The difference between that contract and the one the M's are offering to Cano is the yankees are in a much better position to contend with many less holes than seattle has. Seattle needs Cano and then some...and then someu more again.
I said it yesterday, yankees offer 7 years at $189 million with team option for 8th year at $11 million, and a NMC. Cano leaves $25 million on the table to stay in NY.
