Cano’s talks with Seattle reportedly fall apart

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Dec 06, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Robinson Cano; Steve Donohue

Finally off the Connecticut rooftop and back home in Westchester, and the story of the day is already coming out of Seattle.

The Daily News reported early this morning that Robinson Cano’s negotiations with Seattle fell apart last night after Jay Z asked for more money and a longer contract. According to the report, Cano flew to Seattle with an eight-year, $200-million offer in hand, and the Mariners were believed to be willing to go nine years, $225 million. When Jay Z asked for 10 years and $252 million, the Daily News report that Mariners chairman and CEO Howard Lincoln “exploded” in anger.

Have to assume that’s a figure of speech, otherwise my friend Mark Feinsand is really burying the lede.

Having just rappelled down a building in Stamford, Brian Cashman had — predictably — very little reaction to the news.

“I just keep it basically simple,” Cashman said. “Robbie’s and his agents’ job is basically to find out what his choices are. Brodie and Jay are trying to put him in a position to make an informed decision, and it takes time, so that’s the process. Our job is to inform him of what our comfort level is, and measure it against everything else. I just kind of keep it simple. … The only thing that’s really relevant is the level we’re willing to commit to and hopefully that somehow matches up with the same interest on his end. If it doesn’t, we’re not going to have a player.”

Cashman said he talked to Jay Z and Brodie Van Wagenen — Cano’s representatives — twice yesterday. He wouldn’t go into details, but Cashman said he has the sense that Cano is ready to sign right now if he gets the right offer in the right place.

“They have numbers in their mind,” Cashman said. “And if somebody’s willing to reach that, and it’s the right locale, they’ll be ready to make a decision.”

As he always says this time of year, Cashman said he’s letting the process play out while staying constantly engaged with the key figures.

“Everybody is replaceable,” Cashman said. “That’s a team concept. Some people are harder to replace than others, no doubt about it. I don’t think anybody would have the attitude that anybody is going to make or break your future, but you certainly can invest for good reason into players who can try to make your future brighter. That’s what we’re trying to do with Robbie amongst others. If it’s not to be, it’s not to be, and we’ll continue to do business as we have and try to collect as many great players as we can.”

For whatever it’s worth, Cashman said he’s “on the 1-yard line” with more than three players. Wouldn’t say who, but we already know Jacoby Ellsbury is basically a done deal, and Kelly Johnson is expected to be announced soon. Now Jon Heyman reports that a one-year deal with Hiroki Kuroda is almost done.

    Hmm…I wonder if this means the 9/225 is off the table…

  2. CountryClub December 6th, 2013 at 10:14 am

    No one excited about Kuroda ?

    ——————-

    I’m happy he’s back. Top of the line pitching on a 1 yr deal is always great. BUT they need to take better care of him this year.

  3. JobaTipsHisCap December 6th, 2013 at 10:14 am

    yankees should lower their offer now.

  4. mick December 6th, 2013 at 10:15 am

    Sounds like Costanza was at the meeting.

  5. Ys Guy December 6th, 2013 at 10:16 am

    so far cashman’s sitting pretty in the cano free agency.

    cano wants to be a yankee.

    it will get done.

  6. blake December 6th, 2013 at 10:17 am

    Cano’s demands of the Mariners were the same as they were from the Yankees…..if the Mariners were shocked then that’s their fault.

  7. trisha - true pinstriped blue December 6th, 2013 at 10:17 am

    “When Jay Z asked for 10 years and $252 million, the Daily News report that Mariners chairman and CEO Howard Lincoln “exploded” in anger.”

    I don’t blame the Mariners. Jay Z is an ahole and a greedy one at that. Robby doesn’t know any better so picked an idiot for an agent. Great combination.

  8. RhapsodyInBlue December 6th, 2013 at 10:18 am

    Looks to me like the trip to Seattle was a ploy to scare the Yankees into upping the ante at the last minute to retain Cano at higher costs and they didn’t blink.

