Mariners sign Robinson Cano

For the first time in a long time, the Yankees have been outspent on a player. Robinson Cano, perhaps New York's best player over the past five years, has signed a 10-year, $240 million contract with the Seattle Mariners. It's one of the largest contracts in baseball history and is a huge statement by the Mariners, who may be looking to establish themselves as a nationally relevant team again. Cano's skills are undeniable, but 10-year contracts have a way of backfiring on the teams that make them -- just ask Angels fans how Albert Pujols' contract is looking after his second year with the team.
