    Robinson Cano and the Yankees will not discuss a potential contract extension until after the 2013 season, agent Scott Boras said on Wednesday. As usual, Boras had plenty to say.

Boras' top clients in this year's market are outfielder Michael Bourn, most recently of the Braves, starter Kyle Lohse, who has spent the past five years as a member of the Cardinals, and reliever Rafael Soriano, who closed for the Yankees in 2012. "When you look at his defensive runs saved in the last four seasons, he's in the mid-60s, and many of the players who have signed are in the minus-20s or minus-30s or zero. The Winter Meetings are almost always where the Tigers find their match.
