Remember a few hours ago when Robinson Cano’s negotiations with the Mariners were falling apart and people were exploding?
Cano has now reportedly agreed to a 10-year deal with Seattle. I believe Jon Heyman first reported that the teams were getting close to a deal, and Enrique Rojas reported the terms to be 10 years, $240 million.
That’s a massive contract, which is clearly what Cano was looking for all along. Never much indication the Yankees wanted to give that much money or that many years. Makes obvious sense to stay away from a contract like that, but now the Yankees seem to facing a world without Cano, which is a huge blow in an offseason in which they’ve been very aggressive with other free agents.
