Friday morning notes: Cano quiet about contract negotiations

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Mar 01, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Robinson Cano didn’t add many details to yesterday’s revelation that the Yankees have extended a contract offer to the second baseman.

“I don’t want to talk about this,” Cano said. “After today, I don’t want to be a distraction to the team. … I’m just going to focus on baseball and I’m not going to let anything get in my head.”

Cano wouldn’t say whether the Yankees offer was rejected or kept on the table. He also deferred to agent Scott Boras when asked whether he would be open to continuing negotiations during the season.

“I’m going to let Scott decide that,” Cano said.

• Michael Pineda threw a 30-pitch bullpen this morning. He threw both fastballs and changeups and gave a big thumbs up afterway in the clubhouse. It was the second time that Pineda threw a 30-pitch bullpen with changeups this spring. Yesterday, Brian Cashman said that the Yankees have been impressed by Pineda’s early work.

• Lefty Cesar Cabral remains on the same rehab schedule as Pineda. He also threw a 30-pitch bullpen with fastballs and changeups. He hasn’t thrown sliders yet, but Cabral said he has no concerns about breaking balls being more difficult on his elbow. “I feel ready to pitch,” he said. Cabral said he expects to be in a game by mid April. Pineda will be a few weeks behind Cabral at that point because Pineda has to be stretched out.

• Still recovering from that sore lower back, David Adams began taking dry swings earlier this week. He said he still has to check with the training staff, but there’s a chance he’ll be allowed to throw and take some light ground balls today. Adams has said for a while that the back is no longer bothering him, but I have to think the Yankees learned a lesson from Austin Romine last spring. That could explain their slow approach to the relatively minor back injuries to Adams and Phil Hughes.

• Kevin Youkilis is back in the Yankees lineup. No word yet on how many at-bats he’ll get. Joe Girardi hinted yesterday that Youkilis might get only one at-bat today and become more of a full player tomorrow.

• Brett Gardner and Slade Heathcott each played yesterday, Melky Mesa is getting a turn in left field today, so Adonis Garcia is scheduled to play today’s entire game in center field.

• Boone Logan will face hitters today. It’s his first sim game of the spring. He’ll pitch to Luke Murton and Ramon Flores.

• Hiroki Kuroda makes his spring debut this afternoon. He’s facing Roy Halladay.

Today’s sides: Nik Turley and Bryan Mitchell.

Today’s second string: C Gary Sanchez, 1B Greg Bird, 2B Walter Ibarra, SS Gil Velazquez, 3B Addison Maruszak, LF Ronnier Mustelier, CF none, RF Zoilo Almonte, DH Bobby Wilson

Today’s scheduled relievers: Dave Robertson, Joba Chamberlain, Cody Eppley, Vidal Nuno. Relief prospect Mark Montgomery is listed as a backup, not likely to get in the game but possible.

    Blake-

    Good morning. Are you still on board? I liked your lineup suggestion. The only concern I have is Teixeira followed by Hafner vs righties. After watching “The Shift” used against them in ST, especially vs Hafner with a short RF’er[2nd baseman], throwing him out at first from RF. I’m concerned that if they will not try to hit the other way that both will frequently end rallies with inning ending DP’s.

    As I mentioned before the two teams in order that used the shift most often last year are the Rays and Orioles, so that will account for approximately close to 25% of all games that the Yankees will face a shift.

    Of course you need the pitchers to locate the pitch to maximize the chance the batter will hit into the shift.

    I’m beginning to think that the best batters the Yankees have that can hit it with regularity, the other way are Gardner, Ichiro, Jeter and Cano.

    Your thoughts? Anyone

  3. Shame Spencer March 1st, 2013 at 9:36 am

    What about a line up of:

    Gardner
    Ichiro
    Jeter
    Cano
    Texiera
    Hafner
    Youk
    Cervelli
    Almonte

    I don’t think Joe will bat Jeter in the 3 hole, he’ll probably keep Gardner or Ichiro at the bottom of the line up, but I think Trader is right and those three will be the guys getting on base the most consistently.

