might even be able to structure the deal such that the big salary years hit further out in the future to ameliorate the hit against the salary cap (e.g., 19 million in years 1 and 2; 26 million in year 3; and 32 million in years 4 and 5).

    Not really his doing that he’s in the news…. He can’t really help that it’s his 50th birthday…..espn is just doing what they do best and taking something and hyping it to the turnoff point.

    Lebron has 5 titles yet to catch MJ and Jeter is a baseball player and marketer for Jordan’s products as well….

    For those who haven’t read this yet…..I recommend it…. It’s long but it’s pretty interesting .

  16. blake February 18th, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    There isn’t going to be a good outcome with Cano….. There is literally 0% chance they trade him and hey will either sign him to a bad contract or lose him for a sandwich pick….. It’s just the reality of the situation unfortunately

  17. Nilsson February 18th, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    I suppose that bit of parody didn’t completely come through in my previous post. One is a reason for general price increases for goods and services. The other is a caricature. I’ll let you decide.

  18. Jerkface February 18th, 2013 at 10:19 pm

    I think that he could be had for five or six years at $25 million per; Hamilton took five. They might even be able to structure the deal such that the big salary years hit further out in the future to ameliorate the hit against the salary cap (e.g., 19 million in years 1 and 2; 26 million in year 3; and 32 million in years 4 and 5).

    It should be common knowledge by now that the deal is based on AAV, so that would not help at all for the salary cap. Though it would help them for physical payroll so they should of course build the contract to best manage that.

    I don’t know why you’d equate Hamilton & Cano. Hambone got his contract specifically because of his drug use / injury history. Cano is one of the most durable players in the majors. Look more to Tex/Fielder/Pujols/Arod

  19. Chip February 18th, 2013 at 10:19 pm

    Hamilton and Cano are different issues.

    Hamilton’s addiction and injury history depressed his value.

  20. trisha - true pinstriped blue February 18th, 2013 at 10:20 pm

    Chip – thanks! That’s the push I needed to do just that.

    :)

  21. Chip February 18th, 2013 at 10:21 pm

    Blake,

    Agreed. The smart play was trading Cano. Now the best result is not giving him an awful contract.

  22. trisha - true pinstriped blue February 18th, 2013 at 10:22 pm

    I’ll wait until they go on sale on the 27th that is. That way I’ll be able to see what’s out there in terms of what the Yanks have for sale.

    :)

  23. blake February 18th, 2013 at 10:23 pm

    I think the biggest thing relative to Hamilton with Cano is that boras is gonna look at him getting 25 million a year and demand at least that for his more durable player with less baggage…..

  24. Jerkface February 18th, 2013 at 10:23 pm

    If you’re thinking Cano is getting less than a 7 year deal thats wishful thinking. 7 is the realistic minimum, and 8 in some form (options or guaranteed) is probably the realistic maximum.

  25. Chip February 18th, 2013 at 10:26 pm

    The Yankees should have taken a page from the Rays with their three impending free agents. Instead of letting Hughes, Cano and Granderson walk for picks, Tampa would have dealt at least a couple of those guys and gotten young, controllable, high end assets. Like what Tampa got for Shields.

    Not that they should have traded all three guys, but one or two of them should have been traded this winter.

  26. blake February 18th, 2013 at 10:26 pm

    “Agreed. The smart play was trading Cano. Now the best result is not giving him an awful contract.”

    Well I think the smartest play would probably have been locking him up a couple of years ago…..I don’t know if trading him would be the best option anyway now because I wan them to win in 2013 and I don’t know what they could get for him exactly…..tough to say without knowing that

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

    I didn’t equate them. I brought up Hamilton, because he just signed a contract, and is about the same age as Cano.

    I read that article. It was actually quite entertaining.

    But I’m mainly referring to the rumors of another possible comeback. If I recall in the early 00′s, Kobe was the heir to his legacy. So Jordan makes a comeback in 2001-2002. Now it’s Lebron who is chasing his legacy. I don’t think the rumors of another comeback is a coincidence. And yeah, the 6 titles is another legacy that he’s proud of.

