New York Mets Quietly Trying To Take Robinson Cano From Yankees?
Yesterday, as we were all glued to the television watching a great game on Monday Night Football, Jay Z was secretly meeting with New York Mets COO Jeff Wilpon and general manager Sandy Alderson as they discuss his client Robinson Cano.
Mets do have a problem with payroll however, and may not afford the player. According to ESPN New York, the team’s 2014 payroll is expected to be about $85-90 million.
As of right now, the Yankees seem to be the only team able to afford Cano, with the market establishing slowly for the Roc Nation client.
Yesterday it was reported that Jay Z was going to be heavily involved in the negotiations for Robinson Cano’s next contract.
