Cardinals asked about Cano

Lifted from the Hot Stove blog:

The St. Louis Cardinals called the New York Yankees to inquire about
the asking price for second baseman Robinson Cano, according to a
report published Sunday in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The Yankees’
response: Adam Wainwright.

The conversation did not last long, the report noted. The Yankees have expressed a reluctance to
trade Cano despite his disappointing 2008 season, when he hit .271 with
14 home runs and 72 RBIs in the first year of a four-year, $30 million

General manager Brian Cashman is among Cano’s most
public supporters, as the organization believes he will bounce back and
return to being the above-average offensive player that prompted the
Yankees to bypass Cano’s arbitration years and offer him a bigger
contract early.