    23 sounds about right. I think he’ll get a 7 yr offer right around $160MM

    There’s no shame in field MVP seats.

  32. Chip February 18th, 2013 at 10:32 pm

    Can someone answer for me why the Yankees still think Eduardo Nunez is an infielder?

  33. Rich in NJ February 18th, 2013 at 10:37 pm

    Because Nunez was a good infielder at one point in his mL career, and he has never hit enough to really play another position.

  34. Chip February 18th, 2013 at 10:41 pm

    Rich,

    Well now he is a bad shortstop and inept at second and third. So what is he? A pinch runner? Why are we talking about someone who can’t field and can’t really hit as being in the mix for a spot on the ML roster at all?

  35. jacksquat February 18th, 2013 at 10:47 pm

    The last two years Nunez played in the minors he had fld%’s of .976 and .969, both of which are acceptable. In the minors he was the regular SS, where in the majors of course he was not, so the thought by some is that if he could get more regular playing time his fielding in the majors may be better.

  36. Rich in NJ February 18th, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    Chip

    He’s retains some boom/bust quality that a journeyman like Nix, their only other non-Jeter SS candidate, doesn’t have.

    I still think it’s possible that if the team told him that he is the SS, no matter what, he would relax and be passable, making some really good plays because of his great speed, and booting some routine ones, but, on balance, not nearly as horrible as he has been to date.

    I am skeptical that will ever happen.

    So his role could change from game to game.

  37. Chip February 18th, 2013 at 10:52 pm

    Yeah but if he is just going to be a short stop then he is too limited to be on the bench and what is more, will be a minor leaguer for another two years at least. If he has any value to other teams deal him for something useful.

  38. trisha - true pinstriped blue February 18th, 2013 at 10:53 pm

    Bronx – I admit the way the sellers have some of the tickets priced has truly baffled me. For example, someone’s selling a ticket in section 124 for $5800, yet tickets in 14B can be had for $750. Is it because 124 is called Field MVP???? Seriously, who’d pay $5800 to sit in 124? Maybe I’m missing something?

  39. Tar February 18th, 2013 at 10:54 pm

    “Why are we talking about someone who can’t field and can’t really hit as being in the mix for a spot on the ML roster at all?”

    “Nunez put up one of the best at-bats, given the situation, I have ever seen. Especially with me on the mound,” Verlander said.

    Cant hit?

    You want youth on the team, there is going to be growing pains. The kid was called up at 23 and has been kind of jerked around the infield. He started a grand total of less than 20 games at 3b and 2b in his minors league career, yet he was supposed to come up and be a super sub. Sounds like the Yankees did a great job preparing him for that role, huh.

    Maybe you would prefer Nix. For me, Nunez adds speed and youth to the line-up that is sorely missed. Coupling him with Gardner and Ichiro is going to add a dimension to the line-up that has me very intrigued.

  40. Rich in NJ February 18th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    I agree, Chip. As I mentioned last night, Cashman said just a month ago that he would be a supersub. I think that’s the only role that makes sense unless Jeter is going to be playing much SS this year, and at this point, we have no reason to think that’s the case.

    If Nunez is on the team, you have to live with his mistakes, wherever he plays. If they aren’t prepared to do that, yeah, send him down or trade him, because he could possibly develop somewhere else.

  41. Rich in NJ February 18th, 2013 at 10:58 pm

    *isn’t going to*

  42. Bronx Jeers February 18th, 2013 at 11:15 pm

    Trisha,

    5,800 sounds like a delusion of grandeur. 750 for 14-B sounds like face value, no? The thing about legends seats is that you’re really paying for the amenities. How much free food can one eat? Surely not $400-500 dollars worth. On the other hand if they’re in the 1st row then that’s something special.

    And buying early on stub hub is just ensuring that you’re overpaying. They’re always at their most expensive when they first get listed. There’s also the fact that there’s no guarantee you’ll see Mo pitch in any one specific game. $750 wil get you some nice postseason seats.

