    @JeffPassan: Important: Almost every star with CAA signs a contract extension. Braun, Cain, Danks, Ethier, Halladay, Howard, Ad. Jones, Peavy, Zimmerman.

    That may suggest that if you want to draw clients away from Boras, you need a different negotiating strategy than he employs.

  3. blake April 2nd, 2013 at 11:55 am

    @NYDNHarper: Source close to Cano: “He wants to be a Yankee. He’s wants his money but he’s anxious to sign. Didn’t think that could happen with Boras.”

  4. blake April 2nd, 2013 at 11:56 am

    If you can get a huge extension and like the team you’re on then that’s always preferable than risking free agency…..free agency is great unless you get hurt or have a bad year or for whatever reason your market dries up…..

  5. blake April 2nd, 2013 at 11:57 am

    @NYDNHarper: Source stressed Cano isn’t comfortable with so much attention on his impending FA, wants to get a deal done “sooner rather than later.”

  6. blake April 2nd, 2013 at 11:58 am

    Yankee fans will love Cano if he signs early ….if he can get close to market value then it’s smart of him to sign now to eliminate risk and also so he can relax on the field and just play

    It’s disgraceful rap becomes popular. It’s ugly.

    How is it different than Rock N Roll becoming popular

  8. Rich in NJ April 2nd, 2013 at 11:59 am

    Getting all of your 3000 hits in a NYY uniform is pretty cool, just ask Jeter. And Cano would only be the second player to do so. That said, I hope any deal leaves them some financial flexibility.

    Some guys even took less money to re-sign with their team like Wade did.

  10. blake April 2nd, 2013 at 12:02 pm

    I predict 8/200ish…..with a vesting option for a 9th year. Done by may

  11. Rich in NJ April 2nd, 2013 at 12:02 pm

    That sounds about right. I hope they don’t go that high, but I think they will.

  12. Bronx Jeers April 2nd, 2013 at 12:04 pm

    Remember when Giambi and his 7year/115MM deal was an enormous contract?

    Now it’s a steal.

    hello everyone, the game yesterday turned ugly quickly but definitely it was an experience to be there as it was my first Opening Day at the new cathedral. Yanks can’t hit quality LH does not come as surprise with some of the above average players on the shelf. CC looks ordinary I question at the end of spring training if he was ready to go, He probably needs a couple more starts to get his arm strength back.

  15. blake April 2nd, 2013 at 12:06 pm

    @pgammo: So Robinson Cano insures he joins The Monuments, and Jacoby Ellsbury becomes Scott Boras’ headline free agent

  16. CompassRosy April 2nd, 2013 at 12:07 pm

    @StoneLarry: I think Yankees would have a much better chance of getting a discount on Cano if he had signed with Macklemore

    Not if 2013 is like every other year of his career except 2011 and a small part of 2007, but Gammo is Gammo, fake or otherwise.

  18. Cashmoney April 2nd, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    Larry must be very stoned to think player like Cano is available at the ‘ThriftShop”!

    This is a pretty good parody of Macklemore’s Parody song, Well … imo.

    Pretty cool, Cash, where’d you sit? I think C is on his usual course.

    It will also make the Yankees look good; something they could use PR-wise, considering the current state of affairs personnel-wise, media-wise and in terms of the fanbase grumbling.

    _

    If you view AAV for Giambi at $17m in terms a $117m payroll and A-Rod at $27m, over $200m, the proportion is similar.

  22. Rich in NJ April 2nd, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    $117 should be $125

  23. Cashmoney April 2nd, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    JAP, the field MVP section right behind home plate… definitely not worth the money I spent but I have done worse :D all in all, it’s an experience, I don’t regret it at all. It’s another thing if I was a season ticket holder I would think to see this product on the field.

  24. tucker April 2nd, 2013 at 12:23 pm

    Good for Robbie Cano. The deal on the table may be a legit one, and he knows that Boras will accept nothing prior to free agency … Boras is not quite evil — he does a great job of maximizing every nickel for his clients — but he is far from good for the game of baseball. The fans deserve a price correction on tickets, merchandise, etc., and both players and owners can stand to give some of their outrageous salaries/profit back to fans. The system that is in place now is what created New Yankee Stadium.

  25. BD (Boston Dave) April 2nd, 2013 at 12:24 pm

    I think 8/$200 is too high.

    I know Cano is better than David Wright but I see it as a comparable situation. He got 8/$138M.

    Now Cano should get more, sure, but almost 50% more?

    8/$168M and if the CBA allows some creativity with performance bonuses, add those in.

