no thanks. why would we want kent instead of cano?
Because Kent will outperform Cano offensively for the next 2 or 3 seasons....
1. That's an opinion. Kent is old and you never know when the decline comes. I'm not saying I disagree, but you cannot make that statement with certainty.
2. Kent is owed $9 million in 2006 as compared to the league minimum for Cano.
3. Kent's deal expires after this season so they'll likely have to sign him to a 2 or 3 year extension in order to keep him. Cano won't be FA eligible for a long time. The Yankees can have him locked up at 2B for a while.
4. Who would the Yankees trade Cano for? Pierre? Yeah right. He solves none of the Yankees needs and they'd likely let him walk after next year anyway after he proves that. If the Yankees want a big-name CF, they might as well wait until next offseason when they can have a choice of Torii Hunter, Andruw Jones, Mike Cameron, etc.
Makes no sense for the Yankees. Zero.
