11:16 AM ET 11.16 | So far, free agency hasn't brought anything resembling a bidding war for Robinson Cano, and the apparent lack of suitors can't be the scenario the Yankee second baseman was hoping for. Yet on Friday a person close to him insisted that Cano is unfazed by the slow start and has been preparing all along for the possibility that it will take months for the process to play out and get him the mega-deal he wants with the Yankees or some other team. "He's ready for this to go past Christmas, into January if necessary," the person said. "He's been told all along that it could take time for a market to develop for him, and he's fine with that." If that's true, don't expect Cano to panic and sign what he would consider a below-market contract with the Yankees just because no team has come forward yet to show interest in paying him the $200 million-$300 million he wants in a deal of seven or more years. "He wants his money, that's the bottom line," the person close to the situation said. "He wants to be a Yankee, but only if he gets the money he wants."
