Robinson Cano’s days with the Seattle Mariners appear to be over.  The team is putting together a trade with the New York Mets to dump the $120 million remaining on his contract.

In order to get rid of Cano they had to sweeten the deal with closer Edwin Diaz, who saved a league high 57 games last season.  In return the Mets are sending Jay Bruce and Anthony Swarzak to Seattle along with two to three prospects.

The deal has heated up in the last couple of days and is expected to be completed on Friday.

Was it worth it to the Mariners to hand Cano his ridiculous 10-year $240 million contract?  It doesn’t look like they’re happy with the return on investment.