    This morning team Cano has to be rethinking their strategy which seems to be to get the Yankees off of 7 years 25 M.

    I see last night as a retreat by Cano and his team to regroup.

  9. Yankee Trader December 6th, 2013 at 10:18 am

    Now I got all my questions answered. The last question is will any other teams front office and owner want to wine and dine Jay Z and his entourage after what they pulled on the Mariners?

    Well two questions. Who is the other mystery FA rumored to be close to signing with the Yankees, other than Kuroda?

    Expect to read later today that the Yankees and Cano reach an agreement!

  10. Against All Odds December 6th, 2013 at 10:18 am

    Jay Z is an ahole and a greedy one at that.

    —————-

    Can’t the same be said about every other free agent. Do ppl think if this was Boras he wouldn’t have thrown out ridiculous demands as well.

    wait we lost leverage with the Yankees…..call the Mariners back !

  12. MTU December 6th, 2013 at 10:19 am

    3 players on the 1 yd line not named Johnson or Ellsbury.

    Kuroda is 1.

    Who are the other 1 or 2 ?

    The plot thickens.

    Stay tuned. Details at 8.

    Do the Yankees have a another pre X-mas surprise ?

    I’m a happy, happy Man.

    Let the good times roll.

    ;)

  13. blake December 6th, 2013 at 10:19 am

    So with Kuroda the Yanks are at about 165 million…..WITHOUT any of the Arod money.

  14. Barry December 6th, 2013 at 10:20 am

    Do not believe Cano comes back to New York.

    You knew that report was going to come out sooner or later. But who is the source? because if it’s someone on Cano’s team it’s meaningless.

    I’ll say this, if Cano leaves the Yanks, I hope it is for Seattle. He’d do the least damage to the Yanks out there. Would hate to see him on Detroit or Texas…especially for the next few seasons.

  16. Wave Your Hat December 6th, 2013 at 10:20 am

    I’m going to wait for more news…this report could be just more propaganda. While the Mariners may not be willing to go to 10 years, I think the Mariners wouldn’t walk from the negotiations just because of the request.

  17. MTU December 6th, 2013 at 10:20 am

    Robinson.

    You really owe to yourself to get in on this party.

  18. Wave Your Hat December 6th, 2013 at 10:21 am

    Seattle’s ownership has the resources to put together a competitive team if they want to.

  19. trisha - true pinstriped blue December 6th, 2013 at 10:21 am

    Against, real agents know how to play the game in such a way that it is palatable, even though no deal may ever be reached. I think it’s an embarrassment that Robby is even with a rap artist for an agent. But Robby is a sweet kid who is easily led.

    If the Mariners CEO “exploded” in anger, let’s just say that Jay Z likely tried to play a hand he never had and sat there like king tut doing it.

    If I’m another team, thinking we can enter the Cano fray late – you have to question the Cano (JayZ) camp and their sincerity at this point

  21. pkyankfan69 December 6th, 2013 at 10:22 am

    Hiro on a 1 year deal puts a smile on my face… They just have to limit his innings better this year… Give him a nice phantom DL stint in the middle of the season to keep him fresh… Yanks have enough back end guys to fill in for Kuroda for 2 starts or so and not kill the team.

  22. Ys Guy December 6th, 2013 at 10:22 am

    wfan says that ken rosenthal says that the cano-mariners talks are ongoing.

  23. MTU December 6th, 2013 at 10:23 am

    No Wave but they may have been told they’d have a deal if they went 225 which they supposedly did.

    And then it was rejected.

    That wouldn’t make me too happy either.

    It’s called bad faith where I come from.

    And it is really, really frowned upon.

    ;)

  24. Wave Your Hat December 6th, 2013 at 10:24 am

    “Exploding in anger” is often just a negotiating ploy, in my experience.

  25. Yankee Trader December 6th, 2013 at 10:24 am

    After they reach an agreement, Robbie can hook up with Jay Z in Anaheim and rap their new tune
    ” I want to thank the good Lord for making me a Yankee.”

