No 31 year old is worth 240 million for 10 years unless they are on steroids. He'll fizzle out and the Mariners wil become a laughing stock again while the Yankees thrive again. I can see why he would take the money but again someday I feel he will regret it. I would think no money in the world can match the experiance of walking back into Yankee stadium and getting a standing ovation when your 70 years old. He'll never experiance this.

In a 10 year spam I seriously doubt the Mariners win more pennants or division titles. I would take that bet in a second. I would bet my house on it.

Hate to be a stickler, but Paul Konerko was with both the Dodgers and Reds before he was traded to the White Sox after the 1998 season(for the immortal Mike Cameron.)
No offense, just had to point that out.

This is what Lebron James fans say.

This could be as big a mistake as Pujols and Hamilton getting ungodly contracts from the Halos.Just my opinion.

Well, LeBron with his two rings probably doesn't care, much like Cano won't care what Yankees fans think of him not being a "true Yankee".

I agree 100 percent. It's obviously not Cano's fault and everyone here is probably right. Most would take the money. I bet Pujols is already regretting leaving though.

240 million sure would. And again...I'm sure he doesn't really care about experiencing that. A standing ovation doesn't pay for anything. You overestimate the importance of the "Yankee Mystique" these days.

Maybe but I doubt that will be the case. Lebron has already mentioned how he did the wrong thing and believe me Cano will too.

I doubt it. He's got a ring. Now he's got the money too. Players don't put much emphasis in loyalty to one team for their careers. It's all about the money.

To you and me 240 million would mean everything but this guy probably already has close to a half a billion dollars. I think Jeter, Rivera, Posada and millions of Yankee fans will disagree about this mystique thing too. I'm not a Yankee fan but I gotta admit I do admire their history and as big of jerks as the fans are they are true baseball fans.

No, he regrets how he did it. He's got two championships. He doesn't regret leaving.