  4. Shame Spencer March 1st, 2013 at 9:37 am

    Another guy who has been impressive so far is Kyle Roller. Hasn’t had many hits, but I like his approach at the plate. Just got under one there in the 9th inning or would have had a game winning homer. Really battled up there at bat. He’s got huge arms, projects to have some good power. Where does he start this year? Tampa or Trenton?

  6. smartchoices March 1st, 2013 at 9:39 am

    The only good thing about the $189 is it would keep them from overpaying a regressng player on the downside of 30. So much for that. To think the team is now left with 1 yr deals for aging stars after this offseason because of the $189 and now they’re willing to break it for another excessive contract. Disappointing. 6/$117 or trade him for a cost-controlled bat and infield help.

    On the upside, the crop of young OFers is exciting to watch and look forward to. And I think we see one vet (Rivera) and either Almonte/Mesa to stand in while Granderdon is down.

  7. Tackelberry March 1st, 2013 at 9:40 am

    I don’t think Joe will bat Jeter in the 3 hole, he’ll probably keep Gardner or Ichiro at the bottom of the line up, but I think Trader is right and those three will be the guys getting on base the most consistently.

    _____________________________________
    I worry about Jeter in the 2 hole becuase he hits into alot of DPs. If Gardner or Ichiro leads off and gets on then they have to run alot to stay out of DPs, and Jeter has always been a good hit and run guy

  8. Shame Spencer March 1st, 2013 at 9:40 am

    Sweeny says: @YankeesWFAN

    My opinion: We are very quickly reaching the day where Boras/Yanks halt Cano negotiations until after the season.

  9. Shame Spencer March 1st, 2013 at 9:42 am

    Tackle – Those were my thoughts exactly.. you can avoid the DP with more speed on the bases. I bet he makes the line up like this, though:

    Gardner/Ichiro
    Jeter
    Tex
    Cano
    Youk/Hafner
    Hafner/Youk
    Cervelli
    Almonte/Diaz/Rivera
    Gardner/Ichiro

    yea that’s a bit of a concern….of course if you shift it makes it hard to turn double plays.

    Smartchoices-

    Agree. Boras is located n LA. If you are Robinson Cano, and Scott Boras is your agent, and you know that the Yankees are losing some 10-12 regulars to FA after this season, and that the FO has only given some “lip” service to maybe going over the 189M[ really it's more like 177M-to account for the projected costs of player benefits], then why sign an extension when there are now many teams that are increasing ticket sales and the FA market after this season is weak, making Cano the premier FA on the market?

    Only two things that would crush the chance at a major payday by not signing an extension:

    Drugs
    Major Injury.

    Thoughts?

    see fans…..we tried!

  20. Yankee Trader March 1st, 2013 at 9:59 am

    This is why Gardner should bat leadoff:

    “For all of Gardner’s solid outfield play, where his speed allows him to cover huge chunks of real estate, his greatest asset could be his patience in the batter’s box. Over his five-year career, according to FanGraphs.com, Gardner has swung at only 33.8 percent of the pitches thrown to him. Consider that Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer had the lowest swing rate in the major leagues last season, at 35.4 percent.”

    “Of course, taking pitches — and make no mistake, Gardner takes many — is only one piece of the puzzle. More important, when Gardner decides to swing, he makes contact 90.4 percent of the time. Last season, only seven players in baseball had higher rates of contact. His patience and precision make for a rare combination in a league of free swingers.”

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02......html?_r=0

    He has averaged 4.3 pitches/plate appearance. If he utilizes the bunt more often he should get his BA up. Needs to stay healthy.

    This is an interesting point.. but he and SJ are sort of making the Dodgers sound like a mom and pop… if they start winning, they’re just as marketable in the US as the Yankees, IMO.

