Negotiating 101.    Ask for way more than you'll get.     I suspect he'll get 6-8 years at 20m or so.    Owners/GMs have to look at the deals like A-Rod/Hamilton/Pujols and say "You know, when players hit their mid/late 30s, they're just not worth that much."    There's no reason for the Dodgers to pay Cano for what he did with the Yankees. 

Of course, it only takes one Tom Hicks-type to bid against himself.   And the Yanks did the same thing, again, when A-Rod opted out of the bad deal Hicks gave him.

He's looking at Pujols' deal and saying "I'm more valuable to a team than he is...I'm asking for more."  I'm guessing 6 years, $130M will be the final number.

If he signs for anything more than what Pedroia just got, then it's a mistake.  They are on par with each other (Pedroia a better defender and Cano better on Offense).  Pedroia signed a 8 year (a bit much) but onl $110 mil.  That makes the 8 years much easier to handle.

Homer call.   Pedrioa gets dirty making plays.   Must be putting in extra effort.

Cano's average UZR for the last three years is 3.
Pedroia's is 13.

I'd still rather have Cano, his bat is significantly better, but let's not pretend that he's a better defender than Pedroia.

Yes.  Pedy is a much better defender.

Actually watch the games and check the stat sheets.
