ESPN New York reports:

Robinson Cano has not budged off his request of a 10-year, $310 million contract, a source with knowledge of the asking price told ESPN New York on Monday.

Having a bit of a trying day, so thanks for the laugh, Mr. Cano. Or thanks to the Yankees person leaking that in an effort to make Cano look unreasonable and thus easier, from a P.R. perspective, to let him walk away. Could be either one.

Either way: I’ll be shocked if he’s signed before Christmas.

    Omar Infante have your agent call the Yankees right away. The Yankees are going to need a 2nd baseman if Cano doesn’t get his head out of his butt.

    Some team should slip in a 2 year 62 million dollar offer and see if he bites.

    7 years at $25 million per year is $175 million and even sounds like too much.

    1. Cano doesn’t get any of that.
    2. 5 years from now Mike Trout gets all of that.
    3. 6 years from now Jay Z is all over the media screaming racism.

    The Yankees can’t afford to lose Cano. They’re already trying to sign every FA SS. But I don’t see how they can give him 10 years. He’s probably worth close to $31M per year but 10 years???? Look at the Angels and Albert Pujols. The Angels are stuck. Cano is a GREAT ball player but his abilities are going to decline in a few years.

    How can you say Cano is a great player and not laugh. He is not even close to being worth $310 million. Any team that would pay he close to that is crazy. Cano things he is the next Ruth,Mantle or Williams. He may be closer to the next good player on the down side of his playing time. Let Jay Z (who ever the hell this is) pay him himself. Just tired of these over rated players thinking they are Gods gift to baseball. Lets compare stats to some of the all time great 2nd basemen and then talk money.

    Salaries are out of control and the dumbass fans continues to pay. Free market system makes it ok but I refuse to go to or watch a game I played growing up and going to 50 plus games a year. I don’t recognize the game anymore, three hour plus games, more international players, might as well call the league Central/Caribbean League verse American/National League. Additionally, TV cost are out of control too- we don’t support the advertisers either, they increase the price and drop the quantities of their products to cover expense of commercials, which if I did watch on TV would fast forward thru anyway. Professional sports are for the rich consumers and big business, the family of four can’t afford anymore. At least football is still enjoyable to watch- but catching up with all the fines and new rules making it hard to watch at times.