    Have a great day everyone. Hopefully things are falling in place.

    Until later.

  26. DONNYBROOK December 6th, 2013 at 10:24 am

    If Cano is still physically in Seattle, then there is some substance to the talks being “alive”. Otherwise, NOPE

  27. RhapsodyInBlue December 6th, 2013 at 10:24 am

    If Cano doesn’t come back I’ll sleep like a baby.

    This is a double edged sword, I love Robbie but someone please show me how many of these recent long contracts to older ballplayers have worked out successfully.

    Look at the older players on the Yankees, Tex, CC, Jeter and even the great one Mariano injured himself doing what he has done his entire shagging balls in the outfield. Older players are a risk no two ways about it.

    The money can then be spent the next 7 years to buy other quality players to fill the out the roster.

  28. Wave Your Hat December 6th, 2013 at 10:25 am

  29. trisha - true pinstriped blue December 6th, 2013 at 10:25 am

    And again, they can ask for what they want, but we’re not talking Miguel Cabrera here. We’re talking a kid who’s known not to bust it down the line and who sometimes takes a little too long admiring his long shot. But 10 years from now he’ll just be tearing up the field and making it worth every dime.

    Who gives out those kinds of contracts? Idiots, that’s who! The aging process will affect everyone but Robby? Come on now.

    If Cano wants to go to Seattle let him.

    We have other irons in the fire.

    We are on the 1 yd line with 3 other players.

    Can’t wait to open the packages.

    Hope they’re good presents.

    Kuroda sure is.

    I’m forgetting about Cano for now.

    Call me when he’s made his decision.

  33. Against All Odds December 6th, 2013 at 10:26 am

    What does him being a rap artist have to do with anything leave rap out of it.

    Are ppl forgetting the Tex Red Sox negotiations when Boras told them we have other offers and the Red Sox walked away from the Table.

  34. Wave Your Hat December 6th, 2013 at 10:26 am

    Organizations with enormous amounts of money.

    well chances are he’s still in Seattle….just logistically…..he didn’t get there until late last night and it’s what 7.30 in the morning there.

    Geeze, I’m with you here.

    I also detest greed, so this is starting to sicken me on a totally different level.

  37. BIG AL December 6th, 2013 at 10:27 am

    Robbie will soon realize, if he has not done so already, that leaving Boras was a huge mistake that could cost him $$$$.

    When an owner and GM believe they have a deal in place, and the agent does what Jay-Z did, both the agent and player lose credibility, IMO.

    I suspect other teams that might have had any interest in Cano are quickly backing away.

    Now is the time to make a slightly bigger, final offer, and let Robbie know this is it!

  38. blake December 6th, 2013 at 10:27 am

    If you’re the Mariners and you’re willing to go to 9/225 to get a star hitter to come then really what’s another year? It’s gonna be terrible at the end either way

    my guess is that cano flew back to LA with Jay-Z, who’s perfoming in anaheim of los angeles tonight.

    but when you have private jets sitting around waiting for you, you can get back to seattle or fairbanks pretty quickly.

  43. Jerkface December 6th, 2013 at 10:29 am

    You guys realize that jay z is not Cano’s agent, right? The comments regarding Jay Z here are pretty loathsome.

  44. trisha - true pinstriped blue December 6th, 2013 at 10:29 am

    “Organizations with enormous amounts of money.”

    Then they’re idiots too. Merloni hit it right on the head yesterday. The importance in contracts these days is NOT in terms of the dollars, it’s in terms of the length of the contract. He said no player in his 30s should be given a contract over 5 years. 6 at the most. He’s absolutely right.

    But the overwrought fans and desperate owners don’t operate on a plane of sanity.

  45. MTU December 6th, 2013 at 10:30 am

    That would just make a dumb offer that much dumber.

    I think it’s an embarrassment that Robby is even with a rap artist for an agent. But Robby is a sweet kid who is easily led.

