    Report: Yankees reach agreement with Brian McCann on 5-year deal

    Ken Rosenthal ‏@Ken_Rosenthal 2m
    McCann is in agreement with #Yankees, pending physical.
    Looks like the Yankees are serious about contending next year...

    Maybe, just maybe, they use Murphy and Sanchez as components of a deal that will net them a capable, cost-controlled starting pitcher.

    Assuming an agreement can be reached with Cano, the Yankees need only bring in Tanaka, re-sign Kuroda, and add some infield depth, and they can probably consider themselves contenders again.

    Improves the C spot and provides some balance/protection to the line up.


    Still a long ways to go though.

    As we learned after Posada's departure, it is very very difficult to get top-tier offensive production from a catcher. The terms of the contract don't bother me as much as McCann's recent injury history.

    Yeah they can survive with Ryan starting at SS if they upgrade other spots. If they don't upgrade off Wells/Ichiro in RF, they're in bad shape.

    Actually, I mis-typed. As of now it's 5 years $82.5 for McCann,Deal not finalized, but expected to be completed

    Per David Waldstein of the New York Times.

    I very much approve of this. 5 years of hopefully no catcher problems.

    Even though the last two years show a slight decline and the Yankees give up their first round pick in the draft, I like the deal for the next 2/3 years. Don't know about 4-6.

    By the time Sanchez is ready to be the full time catcher, McCann will be a 1B/DH.

    If they want to stay under $189, there's only SO much more they can do and still keep Cano.

    Re: Report: Yankees reach agreement with Brian McCann on 5-year deal

    I don't love the deal. It's probably going to end up being another bad contract that hampers them down the road, and I can't imagine this $17m per leaves them enough room to build a contender for this year and still stay under $189m.

    I think Cano determines the 189 mil issue.

    This could also be a sign that they are very confident that A-Rod's suspension will be upheld...

    Are we the fans becoming bean counters now? McCann is a very good catcher. We just acquired one of the best Cs in the game, and certainly one of the best FAs on the market. Interesting how many of the comments here are numbers crunching his salary as opposed to analyzing what his skills bring to the table for this team.

    Possibly. If they sign Cano though, I'm not sure how much room they have left to put together a competitive starting rotation and get a 3B. Hopefully they know what they are doing.
