Seattle Mariners rumors: Robinson Cano signing a real possibility for Seattle?

See also

Seattle Mariners rumors about a Robinson Cano signing have increased in quantity. If the Mariners signed Cano away from the New York Yankees, fans in the Pacific Northwest might be celebrating in the streets. It's been a while since the team landed a big-name free agent, adding to the excitement of the pursuit. A report from Wednesday (Dec. 4) states that the team and the All-Star second baseman have already sat down for a meeting.

Team To Sign Major Free Agent Pitcher?

A source close to the negotiations has stated that "the meeting went very well." That's interesting news, especially because it could indicate that the front office is willing to spend some money to bring a big-time hitter to the team. It would likely be a very expensive acquisition, with the recent contract demands from Cano suggested to be around $250-260 million over nine years. After the Yankees signed free agents Brian McCann and Jacoby Ellsbury to huge deals, maybe the team doesn't have the resources left to retain their best infielder.

These are certainly intriguing Seattle Mariners rumors, even if they don't necessarily indicate that Robinson Cano is ready to sign a deal with them just yet. It does show that the team is making an effort or that they are at least trying to show fans that an effort is being made. The biggest question in all of this is whether a player of this caliber would be willing to go to a rebuilding franchise rather than sign with a yearly contender for less money. A signing like this could certainly change the culture in Seattle, though, creating a situation where more players might head there through free agency.
