Why the Yankees Should Trust in Refsnyder

Since the departure of Robinson Cano to the Seattle Mariners, the New York Yankees have struggled to fill the hole left at second base.

Why Jason Heyward to the Phillies Makes Sense

The offseason is the one time of year, where premier free agents can land monstrously lucrative contracts. Prime examples of these are Prince Fielder‘s $214 million signing with the Detroit Tigers back in 2011 and Robinson Cano‘s $240 million pact that was inked in 2013. Sometimes, you don’t even need to be a free agent […]

Being Thankful for Robinson Cano

While not everyone seems to be thankful for Robinson Cano in a Seattle Mariners uniform, I am. Former Mariners coach, Andy Van Slyke, even went as far as blaming Cano for the firing of multiple coaches with his 2015 on-field performance including Lloyd McClendon. Rumors swirled this week about Cano not being happy in Seattle […]

Cano money, Cano problems

Since signing a monster contract prior to the 2014 season, Robinson Cano has performed relatively well in Seattle, slashing .300/.358/.450 (not a great deal lower than his career line) for the Mariners. The one thing he can’t slash, however, is team’s ballooning payroll. With the 33-year-old second baseman owed $24 million for each of the next eight […]

Is it time for a Robinson Cano/Yankees reunion? I say yes!

Two years ago around this time, the Yankees were backing up the Brinks' truck to Jacoby Ellsbury's house, while they were pleading poverty to Robinson Cano. So how has that decision worked out so far? Horrible, I say.Since the Yankees let Cano walk, something I was furious about at the time and am still peeved over, second base has been a disaster for the Yankees, most notably with...

Cano will be happy in Seattle -- if Mariners win

Just on the off-chance you missed it, erstwhile professional baseball star and coach Andy Van Slyke recently went on the radio and said some intemperate things about Yasiel Puig, Clayton Kershaw and Robinson Cano.

Robinson Cano Is the Root of the Yankees’ Problems

The offseason is a great time to reflect on the past: milestones that have been reached, records that have been broken, and moves that were and weren’t made. In this case I will reflect back to 2013, when plenty of  New York Yankees fans had what they thought to be a franchise player in Robinson […]

Why Robinson Cano to the Yankees Makes Sense

Nearly two years ago, Robinson Cano did the unthinkable. He left New York for a bigger contract. He went after the money and was rewarded with a ten-year $240MM dollar contract from the Seattle Mariners. No one blamed Cano for taking such a contract and leaving New York. It was just hard to fathom that […]

The Myth Of Loyalty In Professional Sports

In the last few days I’ve had some really interesting conversations about two of our local pro teams, the Seattle Seahawks and Mariners, and the decisions that each are facing. The common theme of these conversations was loyalty. What does loyalty mean to an organization? What does it mean to a player? And perhaps most importantly, what does it mean to a fan of the team? Most of...

Seattle Mariners Rumors: Robinson Cano is not unhappy with team

How much is Robinson Cano worth?

The Wind Up: As the Baseball World Turns

What a week for baseball. There were several trades—though none were Earth-altering. On top of that, it’s been your basic dose of ordinary minor moves like waiver claims, predictable roster cuts—well, actually, John Axford was cut—and plenty of drama. Oh, the drama. Trouble in Miami?

Ex-Mariners Coach: Robinson Cano ‘Cost People Their Jobs’ With Poor Play

The Seattle Mariners made Robinson Cano a very, very rich man. On the field, though, Cano’s play hasn’t really reflected his price tag. Sure, Cano has a 9.8 cumulative WAR over his first two seasons, which isn’t horrible. When you factor in his 10-year, $240 million contract, however, it’s only fair to wonder if he’s been worth the money. Former Mariners coach Andy Van...
