Robinson Cano's father, Jose, told ESPN New York that Cano is looking for 10-year deal and that the Yankees have only offered seven.

"We are looking for 10 years," Jose Cano said, becoming the first person from the Cano camp to publicly confirm what their side is seeking.

Meanwhile, Jose Cano was bothered by general manager Brian Cashman's comments that Robinson "loves" money. Cashman made the statement at the GM meetings, but later added that most players make a financial decision.

"I don't know why he said that," Jose Cano said. "I don't know exactly everything. Tell me, who doesn't love money?"

Jose said ultimately his first hope is for Robinson to remain a Yankee, but he said the decision was Robinson's.
