When no one has ever hit .400 since 1941, Cano was supposed to do it? What on Earth? I'm not even sure what to make of the "brains" comment, outside of it reading as a borderline dog whistle.
The point is he has the talent, but does not have the brains necessary to accomplish it. Not much displine at the plate at all.

The luxury tax isn't new (it dates back to 2003). What is new is that Hal Steinbrenner doesn't want to pay it anymore.
Hal doesn't want the percentage to go up to 50%. He wants the reset. 50% is just stupid, especially when you see where that "Yankee tax" goes.

Explaining the luxary tax.

And I don't get how anyone can hate Barry Bonds. He's only the greatest hitter in human history.
He's a prick that left my Pirates.
The true measure of a man is how he treats someone that can do him absolutely no good.
