Probably I the best case scenario is that he has a semi-decent second half and they can fob him off to an AL team for another bad contract and a large helping of Robbie's salary.

Danny Duffy?

Man we’re about a year away and rebounding performance away from that even becoming remotely possible. The contract was always seen as bad but now this season takes the cat out of the bag as far as the age regression is concerned. Before this year you could ( and I did!) reasonably claim that he was an outlier, no signs of decline, etc.

Now he’s in Pujols territory. Nobody is swapping a bad contract for that because other than the aforementioned Pujol, there really isn’t anything close to as bad of a contract. Danny Duffy is a backend starter being paid like a mid rotation guy. Cano is now an albatross being paid like an all star. Major difference.

They don’t need to cut Cano yet. They just need to stop playing him everyday. He should be viewed as the first LH bat off the bench with an occasional start. In the offseason make him learn 1B as a backup.

After they dump Frazier for payroll relief, the everyday lineup should be:

McNeil 2B
Alonso 1B
Conforto RF
Davis 3B
Smith LF
Ramos/Nido C
Hech SS
Rosario CF

Who cares about defense at this point of season. Get young guys ABs and innings in field.
