Van Wagenen: Roc Nation Sports' Jay Z "Intimately Involved" In Cano's Free Agency
Published November 18, 2013
ASSOCIATION MEANS LITTLE: In N.Y., Dan Martin reports of Cano, "The Yankees aren’t interested in paying him more because of his ties to the rap mogul." A source said, "The New York Yankees value Robinson as a great baseball player and appreciate his value on the field. But any value that’s added with Jay Z isn’t added to the equation." A source "pointed to the drop in attendance" at Yankee Stadium last season when Cano was "one of the team’s few healthy stars" as a reason for why the Yankees will not pay more for him despite his affiliation with Jay Z (N.Y. POST, 11/18).
JOINING THE TEAM? A source said that Univ. of South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney is "leaning toward signing with Roc Nation Sports" for representation (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 11/15).