  43. RMS February 18th, 2013 at 11:32 pm

    How can you develop a young guy by trying to make him into a super sub? Not playing him regularly at one position so he can develop? Nunez brings youth and speed to this old team. And he can hit. Yankees don’t seem to know what to do with him. Shades of Joba.

  44. jacksquat February 18th, 2013 at 11:33 pm

    I’d be very surprised if Mo announces anything other than this is his last year. I think last year was supposed to be his last year but he didn’t want to go out like that.

  45. jacksquat February 18th, 2013 at 11:35 pm

    Bench should be something like 2nd catcher, Nunez, Nix, RH OF (Diaz, Mustelier).

  46. Rich in NJ February 18th, 2013 at 11:45 pm

    “How can you develop a young guy by trying to make him into a super sub?”

    It depends on how many games Jeter plays at SS. If it’s anything close to his career norm, there is no value to having one of their few bench players in such a limited role, which is how they began last season.

    He has never hit like a top prospect in the mL:

    .271 .314 .365 .679

    Joba had an almost unlimited ceiling at one point in his career. Nunez’s ceiling may be as a role player.

    Gardner has had to play both CF and LF. Why can’t Nunez play the various infield positions?

    That should have started in the mL, but they never did that because their role for him keeps changing.

    I don’t think where he plays is as important as living with his errors.

    btw, He’s not that young anymore in baseball terms. He turns 26 in June.

  47. jacksquat February 19th, 2013 at 12:00 am

    Jeter will be 39 and is coming back from a major ankle injury, he should get frequent DH time, with Nunez at SS.

  48. RMS February 19th, 2013 at 12:01 am

    btw, He’s not that young anymore in baseball terms. He turns 26 in June.

    ————————————————————————————————-
    On this team he is young. lol.

    He has never hit like a top prospect in the mL:

    .271 .314 .365 .679

    —————————-

    He’s actually done slightly better in about 500 PAs with the Yanks. And he does seem to get some timely hits.

  50. Jerkface February 19th, 2013 at 12:13 am

    I think Nunez can be an average or above average hitting SS, but not sure his bat plays anywhere else. They do need to do something with him. He needs consistent PAs.

  51. Pat M. February 19th, 2013 at 12:35 am

    Nunez will never be even an average shortstop at the big league level. He’ll hit alsight , however it’s his glove that will send him elsewhere in the ned. Leftfield most likely. He’s just not an everyday guy at short. He can stick though.

  52. Nick in SF February 19th, 2013 at 12:57 am

    Hi Pat M.! I hope you enjoyed your trip to Berkeley. :grin:

  53. Pat M. February 19th, 2013 at 1:08 am

    I sat in total shock in Hass Pavillion Thursday night. I’m convinced that many of the key Cal Bears play 5 years under Coach Montgomery, who by the way should be getting a suspension and or fine. Saw The Bruins bounce back at Maples which was the game I was originally worried about. Planning on heading to Vegas for the PAC 12 Tourney in a few weeks, should be a blast and cost half of what it was at Staples. Bruins are a Sweet 16 team….Working on my over / unders and Yanks looking very nice at 86.5

  54. Jerkface February 19th, 2013 at 1:14 am

    Nunez will never be even an average shortstop at the big league level.

    I meant bat only. His defense right now is in dire need of consistent work to repair.

  55. Pat M. February 19th, 2013 at 1:19 am

    I agree with you Face about Nunez.

  56. Nick in SF February 19th, 2013 at 1:22 am

    Coach Montgomery knows what he’s doing and Cal should be in very nice shape next season.

    Did you stay at the Hotel Shattuck or the Durant? Did you get gelato from that place on Shattuck next to the BART station entrance?

  57. jcr421 February 19th, 2013 at 4:35 am

    Lineup vs RHP: 1) Jeter; 2) Ichiro; 3) Cano; 4) Tex; 5) Granderson; 6) Yukilis; 7) Hafner; 8) Catcher; 9) Gardner.
