Yanks have to sign him. All the other teams are locking up their young stars early. Only free agents that are going to be available are ones over 30 and thats not who you give ridiculous money too.

Look at the amount of money coming off the books after this season:

AJ Burnett - 17.5 mill
Mariano - 12 mill
Pettitte - 12 mill
Kuroda - 16 mill
Jeter - 15 mill (has an option for 8 mill that he will decline)
Youkilis - 12 mill
Hafner - 2 mill
Hughes - 8 mill
Joba - 3 mill
Granderson - 15 mill

wow canos retarded
not really.

Yanks are in a position where they HAVE to pay his a.ss and if its a long term deal, this will be the last contract Cano will ever sign as a baseball player. If he stays consistent, healthy and sharpens up his English, he will be the face of the team. In 1-2 years, there will be no Jeter, Mo or Pettitte and unless ARod turns back into 2007 ARod, his a.ss is finished too.

and CAA is only using Jay-Z to do the dirty work (pulling in athletes) that they can't do themselves. Must have been a hell of a sales pitch to pull Cano away from Boras considering that Boras will get you paid no matter where you sign

Its a shame many people refuse to read in between the lines
This move further confirms there was never a legit friendship/partnership between Jay & the real owners of the Nets. He was nothing more than a pawn used to get that arena built in Brooklyn

And in regards to Cano's situation

Roc Nation, an entertainment company founded by Shawn Carter, also known as Jay-Z, will announce on Tuesday that it is getting into the sports representation business through a partnership with Creative Artists Agency (CAA).

The company, which will be known as Roc Nation Sports, has signed its first client, the New York Yankees' Robinson Cano. Cano, who has left agent Scott Boras, is in the final year of a six-year, $57 million deal with the team.

"At this point in my career, I am ready to take a more active role in my endeavors on and off the field," Cano said, in a statement. "I am confident that the pairing of Roc Nation Sports and CAA Sports will be essential in helping me accomplish my short and long-term goals. I am making this important decision now so I can keep my focus on helping the Yankees succeed in 2013, while minimizing any distractions for me and my teammates."

It remains to be seen whether this alters the trajectory of Cano's talks with the Yankees, who have been trying to sign the star second baseman.

The Yankees made an offer to Cano earlier this winter, in dealing with Boras, but hadn't gained any traction in their talks, and when Boras clients get this close to free agency, they typically play out their contracts and test the market.

It's not as if the team negotiating for Cano is inexperienced, like the much hyped partnership between Ricky Williams and rapper Master P's No Limit Sports, which resulted in one of the worst contracts in history. Cano will be represented by CAA Sports baseball group, which says it has negotiated $1.1 billion worth of deals, including four contracts that exceeded $100 million, in the last two years alone.

Sources say Jay-Z himself is planning to be a certified agent, first in baseball and eventually in basketball and football. In order to represent clients in basketball, he would have to give up his small share of the Brooklyn Nets.

Jay-Z has always had a love for sports, but his passion grew through the Nets ownership and his 40/40 high-end sports bar in New York, which over the last nine years has become a hang out for athletes.

The initial launch is with CAA, but Roc Nation Sports will be its own company. Roc Nation currently represents Rihanna, Shakira and Timbaland, among others.

and that's the way...
