Cano May Leave The "Total Mess"

According to a report by SI.com, those close to Robinson Cano believe the Yankees only have a 50-50 chance of re-signing their star second baseman. It's said that the "total mess" in the Bronx could contribute to Robbie jumping ship.

In that same report, it's said that the Dodgers are believed to be front-runners for Cano. LA's payroll going into this season was a little below $217 million, and the team has over $50 million coming off of the books after this season. On top of having the money freed up, Skip Shumacher's and Nick Punto's contracts will be up, leaving them needing help at second. The Dodgers do have a club option on Mark Ellis that they may pick up, but he could very well be a utility infielder thanks to experience at shortstop and third base as well.

I want Cano to return to the Yankees, and expect him to be back in pinstripes next season, but I'm not going to kid myself into believing there are no other strong suitors for Robbie out there.


  1. Oh like the Yankees don't have the money too. Once the A-Rod verdict is reached this offseason they'll have plenty of money to sign him.

    1. What about the fact that the Yankees are a "total mess", while the Dodgers seem to be on an upswing?


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
