In a possible reversal of a club policy that shies away from contract extensions before deals are complete, Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said on Friday that the team has opened the topic with second baseman Robinson Cano.
“There’s been a conversation or two,” Steinbrenner told reporters in Tampa, Fla. “We’ll get into that, and we’ll talk about that at a later date. He’s been a great Yankee, and we hope he’s here his entire career.”
I find it hard to believe that they are actually going to get him to sign an extension, but it is good to know that they’re at least open to the idea.