    Cano is 30. I know I know. He will “age well.” I thought Tex would age well too.

    Giving huge mega-deals to 25 year olds is one thing. Giving them to 30 year olds is risky.

    Give him a huge deal… but $200M is way too much.

    cano to the monuments? i think this is the first time i’ve thought about this. he really does have a chance to go down as the best 2b in yankee history…

    He has a chance to go down as the best 2nd baseman ever if he can string together some more big yrs.

  28. The Genius Maker April 2nd, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    Cano switching is a positive for him staying with the Yankees. i also view it as a positive because Cano is the type of player we should spend the money on. I am not comfortable with 8 years at that coin though. 25 mil a year for 5 years is a yes, but the dollar has to go down after 35 years of age

  29. The Genius Maker April 2nd, 2013 at 12:36 pm

    As for ARod, Rich makes the point I agree with and said at the time. ARod saved Texas about 20 million and the yankees should not have paid that portion. Further, The Yanks should have stopped after 7 years; paying beyond that was not necessary as ARod had apologized and created his bed. The Yankees not only forgave him for costing them 20 mil, but they paid him that and another $75 mil…it made no sense at all. I will say that I was in favor of giving him the $25 mil a year for 7 years, I was not in favor of the last 3 years as I said it would be an albatross for the team. I didn’t expect the last 2 years of “my” 7 year deal would have been so non valuable.

  30. BD (Boston Dave) April 2nd, 2013 at 12:36 pm

    the ‘greatest of all time’ thing is tough.

    how do you compare Cano to Rogers Hornsby?

    Cano will hopefully go down as the ‘best 2b of his era’.

    As a reformed STH, I know what you mean ;) .

    Glad we had a rep at the game :)

    The Swisher discussion: Swisher has been a better hitter with RISP over the past 3 years. in 413 AB’s with RISP his OPS is an excellent .896 and with runners on base it is .925 (733 AB’s). With nobody on a .777 OPS (in 899 AB’s). He obviously has performed in clutch spots? Yes, in the playoffs his overall numbers have not been good (he has had some good series’ though). In 181 AB’s (a smaller sample than above), his numbers are bad with an OPS of .589! While the sample is smaller, it is not tiny. I think it is more his style that he is a fastball hitter and a mistake hitter and you don;t get as many in the PS, but you would think that in clutch spots in the regular season it would impact him.

  34. RadioKev April 2nd, 2013 at 12:48 pm

    Did you know there was an actually Jonny Gnomes, lawn garden gnome night in Cincinnati?

  35. Cashmoney April 2nd, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    I think large part of it is psychological when it comes to the big stage. I think as a hitter Swisher hammers mistakes. that’s pretty much it. most of Yankees hitters are geared on FB because lot of them have slowed down bat speed wise as they aged. Detriot and Os in large part did a good job locating their off speed pitches and changed up the sequence on bunch of mediocre hitters.
    I don’t think clutch really exists but I do think some ppl tighten up under pressure and that happens in all lines of work.

  36. Cashmoney April 2nd, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    Rossy, I am not expert in anything, but , I definite would dig it if I was a Ms fan.

  37. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 12:54 pm

    There was a Robinson CaGnome night at Trenton last year!

    Ha! That is creepy. http://www.milb.com/news/artic.....8;sid=t567

    I like Jonny Gnomes, because he ACTUALLY looks like a gnome.

  39. ac1 April 2nd, 2013 at 12:57 pm

    I say the deal ends at 8/216, like we heard a couple weeks ago…
    They will give him the extra to get this done now.
    I agree we cannot cut off our noses with Cano because of A-Rod.

  40. Cashmoney April 2nd, 2013 at 12:57 pm

    kevin, that is one large mutant Gnome, but anywho, carry on.

  41. Bronx Jeers April 2nd, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    Scott Boras just told me he has not heard from Robinson Cano about agent switch.

    So call me, maybe?

    Well sure Id love him for 5 years but guys that ain’t happening…..he would get over 200 million on the open market

  43. Cashmoney April 2nd, 2013 at 1:10 pm

    realistically, they are doing a 6 year minimum deal for Cano, my guess is Yanks and Cano’s agent will negotiate over 7 or 8 year deal and dollar figures for each.

  44. blake April 2nd, 2013 at 1:14 pm

    I don’t think you sign him early for less than 8…hope I’m wrong and they get him cheaper

  45. brianlopez22 April 2nd, 2013 at 1:37 pm

    no way Cano signs for less than 8 years. He’s already done his team friendly deals.
