The Yankees have offers out on other free agents. This offseason is way too important for them to sit and wait. No traction w/ Cano.We've heard once or twice already this week that the Yankees weren't letting the lack of activity on the Robinson Cano contract front slow them up on the rest of their offseason plans. We saw that play out in textbook form yesterday with the signing of Brian McCann and now with this latest report from Buster Olney we're seeing that they're sticking to their guns. While the Cano talks continue to go nowhere, the Yanks are staying active on other fronts and that's exactly what they should be doing.

No word on what other players have received offers from the Yankees. Jhonny Peralta signed with the St. Louis Cardinals earlier today so I assume he wasn't a part of that group, but I'd bet Carlos Beltran, Shin-Soo Choo, and maybe Stephen Drew all got offers. The message seems to be pretty clear to Cano and his team; "we're moving forward with or without you." Let's see how all this other activity and next week's reported sitdown between Cano and the Yankees serves to speed things up.
