MLB Stars Get Paid

Robinson Cano will head to the Pacific Northwest for the next ten years.

Five of baseball’s free agents have found new homes for 2014. The Yankees bolstered their team for a big run with three premier sluggers, while a superstar heads west and one changes his residence in the big apple. New York has signed Brian McCann, Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran to bring home a World Series title. McCann signed a 5 year, 85 million dollar deal and will take the catching duties and occasionally DH. Ellsbury cashed in for 7 years, 153 million and will man center field in the Bronx for the foreseeable future. The final move was to sign Carlos Beltran for 3 years, 45 million, where he will play right field and DH. The other New York team also made a splash signing Curtis Granderson to a 4 year, 60 million deal to cover center field in a spacious Citi Field. The biggest and maybe most surprising was Robinson Cano taking his talents to the Pacific Northwest. Cano signed a 10 year, 240 million dollar contract with the Mariners to play second and bat third in Safeco Field. Cano is the best second baseman in baseball and will join Felix Hernandez in trying to make the Mariners a threat in the American League.

McCann will be the Yankees everyday catcher for the next five years.

Ellsbury joins the enemy and will man center field in Yankee Stadium.

Beltran will take his sweet left handed swing to the Bronx.

Curtis Granderson will move across the city to play the next four years in Citi Field for the Mets.
