I didn't say
white guy hustles and darky doesn't"
I said check the stats and watch the games.

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.
THIS is what I said. Do you even read threads before attempting to argue some point that no one has made?
Posted by 05nomar05 on 9/27/2013 12:53:00 PM (view original):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.
