The New York Yankees are talking big numbers in negotiations with second baseman Robinson Cano. Fansided reported on Oct. 8, 2013, "New York Yankees owner: Robinson Cano will get ‘solid offer’." New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano is said to really be looking for a 10-year deal which is worth around $300 million in the offseason when he will become a free agent.
Although Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner has said he doesn’t feel like the Yankees are “ready to do something like that," he says that a solid offer will be made to Cano. Steinbrenner has gone on to say the Yankees are going to try the best they can to keep Cano. Cano had an unbelievable season, as he batted .314 with 27 home runs and 107 RBIs in 160 games.
ESPN has reported, "Yanks wary of 10-year deal for Cano." Although the Yankees really do want to keep Cano, after getting burned by Alex Rodriguez's current 10-year deal, Steinbrenner has said he wouldn't give free agent Robinson Cano a contract which runs a decade. Still, the exciting negotiations with Cano are being followed carefully by fans.
