Not sure I follow this logic. The Yanks save 2 what, million a year between Ells and Cano, for years 1-7 of the deal. And that is the only reason they were able to sign McCann to a 17 mill a year deal?
So your premise that outlay of 72 million from year 8-10 for his 39-41 year old seasons is what? Irrelevant? Insignificant?
