Whoa. I never thought Cano would actually leave, as his talks with the Mariners had "drive up the market" written all over it. But at 10 years and $240 million, he just obviously couldn't say no to an offer that beat the Yankees' best offer by around $70 million.

On the bright side for the Yankees, now they'll be able to get under the luxury tax limit!

Suddenly, those Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton contracts don't look so bad anymore.

I think Cano has enough left in the tank to be an all star for the vast majority of the length of this contract. Now that he's a former Yankee, I wonder how long before his steroid/PED past comes out.

As a Yankee fan, I am torn on getting rid of Cano is good or not. He is amazing and they need his bat. However, they can't keep spending Scrooge McDuck money on players especially with the albatross of A-Rod under their necks. I am thinking they will go hard at another infield and some pitching. That payday is ridiculous, but there is no playoff hopes in Seattle for at least a good five years.

Cano claims he was disrespected by the Yankees.

Weeks after Canseco's book release, it's looking like Rafi Palmeiro's ready to fight back. If this does goes through, one must wonder who else may be beating the lawsuit drums?
