Just when it appeared talks were breaking down, ESPN Deportes Enrique Rojas is reporting that the former New York Yankees 2B Robinson Cano and the Seattle Mariners have agreed to a 10-year, $240 contract:

Given all the criticism Jay-Z has received on his first major client, this isn’t too bad a deal.  He got the 10 years he wanted, just about $65M – $70M overall less than original asking price.  Probably the biggest surprise was that Cano will be leaving New York.  Most considered it a foregone conclusion he would re-up with the deep-pocket Pinstripes.  But with the signing of Jacoby Ellsbury earlier this week, it seemed that those deep pockets were getting shallow and the Yankees wanted to move in a different direction.

Another mild surprise was that Jay-Z and Cano didn’t hold out for more offers.  Maybe they had run dry on other interest, who knows.  But if so, then the Mariners would have had bargaining power.  Either way, the American League West gets another big bat (Prince Fielder, Josh Hamilton, Albert Pujols, and now Robinson Cano) to compete with two-time champion Oakland Athletics, who seem to do it with brains, rather than brawn.
