Even if you have a Home Run Derby crown and a World Series ring.
Yankees 2B Robinson Cano wants to "one-up" Prince Fielder (9 years/$214 million) and Albert Pujols (10 years/$240 million) and even teammate Alex Rodriguez (10 years/$275 million).
Based on those numbers, it's hard to even fathom the money that Cano wants.
Those numbers: 10 years/$305 million.
If we bring Mark McGuire-in his steroid prime-into 2013, he might be worth $30 million a year... but not over 10 years.
When are teams going to learn how crippling 10 year contracts are? 30-year-olds get five years at the most. If money is a concern, the Yankees are better off paying him more per year.
Set an example for future contracts.
