Robinson Cano has lowered his asking price “very slightly”

Nov 27, 2013, 4:21 PM EDT

A couple of Robinson Cano tidbits from Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News:


That part about the $310 million is interesting, because Cano’s people were trying to spin that as what Cano wanted way back during the season to forego free agency altogether, not something they wanted now. Guess not. As for the “very slightly?” I’d read that as the characterization from a team source who is not impressed with where Cano is right now.

How Cano gets out of $300 million land and down into a territory where teams start fighting over him is an interesting question. Because right now he’s not giving anyone an incentive to do anything other than wait him out.

    right now Cano has a lot of things going against him. the teams that could afford to give a hefty salary are set at 2B; the most recent megadeals for position players have quickly turned bad so it’s going to make any team gun shy; what he is asking is so outrageous any teams other than the Yankees that truly need a 2B are simply going to look elsewhere.