    ———————–

    Can you please stop talking about Robbie like this? He’s an adult and you have no idea what his motivations are. Assuming he’s some idiot just following the leader is insulting and presumptuous. What gives you that impression? Because he smiles a lot??? Cano is going to get paid, which is what he hired his agents for. Shouldn’t people be THANKING HIM for dropping Boras, and not insulting him?

    And in terms of years – since you seem to continue to focus on comments that don’t exist – the idea is you front load a contract. If you give him 10 years, for example and make sure he’s only paid $5 million in each of the last two, it creates a really easy out for the team. They can buy out the last two years of the deal, in this example, using just $10 million real dollars. They do still need to deal with the AAV, but they have literally a decade to plan for that. Long term deals, if structured in a way that makes sense (see: not the back loaded Pujols or Hamilton deals) it can help the team now (lower AAV) and later (easy buy out).

    “If you’re the Mariners and you’re willing to go to 9/225 to get a star hitter to come then really what’s another year? It’s gonna be terrible at the end either way”

    Well, adding year 8 might have been very painful for them, and adding year 9 excruciating…

    It has to stop somewhere, I guess.

  48. blake December 6th, 2013 at 10:30 am

    Jay Z is one of Cano’s agent…..he’s probably not the one doing the true negotiating I wouldn’t think. He’s trying to get his client the most money and where he wants to be…..kinda the same as every other agent. Boras would be doing the same thing…..only probably better.

  49. Jerkface December 6th, 2013 at 10:31 am

    Boras would have declined Seattle’s deal as well. He has already leaked this offseason that its a ‘dubious organization’ and though he does use the 1 dumb owner theory, he still tries to get his player the most money where ever the player wants to go.

  50. CountryClub December 6th, 2013 at 10:31 am

    I don’t think things would be going any better if Boras was still his agent. Boras would be asking 10/250 too. And he certainly wouldn’t drop his demands until after the winter meetings.

    I guess….but it boils down to do you want the player or not…..10 would certainly get it done I’d think…..do you want him or not Mariners……Cano hasn’t demanded anything of you that he hasn’t demanded of the Yankees.

  54. Chip December 6th, 2013 at 10:32 am

    3 things:

    1. You don’t lower your offer to Cano. He’s a proud guy and taking advantage of him his situation is just a crappy thing to do to a good guy. You offer him 7 years at $25/year that can vest into 9 and $225.

    2. As Hal said, you just hope he gives the Yankees a last opportunity to match any offer he’s considering signing – though if he doesn’t that’s fine too.

    3. Talks aren’t dead until he signs a contract with another team. Were the Mariners ticked? I’m sure they were, they thought they had this thing wrapped up last night. Tensions run high, people step back, calm down and sit back down and see where things are at. If 9 and $225 is still on the table then I’m sure they can work something out.

  55. trisha - true pinstriped blue December 6th, 2013 at 10:32 am

    You do realize that Jay-Z IS Cano’s agent, even if he employs others to do the daily grunt work, he’s still in charge. If not, please explain how Jay-Z was at the meeting making salary demands.

    “But the overwrought fans and desperate owners don’t operate on a plane of sanity.”

    I can’t speak for the fans, but many owners these days have staggeringly obscene amounts of money. For them, $225M is basically a flea on the tail of a dog. How much they are willing to give is more a game than anything else.

    That’s the kind of world we live in now, sad to say, and it’s the kind of world the Yanks say they want to compete in with the “goal” of staying under the cap.

    Ain’t gonna happen.

  68. Shame Spencer December 6th, 2013 at 10:34 am

    CAA also represents YANKEE STADIUM, btw.

  69. Chip December 6th, 2013 at 10:35 am

    And as Jerkface said, Jay Z is not the primary agent in this…I’m sure he’s advising Cano strongly.

  70. trisha - true pinstriped blue December 6th, 2013 at 10:35 am

    I have both eyes and ears and am not mesmerized by a player to the point that I don’t pay attention to everything about him and everything surrounding him.

