Yankees term Cano offer 'significant,' but Cano unmoved

The Yankees may believe their offer to star second baseman Robinson Cano is "significant,'' as they termed it today, but after receiving it Cano still seems to be thinking about baseball, not negotiations, based on agent Scott Boras' response.

"Robinson is focused on preparing for and playing the 2013 season,'' Boras said. "By agreement discussions shall remain confidential. Also by agreement, discussions will cease if they are a distraction to Robinson's performance and leadership of the 2013 Yankees.''

The Yankees may define "significant'' as a lot of money, and the offer surely was that, but it is pretty clear the sides remain far apart in discussions, with no deal in sight. General manager Brian Cashman termed the offer, made weeks ago, "significant'' in interviews today.

Star players such as Cano rarely sign with only months to go before free agency, particularly position players.

It is believed Cano is seeking a deal for 10 years in excess of $200 million. The Yankees' offer was surely a decent chunk of change (surely over $100 million), but it wasn't significant in the sense that it apparently has not moved him.
