Could we be looking at another Albert Pujols situation?
With Robinson Cano entering free agency, presumably since the Yankees don't like doing contract extensions.
MLB Network was just discussing it with Al Leiter and Jon Heyman, both of whom agreed that Cano is one of the top 5 players in the MLB right now. Leiter said that he has 80+ XBH potential. Heyman pointed out that he can hit over 30 HR, hit .300 and play GG defense. Heyman said he would be surprised if the Yankees don't retain him saying "Look, LA stole this winter, but next winter it's the Yankees turn, when they re-sign Cano."
So my question is, should we make a run at Cano with Roberts contract running up? What if we win 90 games again?
How much will you give him? Do you even try to get him?

No way the Yankees let him walk

No way we are going to afford him. He will get over $25 million a year. Possibly 7 years.

Cano will be next offseason's Tex, Fielder, Holliday, Hamilton and every other big name that signed elsewhere. No way PA ever pays for a premium FA.

If you mean Cano to the Angels ...Maybe

Considering that the Yanks have spent a lot of energy to get under the cap in 2014 I am very interested in how they keep Cano. Not sure they can do both if one of the other powers makes a big push.

I would love to see the O's make a bid, even more so than for Hamilton. Cano is younger, plays a premium position, but can still hit .300/30/100 every year. That said, I am sure we will get outbid by the Yankees or Dodgers, but at least we can drive the price up.

Two words. Scott Boras. Don't the Yankees have to stay under the luxury tax cap next season?

I'm really looking forward to all of this going down. Yankees are in a really tough spot here. I'm loving it.

Cano will be 31 at the end of this coming season.
Unless he's only looking for a 3-4 year deal, I'm not interested.
(FYI, by "unless he's looking for a 3-4 year deal," I mean "of course he's not ----ing looking for a 3-4 year deal (more like 5-6 minimum) which is why I'm not interested.")

As for the Belle signing, you literally have to go back to the late 90's for that one. Hell, that's Frank Wren standing to him. How many FO people have come and gone since he was the GM? lol
