The Mariners and Robinson Cano have agreed to terms after several days of communication. The contract, which will give Cano $240 million over 10 years, is one of the biggest in MLB history. There are reports Seattle was under the impression that a nine year, $225 million deal would get the job done, but Cano’s agency (Jay Z himself was present) pushed for 10 years and $252 million, which would have tied A-Rod for largest MLB contract ever. At about 3am this morning right here in Seattle, they finally came to agreement to bring Cano to the M’s. Cano has to pass a physical on Monday and then the deal will be official. Great look for the town!
Lil’ Dicky dropped off a new hump day video this morning, this time for the track “Sports”. You really have to listen to the way he’s putting these sports references together in order to fully appreciate this thing. And of course, the video is hilarious and he puts some pictures in to make it slightly easier to undertand what he’s doing. Must watch! Video Below.
Looks like Givenchy is getting with the sports season and just released an all new baseball inspired sweater. This is seriously one of the most perfect sweaters we’ve ever seen. The price is pretty damn high at $935, but if it’s in your high fashion price range, go ahead and cop HERE.
Now this is one impressive catch, those cups aren’t all that wide. Dude catches a foul ball with his beer cup and then takes down the whole thing. Granted that most of it spilled on his shirt, this was still a pretty dope “bro” moment.
Justin Verlander just signed a new contract to stay with the Detroit Tigers that will give him $180 million over the next seven years. There is even an optional eighth year that would push the deal to $202 million. Verlander is now the highest paid pitcher in the MLB, surpassing Seattle’s very own Felix Hernandez who we signed for $175 million this February. Verlander tweeted, “I love this city & the fans – couldn’t be more excited to spend my career here! We’re going to bring a World Series to Detroit!!!”. $200 million can buy a lot of things, only time will tell if it will buy a World Series for Detroit.
Being located very close to Safeco Field, we can feel the excitement coming from the streets right now, King Felix Hernandez just pitched a perfect game and the fans are going crazy. This is the third perfect game this season and the 2nd ever pitched at Safeco Field. ”I don’t have any words to explain this. When Phil Hughes almost had his perfect game here I said I have to have one,” Fernandez said after the game. ”I realized in the third. I was like, wow, nobody on base.” He also added ”My whole family is in Venezuela so nobody is here so I celebrate with all of you,” pointing to the fans. Hernandez threw 113 pitches, 77 for strikes.
There are two things that are great about this picture. For one it was perfectly captured to avoid showing any private parts which makes it appropriate for this website, and two it was taken in front of the perfect sign. “Walk off a hero.”
Now usually this would never happen but this is one lucky man. First of all the first two batters hit homers one after the other and then the same fan catches both of them. The announcer is right, I’d be on a plane to Vegas ASAP.
We’ve all seen it before, the good ole’ shirtless streaker running down the field to get stopped by security. Well this time the guy was tackled by the umpire. Check it out.
The Los Angeles Dodgers thought they were screwed with all the bad financial situations they’ve been in lately, but not any more.
