Tell Cano to take a walk if he wants more than 5 years.
Cano should already have a long term deal by now, but as in the case with Jeter after 99, the Yankees have this stupid policy that they dont break and wait until they get to the players FA status before they even attempt to negotiate with them. That is fine if you dont have a budget to stick with, but as soon as the Yankees went into "budget mode", they should have broken that policy with Cano.
Now, if they keep him, they will once again overpay by a significant amount because there is always that one team/GM out there willing to pay, and if they don't keep him, well they just lost their premiere player who is in the middle of his prime.
