Something newsworthy: the Yanks and Robbie Cano are close to signing a four-year extension worth $30 million (with two team option years). It would buy out all his arbitration years and one or two years of free agency (through his age 30 season). Even if Cano never got any better, he would still be worth every penny. His career line is a robust: .314/.346/.489 through the age of only 24. He's sixth all-time among second baseman through the age of 24, and the best second baseman in the AL over the last three years (and the youngest in the top 10).

Other non-newsworthy stuff:
- The Yanks had the highest payroll (again). $218.3 million; tell me something I don't know.

- Chuck Knoblauch was subpoenaed by Congress. I really don't care anymore.

- Tom Brady wore a cast, then he didn't, then he was a no-show for the media portion of their practice. What's it all mean? My best guess is that it's a ploy by Belichick and Co. to unnerve and confuse the Giants.