    “That’s the kind of world we live in now, sad to say, and it’s the kind of world the Yanks say they want to compete in with the “goal” of staying under the cap.”

    This has nothing to do with staying under the cap. It has to do with intelligent decision making. I’m just happy that some of the people on this forum are nowhere near the negotiating table. I am praying that the Yankees have been listening to the droning of their fans, especially the ones on this forum, and are NOT going to set themselves up with ridiculous contracts that see the players tying up positions while they languish on the DL or just about hit the ball.

    If not, then they are as crazy as self-interested fans who really only care about the here and now and are willing to sacrifice the good of the team so they can sleep at night. And if the Yankees go there, they deserve everything they get, and so do those fans.

  79. Captain Clutch December 6th, 2013 at 10:39 am

    Jeter or Mariano should call Cano and talk some sense into him. He is going to regret leaving Boras. It seems like every last dollar is important to him so maybe he would play in Alaska if they offered over $200m.

    Can you explain why it is a bad thing that Robbie picked Jay’s new organization (one that is attached to the most reputable agents in the business) over Boras if the Yankees might actually benefit from that switch….??

    ——————-

    I’m happy he’s back. Top of the line pitching on a 1 yr deal is always great. BUT they need to take better care of him this year.

    Not really. Can’t get too excited about a 39-year-old pitcher who went 11-13 last year. Yes, we know he was overworked in the first half of the season. Yes, we know he’s a much better pitcher than his 2013 stats. But there has to be a chance that his second-half drop-off wasn’t all down to fatigue. Think our rotation will be OK if Pineda can be a part of it (and that’s a big if); otherwise I have concerns.

    Robinson Cano’s negotiations with Seattle fell apart last night after Jay Z asked for more money and a longer contract. According to the report, Cano flew to Seattle with an eight-year, $200-million offer in hand, and the Mariners were believed to be willing to go nine years, $225 million. When Jay Z asked for 10 years and $252 million, the Daily News report that Mariners chairman and CEO Howard Lincoln “exploded” in anger.

    It’s really tough to say without knowing their true intentions regarding the budget……but they are at 165 now without Arods money so it’s tough to see how they will stay under even if he’s suspended the whole season.

    Jay Z can just go back to Seattle and accept the offer he just turned down. If Seattle was willing to go to $220 million or more, then I think Cano will wind up there. Howard Lincoln isn’t going to change his mind about what Cano is worth to his team just because Jay Z was obnoxious. Exploding in anger is a good negotiating ploy to indicate that he won’t up his offer.

    Again, you hope he puts in a final call to Cashman – but at these numbers then I don’t mind the Yankees walking away.

    What will be interesting to me is the spin after the contract.
    If he had signed with the Yankees for this number it would have predictably been: Don’t you learn anything from the Alex Rodriguez contract? These deals never work out? How long until the Yankees regret this deal?

    Mariners doing it I think the spin will be more: This puts Seattle back on the map. It’s an overpay but he’s great.

    Why is anybody attacking Cano and/or Jay-Z? Cano is an amazing player and has been a great Yankee. Top 10 player in baseball, hard worker, never a problem on or off the field, never gets hurt, plays every single game .. really what more could you ask for? Even if he leaves now he would have had a fantastic Yankee career that you should all be thankful for. This is his big pay day, it’s a once in a lifetime shot. It should bother nobody that he is trying to get every dollar he can.

    And Jay-Z, dude grew up in a housing project and is now worth half a billion dollars. And some people are saying he’s unintelligent? Regardless of whether or not you like rap music he’s one of the great artists of our time AND he’s a fantastic business man. Yes, Boras is probably a better agent but hiring Jay-z to work for you is not exactly a bad decision given his past success.

    Patrick,

    I don’t think anyone’s attacking Cano and I think the Jay Z stuff is pure ignorance and racism.

