Robinson Cano Testing Free Agency, Reportedly Asking For Monster Contract and Money
On Wednesday night the New York Yankees chances of making the 2013 MLB playoffs were officially trounced. To make matters worse, they may not have Robinson Cano back next season.
According to ESPN, Cano, a free agent, says that he is going to take his time and test out free agency before making any decision. While many believe that Cano leaving the Yankees is very possible, Cano is staying quiet.
Nobody said I’m leaving; nobody said I’m staying. I haven’t decided anything yet. Let’s see what happens after the World Series.

New reports have surfaced as of Thursday morning that the 30-year-old second baseman is asking for a pretty large contract, along with his new agent, Jay Z. The reports say that Cano is seeking a 10 year deal worth around $305 million.
If that is true, it looks like Robinson Cano is the latest player to try and secure his future somewhere with one giant deal. The question is, will anyone be biting?
