Robinson Cano’s effort to get his two club contract options deleted and a new deal hasn’t penetrated the wax in the Yankees’ ears.
Cano’s agent, Scott Boras, attempted to contact general manager Brian Cashman about redoing Cano’s deal and has been met with silence.
“I called Cash to ask about dropping the options and he hasn’t returned the call,” Boras told The Post.
The Yankees hold two options on the 29-year-old second baseman for $14 million next season and $15 million for 2013. There are $2 million buyouts for both years. The options, which were part of a four-year deal worth $30 million signed by Cano when Boras didn’t represent him, are a package deal and can’t be split.
Can’t blame the Yankees for ignoring this request. I just hope that Cano doesn’t start to dog it now, if he’s not happy with his contract.