  162. blake December 6th, 2013 at 10:55 am

    signing McCann and Ellsbury and losing Cano is dumb and counterproductive if you don’t replace Cano’s production.

  163. MTU December 6th, 2013 at 10:56 am

    OK.

    It’s time for Choo and Infante.

    ;)

  164. RadioKev December 6th, 2013 at 10:56 am

    Hate signing Ellsbury and not Cano.

    The biggest free agent on the market is panicking before the winter meetings. What a choke job by Jay-Z.

  165. blake December 6th, 2013 at 10:56 am

    “It’s funny, though, they don’t call him a ‘thug,’ ‘stupid,’ or a ‘gangsta’ very often…”

    my point…..not sure how Boras is any different than Jay Z is.,

  166. Captain Clutch December 6th, 2013 at 10:56 am

    Cashman said that he spoke to Cano’s agent 2 times yesterday and they were ready to move if they got the right deal. So obviously the Yanks knew if they didn’t up the offer he was gone.

  167. Chip December 6th, 2013 at 10:56 am

    Yes, but if you never believed you could keep Cano then signing McCann and Ellsbury is a strong proactive move to try and mitigate that loss.

  168. Captain Clutch December 6th, 2013 at 10:57 am

    So now the Mariners have Montero and Cano..The yanks are left with a broken down Pineda and ichiro…great.

    I don’t think anyone is attacking Cano on here. But a lot of us think it’s a bad move baseball wise. It could even cost him the HOF because his numbers will most likely drop quicker than they would have if he stayed in a more hitter friendly park.

    But it’s certainly his right to go after the biggest offer if that’s what’s important to him.

  172. Patrick December 6th, 2013 at 10:57 am

    I don’t think anyone’s attacking Cano and I think the Jay Z stuff is pure ignorance and racism.

    Lots of posters on here over the last week or two have been ripping Cano. Or undercutting Cano’s abilities so they feel better about losing himl.

    10 years, $240 Million. Yeah right.

  174. Ys Guy December 6th, 2013 at 10:58 am

    i have to say i still think cano is coming back, but should the yankees choose not to go to 9 years or $225M, i just can’t condemn them for that. its probably the right choice.

    i want robbie back but not at ‘any price’ and that’s getting pretty close to ‘any price’

    Patrick December 6th, 2013 at 10:54 am

    Why is anybody attacking Cano and/or Jay-Z? Cano is an amazing player and has been a great Yankee. Top 10 player in baseball, hard worker, never a problem on or off the field, never gets hurt, plays every single game .. really what more could you ask for? Even if he leaves now he would have had a fantastic Yankee career that you should all be thankful for. This is his big pay day, it’s a once in a lifetime shot. It should bother nobody that he is trying to get every dollar he can.

    And Jay-Z, dude grew up in a housing project and is now worth half a billion dollars. And some people are saying he’s unintelligent? Regardless of whether or not you like rap music he’s one of the great artists of our time AND he’s a fantastic business man. Yes, Boras is probably a better agent but hiring Jay-z to work for you is not exactly a bad decision given his past success.

    ————————

    Everyone on here is taking crazy pills or something.. it’s been all swipes at both Cano and Jay Z lol, utterly ridiculous.

    Yes, but if you never believed you could keep Cano then signing McCann and Ellsbury is a strong proactive move to try and mitigate that loss.

    Eh they have lost or will lose more than Cano. McCann/Ellsbury treads water. The goal is to be better than last years team, not match them.

  180. RadioKev December 6th, 2013 at 10:59 am

    Yankees over valued Ellsbury and under valued Cano. Perplexing.

    But the $300m thing was ridiculous, and the Cano/Jay-Z camp boxed themselves into a corner. Before the winter meetings! You can absolutely bet Boras would not have done that.

