Time will tell how the family will spend money when the old man dies which could be any day really.
I've been hearing more and more about Ellsbury to Detroit. Who in the hell would lead off?
I don't think this will affect the money they had allotted for Cano. If anything it will make the Yankees much more attractive as a championship caliber team. I also have a feeling they are ready to nix the 189m payroll.
Healthy Ellsbury is better on offense and defense than Gardner but he definitely deserves more money. I think it will mainly be Gardner, Ellsbury, and Soriano left to right. I would like to see them try and unload Wells for a prospect/draft pick and platoon Ichiro and Sori with more time for Sori.
Another interesting take on this is that Scott Boras is trying to dry up the market for Cano in revenge by throwing Ellsbury and Choo at the Yankees. That's a bit too Ari Gold for me to believe though.
