Comparing Robinson Cano To His Replacements

Not smiling now, are ya?

Okay, who is ready to have a little bit of fun with some small sample sizes mixed in with some hot and slow starts for various players around the league? When I say various players around the league I mean how smart the New York Yankees look less than three weeks into the season for letting Robinson Cano go and for signing the likes of Dean Anna, Scott Sizemore, Kelly Johnson, Brian Roberts, and Yangervis Solarte. It's early so don't put much into these numbers but it is still interesting to look at while we wait for the game tonight.

WAR - Wins Above Replacement Player:

Dean Anna - 0.1
Scott Sizemore -  -0.1
Kelly Johnson - 0.4
Brian Roberts - 0.2
Yangervis Solarte - 0.4

Combined 1.0 WAR for New York

Robinson Cano - 0.1


Dean Anna - $500,000
Scott Sizemore - $500,000
Kelly Johnson - $3,000,000
Brian Roberts - $2,000,000
Yangervis Solarte - $500,000
