Mariners in on Cano

3:07pm: The Mariners may have topped the Yankees' offer to Cano, a source tells Anthony McCarron of the New York Daily News. That same source indicated to McCarron that the Mariners are pursuing Cano "guns-a-blazing," and making the pitch to Cano that he can either be a Yankee legend or be a baseball legend by helping the Mariners win their first World Series.

Mariners went hard after Hamilton and unfortunately he picked the Angels, not even giving the M's offer a second thought. I don't think Cano will be putting much thought going to that pitchers park where no wall is easily reachable.

 

Seattle was #6 out of all MLB teams at hitting HRs at home. People exaggerate how "hard" it is to hit HRs at Safeco. Angels were 18th at hitting HRs at home (yeah yeah Marine layer) ... but why would HR hitters go to Anaheim?

 

Seattle was #2 in all of MLB in HRs.

 

God knows it didn't really help them win many more games though.

 

Also its not too tough to hit HRs out to RF ... and Cano is a Lefty.

Didn't the Mariners alter the dimensions of Safeco Field to make it more hitter friendly last year?   Prior to that -- it was a very difficult park to hit HRs in as is evident by a hitters park index of 87 in 2012 and then 97 in 2013.

 

Unfortunately for the Mariners -- the opposition hit better there as well..   The pitchers index went from 88 to 98.
