Yankees President Tells Robinson Cano To Get ‘A Little More Realistic’ About Contract
The Yankees are telling Cano how it is.
After reports that the Yankees and Cano still remain far apart in salary talks, Yankees president Randy Levine pretty much confirmed it with this statement:
“We want Robbie back; we think Robbie is terrific,…But we have no interest in doing any 10-year deals and no interest in paying $300 million to any player. Until he gets a little more realistic, we have nothing to talk about.”
It’s been reported that the Yankees are prepared to offer Cano a seven-year deal for the sum of $165 million. The bidding war for Cano’s services are so far showing to be far from totally amicable, after the Yankees have made a point to mention that Cano fails to draw big ratings.
Look to see a back and forth between the Yankees and Cano as the hot stove warms up.
