I don't really know about this.. I'm really afraid he will walk to someone with more money willing to be given out. But to answer the "what kind of contract should be given to him" question is a lot tougher to answer. It all depends what the Yankees think his progression will be like over the next 5 or so years. I would like to see him get a 6 year contract 90-120 million. He is a very big asset to the Yankees and I think will progress well and better than most middle infielders. He doesn't dive a lot and doesn't steal a lot to risk injuries to deteriorate him quicker.
Cano=Yankee for life. Start a new core, like Jeter, Posada, Rivera and Pettitte!
Cano, Gardner, Nova, Robertson!
