He gets paid, no matter what. Union contract. What do I have to lose?
Wrong on that one.
Cano, 35, is in the fifth year of a 10-year, $240 million contract with the Mariners that he signed before the 2014 season. He’s currently on the disabled list with a broken hand.
Cano's suspension will cost him nearly $12 million in salary, along with an immeasurable hit to his athletic resume. USA Today
How many millions of dollars a year do these morons have to make before they can understand NO DRUGS. I'm pretty sure this was all outlined in his contract.
You really can't fix stupid.
Easy for you to say this not having millions of income on the line. Nobody walks away from money gracefully...nobody.These guys start getting old like all of us and get tempted to use stuff that will give them an edge.....did not have a big season last year....better to accept human nature and go gracefully.....
Some of you imply that the future matters to baseball players from the DR. Only if that future is the same thing as today.
You're right. Most Dominican ball players could care less about their legacy. They are there for the money and you really can't blame them. Coming out of the DR to become multi-millionaires will be their driving force. In Cano's case it is sad that he may have gone down as the best second baseman the Yankees ever had. He's a great player. Why did he feel the need to take PEDs? He should have stayed in NYC but he let his ego get in the way of his decision making. Sad.
They take the substances to prolong their careers so they can continue to earn.
Yes, you really cant fix stupid[emoji849]
