While the Cano deal is disgusting, I think it's a good move for Seattle, because sports in Seattle (Seahawks best team in the NFL, Sounders biggest drawers in the MLS, NBA and NHL looking at Seattle) are huge right now and the Mariners need to become relevant again. This move does that and makes them an attraction to other FAs. They're looking at other big names and are in the Matt Kemp "sweepstakes"

The guy I sit next to at my new job is a Mariners fan, and he said the team only has $36 mil spent on the team next season (I think $21m to Felix alone) before Cano. They also just got their own TV contract, and have money to burn.

As for Papelbon hitting the block...nice timing, after Detroit finally signs (overpays) a closer
