It is no secret that the New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano is a free agent at the end of this season.
Robinson Cano and Derek Jeter – 8/9/10 – Yankee Stadium.
It is assumed that Cano will be the future face of the franchise since Derek Jeter is about to turn 39 years old in a few weeks and a season or two from retiring.
If you are a big star in you’re prime with pending free agency looming and you want the dollars, super agent Scott Boras is your man.
So it was not surprising when Cano signed on Scott Boras last season, but the Yankees sure couldn’t of been happy about it.
Boras squeezes every dollar out of a team for his clients, so when Cano dropped him for New York local and rap star mogul Jay Z a month ago everyone felt a sense of relief.
Jay Z is a lifelong Yankees fan and a staple at games.
I was there when he preformed his hit song “Empire State of Mind” before the start to Game 2 of the 2009 World Series, which became the theme song for that championship team.
