    Omar Infante

    Another potential suitor has joined the Omar Infante sweepstakes: the Cincinnati Reds. But, as Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY reports, they would need to move current second baseman Brandon Phillips first. Recently, the Yankees — sans Robinson Cano — and the Royals have had the strongest links to Infante. As for Phillips, the Reds offered…

    The Mariners just held a news conference where they introduced new second baseman Robinson Cano after he officially signed his ten-year, $240 million contract. It was your standard presser involving a star player, but Cano and GM Jack Zduriencik both raised some eyebrows with some comments. Via Todd Dybas of the Tacoma News Tribune: “I…

    New York Yankees v Houston Astros

    The Mariners just posted this Vine, showing Robinson Cano adding his signature to his ten-year, $240 million contract with recently-embattled GM Jack Zduriencik to his right and agent Jay-Z behind him. As beard aficionado Aaron Gleeman pointed out earlier, Cano is sporting a nice new beard which would have violated the Yankees’ personal grooming rules.

    Robinson Cano‘s official introductory press conference in Seattle is today and the Mariners just put out this picture of him wearing No. 22 … and sporting a beard, which was of course banned by the Yankees.

  5. Scott Boras throws some shade at Jay Z

    Dec 12, 2013, 1:10 PM EDT

    Boras sulking

    Jay Z lured Robinson Cano away from Scott Boras and then got him a $240 million contract with the Mariners, so naturally Boras took a couple shots at Beyonce’s husband yesterday: It’s very different to be the creator of the umbrella versus those who stand under it. … When you’re bringing the prettiest girl to…

  6. Report: The Mariners are still interested in Nelson Cruz

    Dec 12, 2013, 12:03 AM EDT

    Nelson Cruz

    After shocking the baseball world by agreeing to a 10-year, $240 million contract with second baseman Robinson Cano last week, the Mariners reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with Corey Hart today while picking up Logan Morrison in a trade with the Marlins. However, they aren’t done attempting to remake their offense. ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick…

  7. The Yankees turned down a Brett Gardner-for-Brandon Phillips deal

    Dec 11, 2013, 10:34 PM EDT

    Brandon Phillips AP

    UPDATE: Well, now it makes more sense. CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman was told by an NL source that before the Yankees turned down the deal, Phillips asked to the Reds re-open his contract and give him more money as an incentive to agree to a trade. Phillips has a limited no-trade clause which allows him…

  8. Report: Rangers offer seven-year deal to Shin-Soo Choo

    That seven-year offer to Shin-Soo Choo we heard about earlier? Well, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com has the scoop on where it came from: According to a source, the Rangers have a seven-year offer on the table to free agent outfielder Shin-Soo Choo and he is giving it serious consideration.

  9. Mariners sign Corey Hart to incentive-laden deal

    Dec 11, 2013, 2:45 PM EDT

    Corey Hart

    Corey Hart had an offer on the table to return to the Brewers following an injury wrecked season, but Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that he’s headed to the Mariners on a one-year deal. Hart missed all of this year, so it’s hard to guess where he’s at physically, but during the previous three seasons…

  10. David Price would not consider an extension with the Mariners if he’s traded there

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    A David Price-to-the-Mariners trade just got a lot harder: Just saw David Price’s agent, Bo McKinnis, in lobby. Asked if Price would consider extension with #Mariners. Said no.

  11. Lloyd McClendon says a couple of refreshing things about Robinson Cano

    Dec 10, 2013, 5:46 PM EDT

    Lloyd McClendon

    A lot of managers are great in press conferences. It doesn’t mean they’ll be great in the dugout. But given the P.R. week the Seattle Mariners have had, I think having Lloyd McClendon speak off-the-cuff in a funny, smart and engaging way is a good thing. Here were two of his quotes from the press…

  12. Mets, Padres, Yankees ask about Mariners’ Dustin Ackley

    Dec 10, 2013, 5:27 PM EDT

    ackley-110804.standard[1]

    With second base now off limits for a good decade or so, the Mariners have to be open to moving Dustin Ackley and/or Nick Franklin. According to CBS Sports.com’s Jon Heyman, the Mets, Padres and Yankees have already inquired about Ackley. Ackley, the second overall pick in the 2009 draft, has hit a modest .245/.315/.354…

  13. Robinson Cano would have taken $5 million less to re-sign with the Yankees

    Dec 10, 2013, 3:21 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    Yankees general manager Brian Cashman was a guest on MLB Network Radio from the winter meetings and dropped an interesting tidbit about the Robinson Cano negotiations, saying that Cano’s representatives made New York a counter-offer to re-sign for $235 million. Numerous reports throughout the offseason suggested that Cashman and the Yankees wouldn’t go beyond around…

