Updates for Friday, Dec. 13

FOX Sports has the latest on Cano signing with Seattle:

"If it was about money, I would have asked for more. . . . Let me tell you one thing. I took less money [in Seattle]. The Yankees were offering me 25 [million annually], I took here 24."

Cano also said he wanted a contract that would take him through to his retirement.

Details of Cano's negotiations with the Yankees and the Mariners did not get much publicity, and most of the Yankees' comments about Cano have focused on the fact that they were outbid by Seattle; that New York was unwilling to go beyond seven years and jeopardize its efforts to stay within a budget. Yet Cano's biggest complaint about his former employer? The disrespect New York showed him, of course.

Now, to his credit (we think), Cano did say, "I don't want to say anything bad about the Yankees."
