Cano to Mariners rumors are at a fever pitch. Reports of Robinson Cano going to the Seattle Mariners and signing a contract are even out there. While there has been no official confirmation of the two sides coming to terms, a new report from Thursday (Dec. 5) states that the team offered $230-240 million for his services.
The contract offer would be for 10 years, which is more than the seven years that the New York Yankees were offering at a value of $165-170 million. An offer for 10 years at a rate of $24 million per season could certainly convince him that it is worth signing in the Pacific Northwest. The question is whether he has come down from the contract demands of nine years and $260 million.
It is very clear that the situation regarding the All-Star second baseman has been heating up and that he could be officially signed before the weekend is over. It was reported that he is in Seattle to meet with the brass of the Mariners, but no confirmation has come from the organization itself. General manager Jack Zduriencik holds this type of information tight to the chest normally, so that isn't too surprising.
Expect the Cano to Mariners rumors to continue until a confirmation is made that Robinson Cano is signing with the Seattle Mariners, the New York Yankees, or a third team that surprises everyone.
