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.

BEST OF MAXIM
All across the field, the New York Yankees will have questions to answer. But now that the Yanks have re-signed manager Joe Girardi to four-year deal, the next big task for the Yankees will be to bring back their best player in Robinson Cano. In 2013, Cano was the Bombers’ best player, and they’ll need him back for next season.
Cano led the Yankees with a .314 batting average...
Andy Martino of the NY Daily News reports that the Mets aren’t expected to pursue free agents Robinson Cano or Jose Abreu according to “major league sources familiar with the team’s thinking,” .
A high-ranking team official recently told the Star-Ledger’s Jorge Castillo that Alderson’s scouts came away “impressed” with Abreu’s power. But obviously (and predictably...
The New York Mets have been connected to both Robinson Cano and Jose Abreu, but don’t expect them to sign either of them. They may check in on both of them, but don’t expect either one of them to end up with the Mets.
While the Mets may like Jose Abreu and his power potential, you shouldn’t expect them to pursue him, according to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News. The...
I was reading the solidly-above-replacement-level Yankees blog rlyw.net this morning, and I came across a very interesting table. It listed the Runs Created at 2B for each team this year. I won't reproduce the whole list (seriously, check out that blog, it's interesting), but I share one thing:
NYY: 123 RC
CHC: 45 RC
That's a difference of 78 RUNS. It's really hard...
The Yankees began their offseason by focusing on re-signing manager Joe Girardi as quickly as possible and preventing him from hitting the open market. As Hal Steinbrenner made clear on Tuesday the team will take a very different approach with Robinson Cano.
“It sounds like he wants to go out and test the market and talk to whoever he needs or wants to talk to" the Yankees...
Nearly every time Sandy Alderson speaks of increased payroll flexibility this winter the Mets GM attaches a footnote that underlines his deeply-felt belief in fiscal responsibility: We're not going to throw money around he finds a way to say just because we can.
Now we can apply that logic to two specific players Robinson Cano and Cuban first baseman Jose Abreu. According to...
Robinson Cano may be back with New York in 2014, but that may be more because of a lack of options than anything else.
Cano is a free agent this offseason at a time when long-term contracts for big stars just aren’t panning out, from Albert Pujols‘ poor start with the Angels to Alex Rodriguez‘s career continuing to go off the rails with the Yankees. With Magic Johnson of the...
The New York Yankees announced Wednesday that manager Joe Girardi has signed a four-year contract extension that could keep him managing the club through the 2017 season. The financial terms of the contract were not immediately known, but the Yankees said publicly that they
New York Yankees principal owner Hal Steinbrenner took to the radio today to discuss the issues surrounding team, mentioning he was “disappointed” by the Yankees’ performance this season, but reiterated several times that the Yankees are not going to break the bank this offseason to make it back to the playoffs in 2014.
“It’s important, and it’s certainly a goal we take...
New York Yankees inherited owner Hal Steinbrenner was on the Mike Francesa Show yesterday, and all I can say is he still doesn’t get it.

Hal acknowledged that the 2013 season was a disappointment.
He also admitted that the Yankees development within their farm system has not panned out as they were hoping.
So I see that Hal Steinbrenner made the media rounds yesterday, telling reporters and sports yakkers gems like "I think Brian [Cashman] did a great job" as general manager. (What high standards, eh? If Cashman did a great job this year, then I would hate to think what Hal considers a bad job?) I wonder what took Hal so long to finally speak out about the season. After all...
The Mariners intend to extend a one-year qualifying offer to Kendrys Morales not necessarily because they are hoping for the draft-pick compensation but because they want to retain him.
They may just end up with the draft pick though.
Morales will turn down the qualifying offer as he'd expect to hit it much bigger in a market flush with cash but bereft of power (Nelson Cruz...
Yesterday, the billion dollar voice of Yankee owner Hal Steinbrenner appeared unto ESPN and WFAN radio, assuring his lost tribe that 2013 was an aberration, and that His Ownership will do what it takes to put the Bombers back on course next season.As Hal spoke, the Cardinals, Tigers, As and Rays - franchises that win year after year on far less than the Yankees spend - were still...
New York Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner expressed a sense of urgency Tuesday in resolving the status of manager Joe Girardi who is receiving interest from the Chicago Cubs.
"I think both sides understand and I think Joe understands and believes we need to get this done sooner rather than later because of (the Yankees' upcoming organizational meetings...
Brian Cashman, general manager of the New York Yankees, met with his scouting department on Tuesday. This was the second day of a week long plan to discuss the team's off season plans. One part of the plan is to decrease the salary under the $189 million luxury-tax threshold.
Managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner insisted that this will be done in a way that will not...
