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.

Contrary to reports swirling around the Internet, New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera would rather not be the starter for this year’s MLB All-Star Game.
When asked why he’d rather not start the game, Rivera said, “And the reason why I say that is it’s not what I do. What I do is close the games, I don’t start the games. It’s a privilege and honor, but I’m not contemplating...
Unfortunately, they'll soon have to drop the zombie nickname, because the World War Z corpses actually show decent speed.You can win the pennant with zombies who climb walls like Ichiro.
NEW YORK (AP) -- Ichiro Suzuki homered off Tanner Scheppers with two outs in the ninth inning, lifting the New York Yankees to a 4-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night.
Suzuki's drive to right-center was the Yankees' fourth home run of the game, three coming off Japanese ace Yu Darvish, and it helped New York improve to 4-3 on a homestand that ends after two...

When New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano dropped
agent Scott Boras in favor of another group – which included rapper Jay-Z – there
was thought that an agreement on a contract extension would soon follow. However,
this hasn’t been the case, and Jon Heyman of CBS Sports notes that it’s clear the
sides are nowhere near a deal at this point.
