Robinson Cano: $300 million number did not come from me

Robinson Cano

 

As the New York Yankees prepare to pack it in for the year, Robinson Cano and his future with the Yankees is at the forefront of their headlines.

Cano was deflective with the New York Post when they asked him about the rumor that he was demanding a $300 million deal from  the Yankees.

“I know what we’re doing and what we’re not doing,” Cano said. “I don’t listen to anybody else.”

Cano shuffled while  insisting that his camp did not leak the gaudy contract number and that the information may not be coming from the most reliable sources.

“I didn’t say which side said what. I just said it wasn’t my side,” Cano said.

“Honestly, people are going to say a source or a friend said something or whatever,” Cano said. “I just ignore it. They are little things and don’t affect me.”

Cano has the potential to be the next true face of a franchise that is waving goodbye to many of it’s legends.

He stated that he won’t allow the future to taint his appreciation for the present.

“It’s still the same since spring training,” Cano said. “I’m going to wait for the right time, especially with [Thursday] night, seeing [Mariano Rivera] pitch at the Stadium one last time and now with Andy [Pettitte] pitching his last game. There are a lot of good things happening and I just want to enjoy that.”

Cano was firm in letting his feelings be known about the Yankees.

“Don’t get me wrong, I love this organization,” Cano said. “I love the Yankee fans. I just have to get ready for today and then think about everything after the season.”

That may be true, but with a dismal season wrapping up, Cano will have to publicly and privately address this issue.

    At age 30, I think he’s looking at a 6 year deal, probably $180M.
