The Yankees would be crazy to trade Cano anywhere.Just one year ago he was being acclaimed as the best second baseman in the A.L.,capable of a 330avg. and 25-30hrs.You do not compromise on position to fill another,especially given Beltran's cost.The Yankees also do not have a position player to play second base in the organization,and the Orlando Hudson rumor is not the answer.Kennedy has the tools to be a major league contributor and should be given the opportunity to do so.

I would be very upset if the yankees do make this trade although im sure they won't. Cano had 1 bad year and is still a .303 lifetime hitter, why trade him for an older player??? The yankees can try and improve their centerfield situation without damaging their 2nd base position. You would just be filling in one hole while emptying another. Senseless trade.
