The Curse of A-Rod


(ESPN) TAMPA, Fla. -- At one time or another, Alex Rodriguez has been blamed by Yankee fans for just about everything, from global warming to the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby.

And at this time next year, there might something else to blame him for: the very real possibility that Robinson Cano will be in a different team's uniform for spring training 2014.

Call it the Curse of A-Rod, if you like, but you've got to wonder if, when it comes time to pull the trigger on yet another high-ticket, long-term deal, the Yankees will be reluctant to repeat the mistake they made with Rodriguez in 2007.

Cano, indisputably the team's best hitter and, at 30, a player coming into what should be the prime of his career, will be a free agent after this season, and indications are his agent, Scott Boras, is looking for a deal comparable to the ones the Reds gave Joey Votto (10 years, $225 million) or the one the Angels gave Albert Pujols (10 years, $240 million). ...............(more)

1. Not Re-Signing Cano Has Nothing to do with ARod

You simply should not do long term deals with players over 30.
