Randy Levine Fires Back At Former Yankees 2B Robinson Cano
Published December 13, 2013
Levine added he does not begrudge Cano for taking the Mariners' deal, but added decade-long contracts such as Cano’s have typically backfired. “Ten-year deals for players over 30 haven’t worked out for us or for the industry,” Levine said. “If this was Mike Trout, I’d be recommending a 10-year contract."
Yankees Senior VP & GM Brian Cashman added, “Sometimes the business of baseball can create hard emotions. But there’s nothing personal here. He was a great Yankee, he’s a Hall of Fame-caliber guy, and we wish him the best.” As has been the Yankees’ mantra over the past year, team officials said that getting the '14 payroll under the $189M luxury tax threshold remains a goal, thought not a strict mandate. “We’ve still got a shot. As we’ve said all along, it’s a goal, but only as long as it’s consistent with a championship team,” Levine said.
