Levine: Robinson Cano is not a “re-sign at any cost” player

Indeed, the Yankees president says no player is. But the comments were aimed at the team’s best player. Via ESPN New York, here are Randy Levine’s: thoughts on the Bombers re-signing Robinson Cano:

“Hopefully he’s a Yankee,” Levine said. “Nobody is a re-sign at all costs, but we want him back and we feel good about negotiating something with him. But nobody is a re-sign at any cost.”

One does not become the president of a baseball team by saying things like “oh, man, if we don’t sign THAT guy we’re toast!” of course, so the comments make sense given the impending free agent negotiations.  I’m guessing Yankees fans, however, feel like Cano is a must-have guy.
