Girardi: I spoke to Robbie about hustling

HOUSTON -- During Joe Girardi's state of the Yankees address, he said during the season he spoke with Robinson Cano about hustling to first.

"I've talked to him about it," Girardi said. "He has played every day. He has been kind of nicked up. I've talked to him about it."

When asked to go into further details, Girardi declined comment. Girardi, if he remains the team's manager, said that he will talk to Cano about his free-agent choice.

"Would I give him any advice? He has to do what is best for him, that's bottom line," Girardi said. "You know that you are adored here. You know you have been a great player here. You have seen the way that Mo and Andy went out, but it is a decision that you have to make that is best for you."
