Seattle got its man. Robinson Cano and the Mariners have agreed to a 10-year, $240 million contract, according to ESPNDeportes.com’s Enrique Rojas. The deal reportedly is pending a physical, which Cano will take in Seattle on Monday. Reports surfaced Friday morning stating that the Mariners and Cano had broke off talks after the second baseman’s representatives demanded a 10th year. However, those reports were clearly overblown, and Cano is actually getting his 10th year to head out west. Cano might not be receiving the $310 million that he reportedly wanted at the beginning of the offseason, but $240 million is a lot of dough. The Mariners desperately wanted to make a splash this offseason, and this obviously qualifies as such. Cano, who has finished in the top six in American League MVP voting each of the last four seasons, has spent his entire nine-year career with the Yankees to this point. Money talks, though, and the Bronx Bombers simply weren’t willing to cross into the $200 million range. #Mariners and Cano agree. $240 million/10 years.
