No Hometown Discount For Cano

Nope.

Robinson Cano has said that while he's willing to sign an extension with the Yankees, there won't be any kind of "hometown discount". He feels he gave a discount to the team the last time, when he signed for what has so far been a 5 year deal for $42 million (an AAV of $8.4m). Robbie does have a point there, seeing as how he's been worth $107.5 million according to Fangraphs (an AAV of $21.5m).

Not only was he worth more in 2012 than he has in any other season of his career ($35.3m according to Fangraphs), Cano has added a Gold Glove, Silver Slugger, and a top 5 finish in MVP voting to his incredible resume.

Having a 2nd basemen with those accolades is extremely rare to come by, so I think if the Yankees are going to spend on anybody... Robinson is it.