  181. Captain Clutch December 6th, 2013 at 10:59 am

    If true that is absolutely insane…

  182. trisha - true pinstriped blue December 6th, 2013 at 10:59 am

    Boras likely would have advised his client not to play in Seattle and would have tried to play the Yankees like a fiddle. He would have gotten this down to zero hour, going back and forth constantly. As much as I detested him as an agent, the guy was well schooled in how to do it.

  187. Captain Clutch December 6th, 2013 at 11:00 am

    The most I would have offered Cano was 8/$200m. The Yanks weren’t touching that…

  188. Patrick December 6th, 2013 at 11:00 am

    If this is true that Cano is leaving for 10 years 240 it really sucks. I don’t think the Yankees should match that contract but it still REALLY sucks

  189. CountryClub December 6th, 2013 at 11:00 am

    Cano got the 10/240 he wanted. Now he has to live with the consequences. I have to say it, thank goodness the Yanks didn’t give him that deal.

    The problem is we don’t know how far they would have had to go or if they would have done it. Everything we know right now says the Yankees never moved past $168 and that is a travesty if it ends up being true. They needed to go to $200, it was always going to be that way to keep him.

  191. trisha - true pinstriped blue December 6th, 2013 at 11:01 am

    “it’s been all swipes at both Cano and Jay Z lol, utterly ridiculous.”

    I haven’t seen many “swipes” at Cano, unless you call people making factual statements about his playing “swipes”. I think Jay Z is a boob as an agent. So shoot me.

    The only thing utterly ridiculous around here will be the number of years Robby gets in his contract.

  192. Bret The Hitman December 6th, 2013 at 11:01 am

    So we will have Ellsbury through age 37.

    Seattle will have Cano through age 41.

    That’s 4 years of dead money.

  193. Against All Odds December 6th, 2013 at 11:01 am

  195. austinmac December 6th, 2013 at 11:01 am

    The three on the one yard line are Ellsbury, Johnson and Kuroda. Nothing new here.

    I am sure Jay Z is very smart, but that doesn’t mean he knows baseball negotiations. That said, I bet the Mariners come up from $225 to somewhere between Cano’s last number. For that kind of money Cano will learn to love Seattle.

  196. DONNYBROOK December 6th, 2013 at 11:02 am

  201. Kelvin December 6th, 2013 at 11:03 am

    Onward and upward Yankees.

    congratulations to robbie cano, that is a mountain of money and he deserves it (based on the fact that someone offered it to him)

    great job of negotiating by canos team.

    sorry to see him go, but 10/$240 just waaaaay too much money, too many years, imo.

    good luck to robbie except against us.

    now go get granderson, the mets are out on him.

  206. austinmac December 6th, 2013 at 11:04 am

    Didn’t see the report. I said yesterday he was gone. Jay Z wants to make a bit show. He has. I never doubted Cano would do whatever he recommends.

    See ya.

    Now for the winter meetings.

  207. DONNYBROOK December 6th, 2013 at 11:04 am

    Yankees Now have roughly $20 Mill to use in restocking this team. This $$$, right before the Winter Meetings, is good. Cano beat the clock.

  209. Chip December 6th, 2013 at 11:05 am

    One thing I hope this contract makes clear:

    Signing Jacoby Ellsbury has nothing to do with losing Robinson Cano.

    If the Mariners were willing to go that high two weeks ago then it wouldn’t have mattered if the Yankees had signed Ellsbury or not. Cano wasn’t going to be a Yankee.

  210. Captain Clutch December 6th, 2013 at 11:05 am

    So the Mariners gave him $70m more than the Yankees offer…That is crazy considering they still need 4 more bats.

    The best thing is that it happened before the winter meetings and good players are still on the board. If this happened one week later the Yanks would be really screwed. Now it’s time for Cashman to get busy on the phone.

  216. Chambliss December 6th, 2013 at 11:07 am

    If Seattle gives Cano $240M for 10 years, I take back what I said about Jay-Z. That is a monster deal.

    Can Soriano still play second?

