Brodie Van Wagenen
“We certainly have a high regard for Robinson Cano as a player,” he said. “It was my sense the presentation was a little bit overdone.”
According to Jon Heyman, the five-time All-Star is still looking for $310 million over 10 years from the Bronx Bombers, while New York is currently offering slightly more than half that.
Brodie Van Wagenen will be the man behind Robinson Cano’s new deal. But rap mogul Shawn “Jay Z” Carter is also “intimately involved in all areas” of the process, Van Wagenen said Sunday.
There’s no question that the Yankees would love to bring the five-time All-Star back, but it all comes down to how much money he will command. It could get out of hand, even for the Yankees.
The club has “had several conversations with Roc Nation Sports about Robinson Cano’s future with the team,” Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner told reporters on Thursday, according to the New York Daily News.
