    Cano and Choo I can see even tho I think a team will regret the last couple years if they get contracts that long...but Ellsbury...a team is nuts that pays him that much for that long...too inconsistent for my taste...huge risk

    I'm guessing that Canos contract will not be as egregious as predicted in here, he's dumped Boras, and he wants to be a Yankee lifer (or so it's been reported). I think we'll see him take a smaller contract as I believe AROD may have altered the Yankees willingness to accept huge contracts... Especially after the 2007 shenanigans.

    It would be helpful if you told us where you got the image from.

    Those ages are slightly off. Those were probably the ages when the list was made. Choo wiil end the season at 31 and will be 32 three months into his new contract. Seeing how a qualifying offer with draft pick compensation seems to suppress the prices for guys over 30, I'm guessing Choo will get something more like 3 years, 40 to 45 Million.

    Are you nuts?
    Michael Bourn(30) ~ 91 ops+ 5 years $60 million including an option
    Nick Swisher(32) ~ 118 ops+ 5 years $70 million including an option
    Shane Victorino(32) ~ 102 ops+ 3 years $39million
    I think His contract will be around 5 years $85 million at the least.

    With Scott Boras on board I'm saying no chance. He'll get 4 or 5 years easy.

    He's talking about Choo not Cano. Cano will get more than 5 years no matter who his agent is.

    Cano is going to get Jeter money since he's going to be the face of the Yankees going forward since Rivera, AfRod, Jeter, etc are all gonna be gone/retired soon. Jeter got 10 years and 189 mil in 2001. Granted Jeter is younger than Cano is now. I expect 7 years (with 8th being an option of some sort) at like 22 mil average value.

    Choo gets 4 years probably 65 range.
    I think Ellsbury gets 6 years 100 mil.

    There is no way in the world that you pay a platoon player (Choo) 15 mil a year for any period. That is NY Yankee crazy. Love the guy but he is situational at best.
