Best of luck, Robbie. Yankees already have too many mega contracts that are turning into boat anchors.

The link leads to ESPN Desportes. I enjoy a Spanish article every now and then.

[2] "... entre $230 y $240 millones de dólares por las próximas 10 temporadas." Enough said.

get ya damn hands up, and sing with Alicia:

Seattle, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothin' you can't do
Now you're in Seattle
These streets will make you feel brand new
Space needle will inspire you
Let's hear it for Seattle, Seattle, Seattle

That is mucho dinero.

(4) Love it!

Hate that Cano would go where the grass is very green for a whole lotta green, but I can't blame him.

The Yanks will get him back in 2 years when he demands to be traded to a contending team, because the Mariners suck.

My favorite post dynasty Yankee. Mother fucker.

Now I'm hearing 9 years $225 million from the Ms. Robbie should be able to afford an umbrella for that.

Wait, has he signed? I don't see any announcements..

10 RIYank   ~  Dec 5, 2013 9:17 pm

[9] No, there are just a whole lot of 'reports' of what the Mariners are offering. I've heard several quite different stories, ranging from stuff I'm sure the Yankees would match to stuff I'm sure they wouldn't.

11 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Dec 5, 2013 9:39 pm

[10] Thanks. It's a crazy morning here, my Twitter feed is swamped with images of 1. Mandela, 2. Japanese protestors, 3. Robbie Cano rumors.

Life is varied.

Robothal tweeted earlier that the 10/240 was what Cano's camp was seeking, but that the M's interest never even reached 200 (no idea about the years).

13 cult of basebaal   ~  Dec 5, 2013 9:54 pm

[12] And just like that, an update, Lord Haw Haw is reporting the offer from the M's is 9/225.

Well, if true, enjoy Seattle, Robbie, it's a wonderful city and one of the loveliest cities in America in Summer ...

14 RIYank   ~  Dec 5, 2013 10:01 pm

[13] I dunno, if it's 9/225, I bet somehow he stays with the Yankees. For one thing, there's a shitload of endorsement money that a Yankee will get and a Mariner will not get. Rob may not be an A+ endorsement prospect, but he'll get a pile.
For another thing, I think he might actually be worth that much. Okay, probably not, but I think that contract is a better deal for the Yankees than the Ellsbury contract is. Lower WAR price, I mean.

15 Chyll Will   ~  Dec 5, 2013 10:58 pm

Here's something to consider no matter where Cano signs, while also putting Ellsbury's contract into perspective. It just seems so apropos to our conversation.

16 Chyll Will   ~  Dec 5, 2013 11:07 pm

[15] Yet while what this writer says makes sense, he immediately lost me with his lame defense of Brett Boone. Go figure.

17 MSM35   ~  Dec 6, 2013 12:33 am

I wonder if the writer get a little something for Christmas if the Yanks add a few dollars. I have always believed that the reporters are in bed with the agents.

18 Chyll Will   ~  Dec 6, 2013 12:45 am

They certainly fly on the same plane, though probably not first class.

This story has baseball, hip hop, and now comedy in it. We should use it in our next mix!
