Poll: Is Robinson Cano really worth that much to the Mariners?

Reports that the Mariners might sign New York Yankees free agent Robinson Cano to a 10-year, $240 million contract raise some questions.

Is Cano, a middle infielder who hits for power and average, really worth that kind of money? Is a 31-year-old worth a 10-year deal? Could signing a big name like Cano help the Mariners attract some other pieces to surround their young talent and take the next step?

All good questions, but the most basic question is whether Cano’s worth it to the Mariners. As we try to confirm this story, take our poll or weigh in on comments on the Take 2 blog about it.
