Cano Finalizes Deal with Mariners: MLB News at YouWager
Many YouWager bettors believed they would see Robinson Cano in a New York Yankees uniform for many years to come.
However, the Seattle Mariners managed to blow him away with an offer of financial and career security that the Pinstripers never came close to matching.
According to Cano, “I was looking for a contract where I would just be able to play and focus on the game and wouldn’t wonder when I’m 37, 38 would I have a job one day. Would I be able to play?” “The one thing in Seattle is I get the chance. Am I going to keep working hard? Yes. Even harder? Yes. I’m going to do my best and play the same way I was playing in New York and go out there and do my business and win games.”
Yesterday, the 31 year-old second baseman never stopped smiling as he was introduced as the Mariners’ new All-Star. Cano had $240 million reasons to grin after signing a deal that tied for the fourth-largest in MLB history.
The Dominican Republic native has security for the next 10 years, knowing that at age 31, he likely will never need to go through the process of looking for another contract.