  14. The Mariners aren’t as serious about trading for David Price as we thought

    Dec 10, 2013, 7:03 AM EDT

    David Price

    Jon Heyman reports that the Mariners believe David Price “would be theirs” if they agree to include Taijuan Walker in a trade but that, welp, they don’t want to include Walker in a trade. Or James Paxton for that matter. Rather, they’d like to build a trade for Price around position players. Presumably Dustin Ackley…

  15. Rangers, D-Backs involved as market for Shin-Soo Choo reaches “critical stage”

    Dec 9, 2013, 7:17 PM EDT

    With Robinson Cano and Jacoby Ellsbury off the board, Shin-Soo Choo is the biggest name remaining in the free agent market. And it sounds like he could find a new home during this week’s Winter Meetings in Orlando, Florida: Sources: Choo talks appear to be reaching critical stage. #Rangers, at least one other club in.—…

  16. CC Sabathia says spending career in New York “didn’t mean that much” to Robinson Cano

    Dec 8, 2013, 8:10 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Houston Astros

    CC Sabathia was among the many observers shocked to learn that second baseman Robinson Cano will be donning a Mariners uniform, rather than Yankee pinstripes, when the 2014 regular season begins. Sabathia had been Cano’s teammate for five years, ever since he signed a seven-year, $161 million contract to join the Yankees on December 11,…

  17. Mariners could part with Nick Franklin and other young talent to bolster roster

    If you thought the Mariners were going to call it an off-season after signing second baseman Robinson Cano to a ten-year, $240 million contract, think again. They’re only just getting started. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports tweets that the Mariners could use some of their young talent, such as middle infielder Nick Franklin, to bolster…

    Another thing to monitor at the Winter Meetings … According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Royals are expressing interest in free agent second baseman Omar Infante and will try to beat out the Yankees for his services. The two clubs engaged in a biding war for outfielder Carlos Beltran — which the Yanks…

  19. Mariners management called dysfunctional by former skipper and front office personnel

    Dec 8, 2013, 8:53 AM EDT

    If you read one thing today, make it this Seattle Times profile of the Mariners’ front office. Geoff Baker, the author of the piece, talked to former M’s manager Eric Wedge, former special assistant Tony Blengino and scouts who are still affiliated with the team. What he found wasn’t pretty. A taste: One of those…

  20. Brett Gardner is drawing “significant” trade interest

    Dec 7, 2013, 3:09 PM EDT

    With last night’s signing of Carlos Beltran, the Yankees officially have a surplus of outfielders. And more than a few teams are wondering if they would consider cashing in on that depth in order to upgrade in other areas. Source: Yankees receiving significant interest in Brett Gardner and willing to trade him. They're not shopping…

  21. Robinson Cano “didn’t want to play” for Joe Girardi

    Dec 7, 2013, 1:05 PM EDT

    Cano Girardi AP

    Now that second baseman Robinson Cano has reportedly accepted a 10-year, $240 million contract to leave the Yankees for the Mariners, we can open the floodgates on some anonymously-sourced bad-mouthing. We have our first such story from the Cano side of things, courtesy of George A. King III of the New York Post: “Robbie didn’t…

  22. Report: Yankees have agreed to a three-year deal with Carlos Beltran

    Dec 6, 2013, 9:50 PM EDT

    World Series - Boston Red Sox v St Louis Cardinals - Game Three

    Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News is reporting that the Yankees have signed free agent outfielder Carlos Beltran to a three-year deal. Beltran will turn 37 on April 24, so the contract will span his age 37-39 seasons. After a pair of injury-shortened seasons in 2009 and ’10, Beltran has shown lately that…

  23. Yankees reportedly in on everyone now that Robinson Cano is off the board

    Dec 6, 2013, 7:20 PM EDT

    Carlos Beltran

    Earlier today, second baseman Robinson Cano signed with the Mariners on a ten-year, $240 million contract, leaving the Yankees out in the cold with an infield that includes the embattled Alex Rodriguez, the hobbled Derek Jeter, the recovering Mark Teixeira, and the recently-signed Kelly Johnson. Now that they don’t have to set aside space for…

  24. Will the Mariners’ next big move be for David Price?

    Dec 6, 2013, 1:23 PM EDT

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    Now that the Mariners have signed Robinson Cano for $240 million there’s tons of speculation about their next big move, since the consensus is that Seattle has significant payroll space left to spend and remains aggressive on a number of trade and free agent fronts. Making a run at David Price would be another huge splash,…

  25. Robinson Cano signing only bad if the Mariners stop now

    Dec 6, 2013, 12:14 PM EDT

    cano-110316.standard[1]

    No, there’s very little chance that Robinson Cano will resemble a $24 million player in 2023. But at least he’s better than that now. In a world in which Jacoby Ellsbury is worth $22 million annually and middle-rotation starters get $10 million-$13 million per year, it’s hardly unreasonable to value Cano as a $30 million…
