I’m a little late to the party but as the saying goes, “better late than never”, right?
Anyway, according to sources Robinson Cano‘s agent (Jay-Z) had dinner with Jeff Wilpon and Sandy Alderson, the GM and manager of the New York Mets. Cano was not there for the meeting but it seemed at the time that the Mets had a legitimate interest in Cano.
The Mets might not sign Cano, but it shouldn’t be a joke that the Mets have met with Cano’s agent to possibly talk business. Yankees president Randy Levine said in an article with The Daily News today that the Mets could have Cano–but only at his $300 Million asking price.
The Robinson Cano contract saga could last all through the winter, maybe even before pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training on Valentines Day. From the last couple of days, it picture has become clearer for the teams involved in Cano:
1) The Mets might not sign Cano, but just showed interest which is what every team does during the offseason.
2) The Yankees might lose Robinson Cano to his ludicrous contract demands.
It’s times like these where you kind of wish you had Alex Rodriguez news right now…
