David Ortiz Says Robinson Cano Signing with Mariners is 'Great News for Us'

Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz told radio station WEEI in Boston that the Seattle Mariners signing Robinson Cano to a 10-year, $240 million contract is "great news for us" considering how Cano has hurt the Red Sox in the past.

Boston Red Sox designated hitter David "Big Papi" Ortiz told WEEI Radio in Boston on Dec. 7 that the Seattle Mariners signing second baseman Robinson Cano "is great news for us."

Ortiz said in the Bradford Files podcast of the radio station he's surprised the Red Sox's rivals, the New York Yankees, would let Cano walk off and accept another offer.

"That's what the players are getting -- young, talented players with the skills that he has, that's what they're getting. I couldn't believe the Yankees let that walk away. He's the face, as long as he played for the Yankees, he was the face of that ballclub.

"He was backing up everybody. Once I saw them not getting close to what he wants and signing (catcher Brian McCann) and (Jacoby Ellsbury), I definitely knew that he was going to go somewhere else.

"That's great news for us. That's great news. This guy hurt us. He is the guy that, you're never going to forget about him because he puts up some monster numbers. He puts up some monster numbers. Now let's see how everything goes with him on the West Coast."

Ortiz's comments come a day after the Yankees' star second baseman agreed to a 10-year, $240 million deal complete with a full no-trade clause with the Mariners. Cano's contract is the third-biggest ever in Major League Baseball history, tying him with Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols, who signed with Arte Moreno's franchise in 2011. 

Cano's now-former teammate, third baseman Alex Rodriguez, signed a lucrative 10-year, $275 million contract extension with the Yankees in late 2007. 

With Cano's new deal all but official, Ortiz labels it as "well-deserved," per WEEI

"Well-deserved. Well-deserved. I'm telling you, I knew he was going to get something around that because he's one of the best players in the game right now and that's where the best players are at. 

"The way he makes the game look, it's ridiculous. It's just impossible. He makes the game look so easy...Now, we're not going to be able to see him that much, thank God. He's going to the West Coast. Wishing him the best. He's a good friend of mine, and like I said, well-deserved." 

The ESPN report also mentions Cano is scheduled to undergo his physical with the Mariners on Monday.

Brian Cashman on the Hot Seat If Yankees Miss Playoffs

Aug 30 2014 4:13am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The New York Yankees are not a team accustomed to missing the playoffs, and especially not missing them in consecutive seasons. The last time that happened was 1994 at the end of a 13-year drought that led to Buck Showalter being fired as manager. The Yankees are in danger this season of missing the postseason for the second straight year, and it is entirely likely heads will roll again. The first candidate on t ...

Whatever You Do, Don't Touch Adrian Beltre's Head!

Why are we here? Is man the product of chance or creation? Where do we go after we shuffle off this mortal coil? These are all important questions, but today our aim is to discuss a greater quandary in the pantheon of intellectual discourse: Why does Adrian Beltre freak out when you touch his head?  For the uninitiated, over the last 15 years and longer, Beltre has exhibited a deeply entrenched fear of people touching his head.

Did Seattle Mariners Make Right Move Extending Jack Zduriencik?

Aug 28 2014 4:07pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Seattle Mariners announced a multiyear extension for general manager Jack Zduriencik on Wednesday, according to Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle and other media reports. Zduriencik’s first year at the helm in 2009 led to a 85-77 campaign, but Seattle lost at least 87 games for each of the next four years before fielding a contending squad in 2014. After another dismal campaign in 2013, Zduriencik was firmly on the hot seat, but the Mariners gave him another shot with a one-y ...

Major League Baseball players trying to mess with Adrian Beltre's head never gets old. It's no secret that the Texas Rangers third baseman doesn't like people touching his head. Everyone knows that fact, so some players—teammates and opponents—will try to do it just to mess with him. Last year, Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus paid the consequences for touching his teammate's head during a game. Detroit Tigers star Miguel C ...