  23. DONNYBROOK March 1st, 2013 at 10:07 am

    Cashman has gotta be the dumbest GM in MLB. First, he steps all over Hal by blabbering about the Cano negotiations, and then, (once again), devalues Any trade value that Nunez has, by saying the guy is “Not an offensive juggernaut”, and “he just does does not profile” as an offensive player. Cashman is still smarting from having demoted Nunez, and then watching him be the Only Yankee with a bat that mattered vs Detroit in the ALCS. Hal has “F Trooped” him, as evidenced by Cashman’s impotence at the Winter Meetings. Still, Cashman continues spouting off at any and every opportunity, in a vein public attempt to portray his retaining some sort of relevance in Yankee Land. Not only is this type of conduct pathetic and embarassing, but when Cashman down-grades a player like Nunez, he is affecting that player’s performance on the field, and the value of said player on the trade market. Maybe Cashman wants out of his Front Office straight jacket, and is popping off in order to get Hal to pull-the-plug. It really does Not matter what Cashman’s motivation is. Cashman is doing damage to the Yankees.

    Blake- Thanks. This is a very well done read and you should post this later so everone will have a chance to read it.

    Conclusion below:

    “The Yankees are at risk this summer because they have several important players — hard to fine three more important players than the starting shortstop, ace left-hander and closer, no? — coming off injury while their key offseason imports represent offensive downgrades from their predecessors. All of those problems are compounded by a general lack of depth and uncertainty regarding the ability to take on payroll. New York painted itself into this corner by willfully downgrading the offense to satisfy their self-imposed payroll cap, leaving them vulnerable in key spots. They’re still a very dangerous team capable of winning the AL East, but the cracks in the dam are growing larger by the day.”

    Trader,
    yes good piece…

    Shame,
    as I said yesterday….I think the one thing we don’t consider is if Cano really wants to stay….if he does then the Yanks will offer him enough to facilitate that. If he wants absolute top dollar the he’s probably going to LA…….

    but Cano has a legit chance to be in the conversation as the greatest 2B ever…..and which stadium is best going to help him get there? Dodger stadium isn’t an easy place to hit….it’s a pitchers park…..legacy wise the Yankees are a better place for him because it’s one team and because the park is better…..I don’t know if those things matter to him….

  27. Yankee Trader March 1st, 2013 at 10:16 am

    Goodbye for now.

    Per my posts above:

    Gardner should bat leadoff.-link
    Cano will test FA and Boras will have many teams bidding for his services.
    Blake’s link to the Mike Axisa article is a very good read.

    Have a great day everyone.

  28. ron March 1st, 2013 at 10:16 am

    The smartest thing to do is let the dodgers sign cano for 10/250,and contribute to their demise.
    You don’t build great teams by signing 30/31 year old players to long contracts.
    They might be great in the short term,but contracts like that hurts teams more than it helps.

  29. blake March 1st, 2013 at 10:19 am

    My feeling is that if Boras and Cano think the Yanks are in the ball park of what he could get on the open market then they might take the deal a year early…..because they should…..but I think the Yanks will at least need to be in the 8/200 range to do a deal…..

    like I said if the Yanks did make a legit offer it was probably 6 years and Boras is probably at 10……if the Yanks will go to 8 now then they may take it…..I don’t know if they would or even if they should though…..the answer to that question really depends on how strict this budget will be going forward and only Hal knows the answer to that.

  30. Shame Spencer March 1st, 2013 at 10:20 am

    I don’t know if those things matter to him….

    We also don’t know how he view’s the future of the Yankees. Looking at the Dodgers line up and their willingness to spend….. I dunno, he might feel like he has a better chance to win there (assuming that matters to him).

  34. DONNYBROOK March 1st, 2013 at 10:28 am

    This “concept” negotiating is pure BS. The Yanks just do Not want to admit that they Will negotiate with\sign certain players during their current contract, and other players they will Not. After the angst created with the current A-Rod contract, the Yanks would be Crazy to sign Cano for 7yrs or longer. Of course, there is always the possibility that should the Yanks Not sign Cano, Hal would just take the $$$ saved and jam it into his bell bottoms. I’ll take that chance.

    “Only two things that would crush the chance at a major payday by not signing an extension:

    Drugs
    Major Injury.”

