Robinson Cano will not get the 10-year $300 million dollar deal that he allegedly desires.New York Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner spoke with ESPN New York and simultaneously expressed his admiration for Cano while putting his foot down.
“I don’t feel this organization is ready to do something like that,” Steinbrenner told The Michael Kay Show. ”No, I do not.
“We’ll see. I know that is a number that is out there now. We’ll see if he gets it, how much he wants to be in New York. But, again, I can promise it is going to be a very, very solid offer that we do make because we are going to try. We are going to try the best we can to keep him.”
Steinbrenner went on to state that the Cano is not a “must sign” player.
“I’m optimistic and I know that we are going to make him a very, very good offer,” Steinbrenner said. “Is anybody an absolute must-to-sign? No. And that’s nothing against Robby. [It's] just not reasonable to assume that about anybody. We are going to do what we can. We’ve certainly conveyed to Robby we want him back and we want him to be a career Yankee. We’ll just have to see what transpires here.”
The Yankees are still smarting by the pact that tied them to Alex Rodriguez for what seems like eternity.
Cano is a must sign for them whether they want to own that fact or not.
The longer this goes on, the messier it will become and another mess is something that the Yankees should avoid at all costs.
