    I dont hate the move to bring in Ellsbury, reminds me of a better Damon. With that said, 7 years is a lot for a 29-30 year old who has some injury history. Plus that $ is outragious, but thats baseball for you.

    The speed he can provide for this team is great though. Plus, everyone is saying he wont reach those power numbers of a few years ago, well, does everyone forget the short porch in right and how Kevin Long loves the long ball? Why do you think Granderson hit all those HRs while his averge dipped?

    Cano deserves BETTER than a ex-red sawx, just saying

    Compare please-

    Gardner @ http://espn.go.com/mlb/player/stats/.../brett-gardner
    Career: RBI .177 AVG .268 OBP .352 SLG .381 OPS .733

    Ellsbury @ http://espn.go.com/mlb/player/stats/...acoby-ellsbury
    Career: RBI .314 AVG .297 OBP .350 SLG .439 OPS .789

    Except for the AVG these 2 are very similar. Would you pay Brett that kind of dough?

    Lets be honest, Ellsbury is much better at the plate and on the basepaths then Gardner. He is probably a bit better in the field too. Plus, Jacoby has more power that once again will come into play at Yankee stadium. With that said, I still feel like it is a ton of money and risky to sign a guy who's strength is speed into his late 30s at $22M a year. Plus, dont the Yanks have some minor leaguers in the outfield? Austin? Willians? ect?

    Like I said, I am not all aboard with the signing, but I dont hate it. IF he stays healthy (big if), he will be solid in the first 4-5 years of the contract. Those last 2 or 3 could be ugly though.

    I was just saying this contract is more of a Tex contract then an Arod contract. Cano is trying to get the Arod contract.

    Cano 10yr $240M to the Mariners. Terrible signing by a team that is more then 1 piece away.

    3rd largest contract in MLB (Arod, Pujols)

    Compare that to Pedroia's 7 year $110M.
    Eli's 5 interceptions?

    I never liked the Tex deal. Great glove but his bat is way too streaky.

    Cano is much better than Pedroia.

    Pedroia is way more a team player then Cano is. Lil Dusty could have gotten alot more money if he had hit the market but he signed a team friendly deal that also pays him a helluva lot of money. Cano just wants the most money possible. Can't blame him even remotely but I still hope he burns in hell.

    It sucks that we lost Cano but I think Ellsbury can do some good things here. I hope so at least because the money the Yanks offered him is unreal. I like the speed he has and he is a pretty solid hitter. He should put up some nice HR numbers in Yankee Stadium.

    The Mariners are idiots. They are gonna be stuck with cano but yet the rest of there team looks like crap offensively. 10yrs??lol Cano's never had one 330BA 40HR 140RBI type season that Pujols and Arod had filled there baseball cards with over and over again to get that kinda doe. I love Cano, but hes gonna be a 289-295 20-24hr 75-90RBI guy in seattle. Not even close to worth 24million a season.
