07:26 AM ET 12.03 | Invoking the past tense, Brian Cashman didn't sound like a GM who expected to see his best player back. Speaking Monday night about free agent second baseman Robinson Cano returning to The Bronx, Cashman didn't paint a positive picture. "I don't know, I can't predict," Cashman said before speaking about civility in baseball at the Ferguson Library in Stamford, Conn. "We sincerely wanted to have him and would like to have him. But he is in a position where he will have opportunities and choices." One opportunity, and possibly the only one, is with the Yankees, but the sides are far apart. ... Cashman admitted he doesn't know what the 31-year-old Cano is going to do. "It could be for more money, it could be for less money and that's true for any free agent," Cashman said. "They can control their destiny."

At some point the Yankees are going to make deals and spend their money. Don't wait too long, Robbie! How much money do you need?

Are the Tigers trying to put themselves in position to make a run at Cano? That Fister trade doesn't make a lot of sense.

I sure don't understand trading affordable quality starting pitching for what they got in return.

Adios, amigo! It's about time they start signing/re-signing players who want to be in NY for reasons other than the big contract. He can go play with the Nats, fine with me, but if he wants another ring and enjoys his life in NY, he needs to get it together and sign soon. Sounds like Robbie has 99 problems and his agent IS one.

It does appear to be a headscratcher of a trade.

Who cares? Let him go. the yanks have so many needs beyond cano. Pitching being a big one. Heck even Cano could sav the pitiful yankee offense by himself last year, so why break the bank for him? Spread it out, develop the prospects in the farm system, get rid of ARod. The Yanks know this, no one player is worth the mega-deal anymore. Because as soon as they get the cash, the production declines. Always.

Gonna miss ol' Robby Cano.

didn't they just get kinsler?

yup. no Cano for them.

pessimistic,and how do you mean?the truth is,,,,,Cano expected more than just simple sweet talk by the yanks towards him though!!!

QUOTE(#4):

Hopefully cash stands strong.And what he's said is all true.If cano feels he will be happier elsewhere....enjoy

the players control their destiny,and Cano would like to get pay for what he has done in the past as a player in the bronx,,except no team will pay him for old stats!!!!

QUOTE(#17):

Yankees win the negotiation, even if they lose Cano, by not giving in to his ridiculous demands.Frees up lots of money for younger prospects.
