Robinson Cano not being shopped well

Other than Alex Rodriguez’s legal issues, has anything been handled worse this offseason than Robinson Cano’s contract negotiations?

The switch in agents from Scott Boras to Jay-Z hasn’t worked out so well. Oh, Cano will make a good amount of money before all is said and done, and he’ll end up saying he got exactly what he wanted. But not really. The $310 million figure that was thrown out there has done Cano a world of harm. This whole notion of marketing Cano hasn’t taken off. The Yankees didn’t buy it and the Mets, who also met with Jay-Z, didn’t buy it, either.
