I’m predicting about 30 home runs during the remainder of 2013 and 50 next year.

He'll look great in a Red Sox uniform.
Seems like Kent, Grich, and Carew aged pretty well.
I think he'll age fine. He might have to be moved away from 2nd but he'll be able to hit until he's 40.
Am I the only one who see him looking for and possibly getting $200M+? Seems like the last two are awfully low compared to other recent contracts. Note that the Dodgers do not currently have a billion dollar 2b.
Much as it pains me to say it, isn't Cano just physically different from the secondbasemen who tend to fall apart quickly? Seems like Kent, Grich, and Carew aged pretty well.
Have the Yankees ever let a star in his prime leave during the FA years? I'm tired and there may be an obvious one I'm missing, but I can't remember it happening.
Have the Yankees ever let a star in his prime leave during the FA years? They sure tried with Bernie Williams, but he wouldn't let them. There's a couple of arguable ones--they traded Rickey! during his prime, for example--but since the start of their most recent run, I'm pretty sure the answer is no.
Andy Pettitte pitched his age 32-34 seasons with the Astros (and ended up having arguably the best season of his career down there).
Lou Whittaker and Joe Morgan both played 2B and were productive right up til their retirements. We had a thread here a couple of weeks ago that delved more deeply into 2B aging and for every star that fell off the cliff at 33 or 34, you could find one that was reasonably productive through age 40.
think $200M is the magic number for Boras/Cano and I'm guessing he ends up getting 8/$200M from someone.
Am I the only one who see him looking for and possibly getting $200M+?
How did this compare to 1B, SS, etc?

In a nutshell: great 2B age just fine, Cano is one, and he should put up about 30 WAR during the next 9 years, which would be worth $210M.
I don't know, but if I'm Cashman I'm not giving $200 million to anyone when I still owe the husk of A-Rod almost $140 million.
The nice thing about these arguments is that at least we'll have an answer before we're all dead!
