Cano is going to go to the hall of fame in a Yankees hat. Does he get his number retired as well?

1st game of the double header postponed. MLB needs to plan things ahead if you know its gonna be a lot of rain in the forecast schedule a double header on the 1st day of the series then you have 2 days to get 1 game in its not that complicated.

We gave him a raw deal. He would’ve signed for 8/200 from us, but we stood at 7/175. Seattle offered 10/240

Source? Hard to say he would turn down 40 million.

2B has been a dark hole ever since Cano left.

Seattle is garbage.

That article made me laugh.

Last season, the Rangers and Mariners were in a race to see who could underachieve more. The Mariners GM did something crazy. He basically re-vamped the entire pitching rotation and pen. It backfired badly because he didn't think Felix Hernandez's injury would catch up with them. It did.

At the end of the day, Cashman has an affinity towards only certain agents. He didn't like that Cano went out and signed with Jay-Z's crew. When Cano's new entourage went all in, Cashman didn't hesitate to close up shop.

It's a bitter ending to a great player in New York.

It'll be interesting to see in six seasons, Cano will be 41 and still making over $24M. I think the Mariners try to move this guy in 2 seasons. Their team is godawful.

At the end of the day, if the Yankees signed him for 8 years, they would’ve gotten at least 6 years of ROI as a top 5 2B.

Ellsbury gave you 0.
McCann gave 2 of average Catcher play when we had Gary ready the whole time.
