Mets, Mariners making significant progress on Robinson Cano trade

Robinson Cano

After days of rumblings and speculation, talks between the Mariners and Mets reached a crescendo Thursday night on a blockbuster trade that would bring Robinson Cano and stud closer Edwin Diaz to Citi Field, allowing new general manager Brodie Van Wagenen to potentially strengthen his lineup and bullpen in one swoop. The 24-year-old right-hander recorded an MLB-high 57 saves, along with a 1.96 ERA and 0.79 WHIP. The Mets are prepared to send Jay Bruce and Anthony Swarzak to the Mariners and possibly multiple prospects: Former Mets first-round draft picks Jarred Kelenic and Justin Dunn have been discussed, as well as last season's rookie sensation, Jeff McNeil. Other reporters are saying there is no deal in place yet and that it's not to the point where anyone has asked Cano to waive his no-trade clause, but everyone agrees the sides are working on a deal. He notes the Mariners have not yet approached Cano about waiving his no-trade clause and all players in the deal would have to undergo medicals.

The 36-year-old Cano served an 80-game suspension last season after violating baseball's drug policy.

While the deal will cost the Mets prospects, never an easy to pill swallow, the money they will be taking on by bringing Canó back to the city where he starred from 2005 to 2013 as a Yankee should not be a deterrent in finalizing the trade, according to Yahoo Sports.

Moe will not cut oil production despite pleas from Alberta's opposition leader
The cuts will affect about 25 larger bitumen and conventional producers in Alberta. "We must act immediately". There will be a 10,000-barrel-per-day exemption to ensure small producers are not hurt disproportionately.

What's more, Diaz is under team control in 2019 and then is arbitration eligible through 2022. The eight-time All-Star batted.303 with 10 home runs, 50 RBIs and an.845 OPS. This deal should be the first step of what will undoubtedly be a very busy winter for the Mets, who may look drastically different on Opening Day than they did for the past few years. For that matter, why do they want to trade Diaz anyway? Or do they trade him along with Cano as a way to get rid of most, if not all, of the second baseman's contract?

The main reason why the Mariners are making this move is to clear some money from Cano's albatross of a contract, and according to Andy Martino of SNY, roughly $60 million is going to Queens just to get Cano and his huge contract out the door.
