Robinson Cano apparently thinks he should be the highest-paid player in the history of Major League Baseball.
The Yankees' second baseman, who could be the most coveted free agent this offseason, is seeking a 10-year contract worth $305 million, as first reported by ESPN's Buster Olney. The desired deal is equal to Alex Rodriguez's record contract if he meets all of his incentives, per Olney.
A-Rod signed baseball's highest contract in 2007 with a $275 million, 10-year deal.
Citing an unnamed source, the New York Daily News reported that Cano's camp has already rejected two offers from the Yankees: one that was for eight years, $138 million and another that was for six years, $144 million.
"If we don't make it to the playoffs, I want to take my time, go on vacation and relax," Cano told Wallace Matthews of ESPNNewYork.com before the Yankees' loss on Wednesday night. "Then I want to sit down with my family and decide what we gonna do."
Cano is batting .315 in 2013 with 27 home runs and 106 RBI.
