If you didn't already know, Robinson Cano is set to hit free agency after the 2013 season. Back in early December Mark Feinsand and Christian Red of The New York Daily news reported this:
"He’s not giving them a hometown discount, and they seem to be more interested in keeping their payroll down than winning," said one source while another added: “He knows he’s the best player on the Yankees ... There’s no reason for him not to be paid that way.”
The Dodgers will have a decision to make because current 2nd baseman Mark Ellis' contract will have a club option for 2014 worth $5.75 million. He will be 36 but is an above-average defender and a good vet to have in the clubhouse.
