Robinson Cano is a bad man, but in this huge world where there are struggles for families to make ends meet every single day, with parents are trying to buy gifts for their children around this holiday season, and people still recovering from Hurricane Sandy, maybe, just maybe a story about Robinson Cano going for huge dollars at the end of the 2013 season isn't the best thing for Cano's reputation. It's just bad timing.
According to Mark Feinsand and Christian Red, piece HERE, Robinson Cano will most likely NOT take the hometown discount at the end of 2013. Sure, it makes sense, it's a free agent year. When that happens you try and go big if you're a ball player. Nick Swisher is going through it right now. I get it, I just hate the process. Why? Because it gets nasty, that's why.
According to 1 source, Robinson Cano will look for a monster contract much like ARod did at one time. Sadly, Scott Boras is Cano's agent, so, much like it's predicted around baseball... Cano will collect as much as he can, Boras will smile ear to ear and Yankee fans will in fact turn on Cano when, and if he leaves the Bronx. It's a wicked web, no one likes to see this... no one.
In the Feinsand piece, a source said: "He’s (Cano) not giving them a hometown discount, and they seem to be more interested in keeping their payroll down than winning... He knows he’s the best player on the Yankees ... There’s no reason for him not to be paid that way.”
