    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…

  2. 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…

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

    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…

  4. 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,…

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

    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…

    Mariano Rivera, Robinson Cano

    As of this morning the New York Daily News was reporting that the Mariners were no longer negotiating with Robinson Cano because of Jay Z’s attempts to raise the second baseman’s price tag at the last minute. As of right now–and for the next 10 seasons–Cano is a Seattle Mariner. Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes…

    For all the drama being reported this morning about Robinson Cano‘s talks with the Mariners falling apart over Jay Z’s negotiating tactics–and multiple well-respected reporters more or less confirming the story–Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com now says the talks are “still alive.” Who knows what exactly that means at this point, but if nothing else the…

  8. Report: Mariners break off talks with Robinson Cano after Jay Z “overplayed his hand”

    Just when it looked like Robinson Cano was ready to say goodbye to the Yankees and sign a massive long-term contract with the Mariners talks have broken down and Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports that “Cano’s chances of landing in Seattle have apparently ended on a sour note.” According to Feinsand…

    Last we heard, free agent second baseman Robinson Cano was reportedly on a private plane to Seattle to meet with the Mariners, who are prepared to offer him $225 million over the course of a nine-year contract. Meanwhile, the Yankees have been pretty firm about how high they are willing to go in negotiations. And as…

    Dec 5, 2013, 7:48 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Houston Astros

    UPDATE: The Mariners may not have offered $200 million to Robinson Cano yet, but it sounds like it’s going to happen before long. David Waldstein of the New York Times and CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman are both reporting that the Mariners plan to offer nine years and $225 million to Cano. This is a slightly…

  11. Report: Mariners willing to offer Robinson Cano a 10-year, $240 million deal

    Dec 5, 2013, 4:21 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes reports that Robinson Cano flew to Seattle to meet with the Mariners today and they’re willing to offer him a 10-year contract worth as much as $240 million. Previous reports claim the Yankees aren’t willing to go as high as $200 million, so if Rojas’ information is correct the money…

    Robinson Cano

    As a follow-up to yesterday’s reports that the Mariners were making a serious run at Robinson Cano, now Kevin Kernan of the New York Post reports that the free agent second baseman and his agent met with the Mariners in Seattle. Kernan’s source told him “the meeting went very well.” There’s also been some recent…

  13. When will the Yankees regret the Jacoby Ellsbury contract?

    ellsbury

    These huge, later-career deals never turn out great. The best you can hope for when you sign a 30-something baseball player to a hugely expensive long-term deal is that he will have a couple of good years on the front end to boost up his value, have a nice rebound year somewhere in the middle,…

  14. Yankees close to signing Kelly Johnson to one-year deal

    Dec 4, 2013, 7:35 AM EDT

    After reportedly agreeing to terms on a seven-year, $153 million contract with Jacoby Ellsbury, the Yankees are close to securing some Robinson Cano insurance. According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Yankees are on the verge of signing Kelly Johnson to a one-year contract worth between $2.75-$3 million. Of course, the Yankees…

  15. Yankees’ Jacoby Ellsbury signing to pay big dividends… for now

    Dec 3, 2013, 9:24 PM EDT

    Jacoby Ellsbury

    The Yankees are betting big that Jacoby Ellsbury will age well in his thirties. They’re betting big that he’s not injury-prone and that his two season-ruining injuries were flukes. They’re betting big that his power will come back with Yankee Stadium’s short porch in right serving as such a tempting target. They’re betting big that…

  16. Yankees agree to seven-year, $153M contract with free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury

    CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman was the first to mention the possibility and now Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News has the deal confirmed. The Yankees have officially reached agreement on a seven-year contract with free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury. The total value of the deal will exceed the seven-year, $142 million pact that…

  17. Report: Mariners are “a major player” for Robinson Cano

    Robinson Cano

    In what is surely coincidental timing following reports that the Yankees won’t go to $200 million in their offer to Robinson Cano, now Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York reports that the Mariners “have emerged as a major player” for the free agent second baseman. Matthews goes on to quote his source as saying that…

  18. The Yankees have no plans to offer $200 million to Robinson Cano

    It was reported earlier today that the Yankees and Robinson Cano are “oceans apart” in contract negotiations. And just in case there was any doubt, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports hears that the Yankees aren’t willing to budge from their current position. Long baseball’s spending leviathan, the New York Yankees are adamant their stance in…

    Robinson Cano

    I’m taking the rest of the week off to take my kids to Disney World. There are downsides to this. For example, it means I have to go to Disney World, which really isn’t how I envisioned using the longest bit of vacation I’ve taken all year. But as Bernie said in “Miller’s Crossing,” well,…

  20. Robinson Cano recently asked for $250-260 million over nine years from the Yankees

    Nov 30, 2013, 9:29 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Houston Astros

    Robinson Cano says he never asked for the ten-year, $300 million-plus deal that was widely reported (and never discredited) weeks ago. According to Ken Davidoff of the New York Post, however, he did ask for $250-260 million over nine years: Cano’s most recent offer to the Yankees, in a meeting last week, was a nine-year…

  21. Robinson Cano says he never asked for $300 million

    Robinson Cano

    We’ve heard for a while that Robinson Cano hoped to land a 10-year, $310 million contract from the Yankees. It doesn’t matter much now, since it never had much of a chance of becoming a reality, but Cano told Dominican website El Dia that he never asked for the much-talked about $300 million deal. Andy…

  23. Robinson Cano’s reps met Tuesday with Yankees

    Nov 26, 2013, 7:57 PM EDT

    robinson cano getty

    Robinson Cano wants a 10-year, $310 million contract and the Yankees offered the free agent second baseman a seven-year, $160 million deal. Closing that gap is going to require a whole lot of dialogue. Which, it seems, has already begun. According to Daniel Barbarisi of the Wall Street Journal, Cano’s representatives met on Tuesday afternoon…

    Carlos Beltran has been linked to multiple teams, with the latest being the Mariners, but George King of the New York Post writes that the Yankees are the favorites to sign the 36-year-old switch-hitter. King reports that Beltran wants a three-year deal and the Yankees are pushing for a two-year deal, but “the industry buzz…
