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.

Cano hit his 13th homer in the first inning and Morrison added his eighth in the fifth inning, both off Jason Hammel (10-11). Morales ...

Joe Girardi Should Not Be Unfair Casualty of Yankees' Disappointing Season

Sep 11 2014 11:37pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

When a man is tasked with driving someone else’s car across the country with four slow leaks in its tires, it is not that man’s fault when the car flattens halfway through the journey. Joe Girardi is in a similar situation. The New York Yankees are technically still breathing, and that alone shows the kind of job Girardi has done with this club, crippled by injuries, aging players and unrealistic expect ...
