Retweet of the Day - September 26, 2013

New York Yankees All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano becomes a free agent after this season. ESPN's Buster Olney reported that Cano is seeking a 10 year, $305 million deal. Thirty million per season for a second baseman, no matter how talented, is off the charts. There are only a handful of teams that can afford such a deal. The Yankees are one of them.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are another such team. They have literally bought their way back into relevance during the last two seasons. Through trades and free agency, the Dodgers have collected a bevy of talent, with a price tag of $223 million* on this year's payroll. They went from cellar dweller to division champ in two short seasons.

Today's retweet is from Chad Finn of the Boston Globe ‏(@GlobeChadFinn):

"Can't wait until the Dodgers counter Robinson Cano's asking price by offering 10 years and $610 million."

With Jay-Z, if the Yankees don't pay up, Cano is moving "on to the next one".
