The Robinson Cano Era is reportedly over for the New York Yankees, as the five-time All-Star agreed to a 10-year $240-million contract with the Seattle Mariners, according to ESPN.com.
Talk of the signing took MLB Network Radio by storm, as analysts and players reacted to the deal that will keep Cano in Seattle through his 40th birthday. Among them was former MLB outfielder Mike Cameron.
“Obviously with them signing Cano, they’re taking a big step,” Cameron said. “Hopefully they can go and get a couple of other guys that can help them out.”
San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Hudson also spoke about the deal.
“Good for the Mariners, and good for” Cano, Hudson said. “Their fans and that city need something they can rally around, so I think this is the start of something better for them.”
