Projecting Robinson CanoBy
Robinson Cano‘s inevitable contract extension figures to be the most significant big picture topic in Yankeeland over the next 12 months, and we’re going to see this thing dissected from all angles between now and then. Over at Pinstriped Bible today, Bill Parker took a look at some similar players (truly elite second baseman through their age 29 season) throughout recent history and examined the second halves of their careers to get an idea of what the future may have in store for Robbie. Most of the players referenced remained elite through age 32 before falling off (sometimes drastically) and more often than not, changing positions. It’s a short-ish but very interesting read, so make sure you check it out.
