Jim Duquette on Robinson Cano signing: ‘These deals rarely work out’

December 9, 2013

All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano, who signed a 10-year, $240 million deal with the Seattle Mariners last Friday, has been one of the most talked about topics in baseball this offseason. And that comes as little surprise, considering the value of Cano’s deal was tied for the third richest in the history of the game.

MLB analyst Ken Rosenthal and former MLB general managers Jim Bowden and Jim Duquette gave their thoughts on the signing on SiriusXM’s MLB Network Radio.

“These deals rarely work out, you know they’re bad the moment you sign them,” Duquette said. “I love Robinson, don’t get me wrong, I love the guy, but come on.”

Bowden, Duquette, and Rosenthal also discussed former manger Eric Wedge’s criticism of the Mariners’ front office.

The Front Office airs Sundays at 10 am ET on MLB Network Radio, Sirius channel 209 and XM channel 89.
