NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Joe Girardi won’t be altering his musical tastes for Robinson Cano, even with Jay-Z’s new sports company now representing his All-Star second baseman.
The Yankees manager loves the Rolling Stones, not rap.
“I haven’t heard that he’s putting out an album – yet,” Girardi said Wednesday before chucking. “If he did, I won’t be the first one to buy it, I can guarantee you that.”
A day after getting rid of agent Scott Boras in favor of Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports and baseball agent Brodie Van Wagenen, Cano said he’s known Jay-Z since he was a rookie in 2005 and that he made the decision last weekend.
Cano said teammate Alex Rodriguez, Jay-Z’s pal, didn’t play a part in the switch.
