A day after sources said Robinson Cano was looking for more than $300 million over 10 years in his upcoming contract the second baseman continued to deflect questions about his future. “I know what we’re doing and what we’re not doing” Cano said before Friday night’s game against the Astros at Minute Maid Park. “I don’t listen to anybody else.” He insisted the $310 million number hadn’t been leaked by his camp. When asked why he thought the Yankees had floated the number Cano said: “I didn’t say which side said what. I just said it wasn’t my side.” The Yankees according to sources countered Cano’s request with an offer in the $160 million range. Whether the two sides can come to a middle ground will go a long way in determining the team’s future for the coming years. “It’s still the same since spring training” Cano said. “I’m going to wait for the right time especially with [Thursday] night seeing [Mariano Rivera] pitch at the Stadium one last time and now with Andy [Pettitte] pitching his last game. There are a lot of good things happening and I just want to enjoy that.” He refused to give any clues about which way he may be leaning or whether Sunday could be his last game as a Yankee when the season comes to a close.
