Robinson Cano signs with Mariners; '99 Problems' jokes unleashed
DEC 06, 2013 12:06p ET
Earlier reports said that negotiations hit a snag because Cano's agent, Jay Z, was getting a little too greedy and asked for 10 years. The rap mogul got his way, though, and Cano will be in Seattle for the next decade.
As always with a big story like this, the fun thing to do is check Twitter for reaction. It seems a lot of people couldn't help but reference one of Jay Z's biggest hits when commenting on the Cano deal. Let's take a look.