  217. PacoDooley December 6th, 2013 at 11:07 am

    Bad contract for the Mariners and a bad situation for Cano, but I would rather have Cano on a bad contract than Ellsbury on a bad contract. Personally, I think that the Ellsbury overpay is a worse mistake than the Cano overpay.

    I think that Cano will not fall apart the way Pujols did, but the deal will look bad within five years.

  218. trisha - true pinstriped blue December 6th, 2013 at 11:07 am

    “Didn’t see the report. I said yesterday he was gone. Jay Z wants to make a bit show. He has. I never doubted Cano would do whatever he recommends.

    You did austin. Once again, your judgment has been right on the money. I wonder if Jay Z now retires his NY baseball cap for a Mariners cap. And hey, will he continue to be postseason entertainment singing New York?

    Gotta love his value $$$$$$$$$$$$$ystem. After all, a man is only as good as his word, correct?

    :)

  219. yankeefeminista December 6th, 2013 at 11:07 am

  220. austinmac December 6th, 2013 at 11:07 am

    It is wrong to criticize the Yankees for this. No one is turning down $40M additional dollars. He would be gone even if they had gone to $200M, I believe.

    People, turn the page. Let’s go spend his money on 2-3 players. I don’t see Choo as one of them. Maybe Beltran, but it was said he was far down the road with another team.

  223. Doreen December 6th, 2013 at 11:08 am

    Boras is a great baseball agent, but CAA (and now with Roc Nation) is about a little bit more for the players, as I understand it. The endorsement side.

    By the way, neither Jeter nor Mariano was represented by Boras.

    I think the initial gambit of 310 was a mistake. But I really don’t understand how Boras would be handling this very much differently. I think the problem is the perception of Jay-Z as some hip hop guy. Whether you like him or not, or like his music or not, he has built a successful business and he has successfully represented other artists in the music business.

    The problem is the perception, as I was saying to Shame the other day, no matter who is doing the actual negotiating. It will be seen as flash over substance because the of industry Jay-Z has been aligned with.

    I want the Yankees to get Cano. I don’t want Cano to go to Seattle. I think it suck as I’m typing this that I can see Captain Clutch’s post that Heyman says the Mariners are close to a deal with Cano. I feel like I’ve been put through the wringer on this one.

    I hate the FA process. Always have, and always will. And I hate that they’re going to lose Robby. I bet overnight the Yankees didn’t budge enough.

  224. austinmac December 6th, 2013 at 11:10 am

    YF,

    I believe it was only avoidable if the Yankees had gone to 8-9 years and well over $200M. He will be 42 when this contract expires. That is a huge mistake by the Mariners.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  245. like it August 10th, 2014 at 11:48 am

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?

    Rob If you use a higher watt bulb ( high beam) 55watts, the bulb is less likely to burn out. Or use 2 bulbs or more. In addition, if you add a 12 volt battery and hook it up parallel to the light with respect of positive and negative, the battery would keep the voltage under control. But you have to add a switch right at the generator/ motor so if the chainsaw light is not in use the DC motor can not drain the battery. Using a battery with your chainsaw generator / motor has an advantage that you could run the chainsaw generator only part time and still have light, if the light dims down just start the chainsaw generator until the battery is charged again. Drawback using a battery with this; the battery could overcharge or heat up after a while. But if you match the wattage of the bulbs this is not a big problem. How many watts does your DC motor have? If you have only volts and amps listed you can calculate the watts. Multiply volt times the amps, that would be motor watts. Then since you use the motor as a generator you have some losses of about 60% 70%= about 65% average Now take the motorwatts and multiply by 0.65 that is about what your chainsaw generator can produce. For example if your DC motor says . volt= 24V amp or A = 5. 24 x 5 = 120 motor watts. 120 x 0.65 = 75 generator watts. Now match the light bulbs to the wattage. Or in this case about 60 65 watts. Note: A chainsaw can make up to 12,000 RPM, do not turn the generator / motor with that high RPM it could and will fly apart. Stay within the RPM of the DC motor , that is listed on the name tag.
