Yeah, I wouldn't let a Francesa tweet fawning over an ex-Yankee sway your perspective or opinions.

I don't think many people have doubted Cano's ability to be a highly productive player in 2019. The concern is about the expensive dead weight he increasingly threatens to become with each passing year. And the frustration of the trade was with giving up some of our most valuable chips for two inherently volatile pieces -- an aging hitter and a reliever -- when the free agent market was highly saturated at both of their positions.

I stand by what I previously said; I need the Mets to either win a World Series, or for Cano and Diaz to both be on the very short list of the absolute best at their positions for the next 3-4 seasons in order to justify this trade. Otherwise, it goes down as a poor use of resources, probably fueled by the Wilpons' inability to properly spend in the deep FA markets at their respective positions.

This could just be that you're fucking retarded or are not paying attention to this off-season at all...it's the biggest and most debated move of the off-season for the Mets, and you dont even recollect it happening...I mean, this thread on this message board that you post on everyday is at nearly 300 pages, and it started less than 3 months ago...nearly 2000 new posts in this thread per month, and it's died down considerably in the last month! And this dude says he doesn't even remember us getting Cano?! What?!?!

If you can't even remember us getting Robinson Cano, you're just not even paying attention to the off season...it's a huge move, so it not having any impact on you just speaks to yourself

in fairness though, you're the type of dummy who the Mets get old Robinson Canos for, so you probably already own his jersey. I'm sure he'll be a fine player.

Unfortunately, after signing and before the press conference, he tripped and tore his Achilles tendon. Out for the season. Maybe 2020, also.

I'm thinking that Eu de MoMo did not help the situation.

I might get a Cano jersey, but at least I remember us getting him...is this some kind of power move where you pretend to not remember the biggest move of the off-season? Seems very Desperate Housewives
