If he's great for 3 years and then solid for 2 more, I'd be happy with this deal. No, I don't expect him to be great for all 7 years. You'd be a fool to think that. Would it surprise me if he got hurt early on? No, it wouldn't. For almost any other team I'd say this is a bad deal. But the Yankees freed up a ton of cash, needed an ace SP in the worst way and have the means to recover from this deal in case it busts. A risk, but a necessary risk.

Not the ideal contract you give out for guys with his size and career workload but the FO was desperate and he was the best available starter. He is the defacto Ace, but he's got Burnett and Wang behind him. Plus contributions from Hughes and Chamberlain will help too.

You should, he's eaten the Boston lineup for lunch every time he's faced them. He's a huge injury risk but when he's on the mound, he's electric.

Apparently he was a good signing.
B-Chad wrote:Pedroia's LD rate of 20% is reason to believe he'll maintain a higher BA then Cano. It should also be noted he hits more FB's then Cano, which means that even if he posts a lower HR/FB then Cano, he should come in reasonably close to Cano in HR's
