The Mariners signed former Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano to a $240 million contract on Friday.

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.
