• Cano Wants Yanks To Rip Up His Contract

    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.

      Actually, the Yanks would probably be wise to offer him a four year extension, through age 32-33 (depending on when his birthday is). May as well try and nip the negotiation in the bud and get him a few dollars cheaper over the life of the deal.

      @ MJ Recanati:
      He’s a Boras client, so I doubt they’d go cheaper.

      Personally, I think he should honor the contract; the Yanks didn’t talk about renegotiating his contract after his 2008 season.

      This is why I hate Scott Boras. The World series isn’t over, the Yanks number one priority will be C.C. and he calls now?

      After C.C.(LET HIM WALK!) is done, like November if I was Cash I would clearly take a call about extending/new contract with Cano, but not now. But the Yankee way has been to wait for the current contract to end and pay through the nose later.