    The drugs thing is always a question, but I’d like to think Cano’s a smart guy. You can’t really read anything into it, but Cano did make that gesture to distance himself from Cabrera at the All Star game last year.

    There were some comments that the Yankees are only saying this to give themselves cover for when they let Cano go, but I think they intend to do whatever it takes to keep him because Cano’s all they got for a new ‘face of the franchise’ and they have a history of excessive contracts. There is the distant hope that other teams will be smarter about the money for over 30s and not drive his FA price up, but there’s always a team – look at the LAA and Hamilton. Fair chance they’ll regret that.

  40. Shame Spencer March 1st, 2013 at 10:39 am

    Plus, look at how guys like Tex are being categorize now lol.. the fans/the media are hating on him because of the big money deal. Arod’s been booed regularly for most of his tenure.

  41. DONNYBROOK March 1st, 2013 at 10:42 am

    No way a guy that shrinks from being the “center piece”, can be the next “face of the franchise”. Once Jeet went down vs Detroit, Cano received a battlefield commission and became that center piece. We know how that ended.

    ———————-

    Being ‘the man’ on the Yankees isn’t usually an enviable position to be in. Especially with the future of the team being a bit up in the air. Cano might be thinking ‘for me to get my money, they’re going to not spend in other areas’ – if he goes to the Dodgers he knows they’ll spend even after giving him $250.

  46. MTU March 1st, 2013 at 10:50 am

    All that Robinson Cano has ever known are the NYY’s.

    Things being equal, or close to equal, I’d imagine he’d love to remain a Yankee for life.

    That said, If they are not, he’s gone. Boras will see to it that the Yankees pony up. He’ll set up a competition for Cano’s services.

    I learned a while ago that in 99% of cases it’s all about the money despite protestations to the contrary.

    Lol, a team that might buy a 26 year old Andrus. The Dodgers might not spend smartly but they’re going to eat whatever money they have to.. they won’t let big dollar contracts stop them from signing more big dollar contracts. Even if they lose their overhead is absurd.

  48. comnsnse March 1st, 2013 at 10:52 am

    If the Yankees have made what they call a “substantial offer”, I would believe it would be in the 20-22mm. dollar range for 5 years when Cano would be 35.

    Given the Boras strategy to always set up a bidding war the Yankees should absolutely consider quietly shopping him around the all Star break.

    Their return would be tremendous and should be headed by a MLB ready third baseman, pitching and yes, catching! Getting draft choices with at least 3 year major league windows if ever is ridiculous.

  49. bruceb March 1st, 2013 at 11:00 am

    This is why Cashman should have been looking to trade Cano in the winter. I know it’s hard to believe that a ballclub like the Yankees would ever consider trading their star player but another mega-deal for a 30-year-old player just doesn’t fit with our DNA right now. We have so many needs in so many areas (for 2014 and beyond), we need to spread that kind of money across a number of players.

    I can envisage a scenario where Cano’s value actually drops during the course of the season. if the Yanks stink (and that’s a real possibility given the age of their lineup) he might well lose interest and not put up his normal numbers. You could argue that would work in the Yanks’ favor as maybe he won’t be so appealing to teams like the Dodgers. Either way, we can’t be held to ransom by El Bandito Boras…again.

  50. Against All Odds March 1st, 2013 at 11:01 am

    The Yankees are not trading Cano

  51. pkyankfan69 March 1st, 2013 at 11:04 am

    The only way the Yanks COULD trade Cano at this point would be a scenario where they really tanked big time in the first half and were virtually out of it prior to the trade deadline. The Yanks would be in a position to have a major yard sale with all of their short term deals if that scenario happened to occur. Doubt that happens though unless there are major injuries.

  52. Captain Clutch March 1st, 2013 at 11:06 am

    A significant offer to Boras is $200m. If the Yanks aren’t close to that amount then Boras probably sees it as a waste of time to talk to them. I really doubt the Yankees are anywhere close to that number. Like Sherman said Hal announcing that they talked about a significant offer is just for the fans to hear. Cano is getting $200m. If the Yanks aren’t offering that then he is out the door. The Yanks offer was probably $50m below that.

