Comments on: King: Cano wants new contract http://itsaboutthemoney.net/archives/2011/10/27/king-cano-wants-new-contract/ The official Yankee blog of ESPN's Sweetspot Network Sat, 18 Oct 2014 00:03:09 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.0 By: PrinceNasim http://itsaboutthemoney.net/archives/2011/10/27/king-cano-wants-new-contract/comment-page-1/#comment-19826 Sun, 30 Oct 2011 03:22:44 +0000 http://itsaboutthemoney.net/?p=24286#comment-19826 Yes it makes sense and it would benefit both parties, but it's NOT going to happen. They tend to adhere to their policies very strictly. If they make him play out his contract AS IS, who knows what could happen. I'm not sure what kind of scenario would have to play out in the next 2 offseasons to have the front office even remotely consider declining the options and buying him out (perhaps something like GIambi's steroid fiasco and subsequent rapidly declining skills) but let's just say one of them happens and they just reworked his contract the offseason before, now they are stuck with him. I know that sounds far fetched I guess I am just trying to conjure up an additional point of view.

That's not even accounting for the vesting option for the 6th year worth 27.5 million.

Yes the Yankees could have offered a higher annual salary or what not, but 24millions per year for years doesnt seem like a discount to me.

Cashman will hold his feet to the fire whenever he can, which is why I think Cano made a mistake signing with him.

I'd like them to negotiate now, but with a single one time offer of 5/100 with team options for a sixth and seventh year at the same salary. Think cano will turn down a guaranteed $100 million when he is 2 years away from free agency?

I doubt it.

Chances are, there will be someone better available by then.
