Robinson Cano To The Mariners: B&C Bite-Sized Reactions

News broke earlier today that free-agent second baseman Robinson Cano, regarded as the best player available this off-season, had agreed to a 10 year/$240 million dollar contract with the Seattle Mariners. Members of the Bugs & Cranks crew weighed in with their immediate reactions to the deal:

Landon Evanson:¬†¬†I mean, hey, Cano is the best 2B in Mariner’s history, but who gives a crap? It’s not like Wilson, Olerud, Vizquel, Buhner, Jr., Ichiro and Unit will all be around in their primes next season. Unless the AL West is gonna play out its schedule in an Iowa cornfield, crippling may be the word of the day.

David Chalk: What’s that old saying — one good pitcher and one good second baseman win championships?¬†I’d also be willing to bet the Angels get more value out of Pujols than the Mariners get out of Cano.

Scott Kelly:¬†Well, there has been a lot of talk here in Cincinnati about the possible trading Brandon Phillips. If there is any truth to the rumors, this signing makes it one step closer to becoming a reality. The Yankees have already contacted the Reds front office and have expressed interest in Brandon Phillips. Also, how does a 31 year old ball player get a 10 yr. deal? That’s pure insanity.¬†I wouldn’t have signed Babe Ruth to 10 years.

Andy Smith:¬†Maybe convincing your division rivals to spend huge money on players that don’t come close to making them a contender is Billy Beane’s new Moneyball.

Patrick Smith:¬†Aren’t the M’s owned by Nintendo? Maybe they’re paying Cano in Super Mario coins.

Elisabeth Galina:¬†Jay-Z invited Cano over for tea. Blue Ivy was running around as toddlers are known to do. Jay-Z picked up his daughter and put her on his lap to keep her still while he discussed business with his client. On the table was a list of MLB teams with corresponding photographs. Ivy reached over and grabbed the picture. “Let daddy work, honey,” Jay-Z cooed into her ear. But Ivy, the adorable youngster, was entranced by the photo. She kept pointing to the Mariners logo over and over again. “She’s cute,” Cano said while sipping his cup of Earl Grey, the wheels in his head turning into dollar signs.

Oh, and Scott Fendley has more than a bite-sized reaction to the signing.