    8/200 would probably get a deal done now
    ——————-

    Agree. On the open market he might get 9/$225m. You can guarantee that the Dodgers plus the Mariners and Nationals are going to take this to an area that the Yanks aren’t comfortable going. I really think it’s now or never if he is going to remain a Yankee. But it doesn’t seem like Hal is willing to really negotiate now.

    sign cano. they have the money and they have nobody who can replace him in the order. and they wont be overpaying him til after arod, tex and cc are done.

    i wanted them to trade him this offseason, but that ship has sailed. they won’t be out of it by the trade deadline, so trading him then is out of the question. and you cant let him walk away.

    so sign him already.

    and cano’s price is going to go even higher after he wins the MVP this year.

    Cano for Kemp! :lol:

  61. RadioKev March 1st, 2013 at 11:42 am

    Which signing was worse? Teixeira, Adrian Gonzalez, or Crawford? Think about it.

  62. Against All Odds March 1st, 2013 at 11:46 am

    I would say Crawford

    and cano’s price is going to go even higher after he wins the MVP this year.

    ——–

    Uh, let’s see him post 30 HR and 100 RBI, A-Rod’s numbers in his five-month 2009, first.

    Cano is too old to give more than four years to.

    Four years at $25M a year for $100M total would give Cano the second-biggest contract for a homegrown Yankee. It’s only $89M less than what Jeter got for a decade. He’d make more than what Sabathia, who is more valuable to the Yankees than he is, will make 2013-16. It would also be more than what Teixiera will make 2013-16 ($100M vs. Teixiera’s $90M for 2013-16) and what A-Rod would make 2013-16 or 2014-17 ($100M vs. A-Rod’s $94M for 2013-16, or $86M for 2014-17.)

    If that’s not enough for Cano, a player who has never posted 30 HR and 100 RBI in a season, won a batting title, regular season or postseason MVP Award, or significant award outside of Gold Glove and Silver Slugger (since he wasn’t the 2005 AL Rookie Of The Year), the Yanks should trade him to get something out of him. Gold Glove and Sliver Slugger awards are nice butit’s about time he posts a 2012 Miguel Cabrera-type season (Triple Crown or no Triple Crown.) He has the talent to have that breakout year but it hasn’t come yet after seven tries after his 2005 AL Rookie Of The Year runnerup performance.

    Might I remind all you “lock him up through age 38/39/40/41″ idiots that he has to have a no-trade clause in only his first year under new contract in 2014 as he becomes a ten-and-five player who could veto a trade after 2014. If the Yanks lock him up and he turns to 2008 crap or is closer to that than his rest of career excellence, they are literally stuck with him for another 7 to 9 years.

    Bottom line is the Yanks can’t afford another albatross contract like A-Rod or a potential one like Teixiera if he turns out a 2012-like 2013-14 (I’d even say he’s officially an albatross if he repeats or doesn’t equal his 2012 in 2013.)

    The mulberry tree, or Morus, is a subtropical tree native to America, Asia, Africa and Europe. The tree was widely sought after in Asia because it fed the silkworms. The mulberry is a dioecious species, which means there is a male tree and a female tree. The fruit is sweet and fleshy and sought after by animals, humans and birds but it stains and is messy. If you want a landscape tree, choose the male specimen for it is cleaner and does not fruit. There are three main species of mulberry tree that produce edible fruit: red, white and black, with black and red having the strongest flavors. The trees are deciduous and on average can grow up to 40 feet. Mulberry trees like rich, well drained soil, require full sun and should be planted about 15 feet apart. Knowing what to look for will help you determine the sex of your mulberry tree.

    Other than “training” the server at the beginning of the meal he was excellent. The busser were a bit aggressive, more interested in removing the dishes than being a part of the flow and constantly interrupted the conversation. The other nit was they did not deliver new glasses when we ordered and the staff poured the bottled water on top of the tap water in our glasses.?North Korea can’t hit Hawaii
