I don't blame any player for trying to maximize his worth, however, he needs to realize what his worth is.
The numbers Cano is throwing out there,
, is basically him not realizing what his actual worth is.
He has incredible offensive numbers, but plays in a hitters park and doesn't play a premium defensive position. No one is dropping major dough on a second baseman. Should've asked for a bit more than what Pedroia got from the Red Sox.
Also, there is no market for him. Tried to drag the Dodgers into it, they gave him a courtesy meeting, they tried to drum up that rumor and then Guerrero gets signed. Simply because if you are going to drop over $200 mil, why drop it on a second baseman already on his 30's as opposed to your two time Cy Young winner that is still in his mid-20's.
I just don't see the market, Yankees should put out a number and let him find a better deal.
For those wondering Pedroia got an 8 year/$110 million deal from the Red Sox that kicks in next season. Yanks should offer 6 years $125 mil.Edited by ooIRON MANoo - 11/19/13 at 2:37pm
