Kasten has been adamant in saying they don't like giving big contracts to players beyond the age 35 mark.
Cano is going to be 31 on Opening Day. Plus the Dodgers will have some toxic contracts they will have to unload, and by unload they will be eating a huge portion to move these bodies: Beckett, Ethier, Billingsley?, Crawford?.
I just don't see them offering a 10 year deal to Cano, when he'll be 41 at the end of the contract. Maybe they can sucker the Angels into giving him the loot, they are moving Kendrick, and they like giving out these awful long term deals to players in their 30's.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Dodgers tried to make a move for Kendrick at the deadline and I could see them going after him in the off season, move makes more sense than Cano.
and jayson werth, carl crawford, johan santana, kevin brown, mike hampton, gary matthews jr, juan pierre, etc...etc...
Apples and oranges man, don't even understand the point you are trying to make.
