NEW YORK -- Lost one, got one, kept one. Robinson Cano is leaving the Yankees, Carlos Beltran is coming back to New York and Hiroki Kuroda is staying in town. On a hectic day doing business in the Bronx, baseballs richest team learned Friday that Cano had decided to bolt for Seattle. So the Yankees moved quickly to bring in Beltrans bat, hours after retaining a key pitcher in Kuroda. Free-agent outfielder Curtis Granderson also left to join the Mets across town. But the Yankees hadnt shown much interest in re-signing Granderson after he turned down their $14.1 million qualifying offer last month. Cano was a different story. New York offered the free-agent second baseman $175 million over seven years. Instead, he reached an agreement with the Mariners, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Friday. ESPN reported earlier in the day that the contract was worth $240 million for 10 years. The person told the AP that the deal was pending a physical that had not yet been scheduled. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because there was no official announcement. "He was a great Yankee. He was a great player. I think everybody tried hard to get the deal done. We just never got close enough obviously," Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said. "We wish him the best. We hope he has a long, healthy career." Beltran and the Yankees agreed Friday night to a $45 million, three-year contract, two people familiar with the deal said. The All-Star outfielders agreement was detailed to the AP on condition of anonymity because it was subject to a physical and had not yet been announced. The 36-year-old Beltran is an eight-time All-Star who played for the Mets from 2005-11, when he was dealt to San Francisco. He signed a $26 million, two-year contract with St. Louis before the 2012 season and reached the World Series for the first time this year. Much earlier in the day, Steinbrenner confirmed Kuroda will return for a third season in the Bronx. "Kuroda is coming back," he said outside the teams spring training complex in Florida. Kurodas return fills one of three holes in the rotation behind CC Sabathia and Ivan Nova. The right-hander, who turns 39 in February, got off to a strong start last season before fading down the stretch. He finished 11-13 with a 3.31 ERA in 32 starts covering 201 1-3 innings. Several reports indicated the deal was for one year at about $16 million. Last month, Kuroda declined a $14.1 million qualifying offer from New York. Also on Friday, the Yankees finalized a $3 million, one-year contract with utilityman Kelly Johnson. The 31-year-old is an eight-year big league veteran and hit .235 with 16 homers and 52 RBIs in 366 at-bats this year for Tampa Bay. Johnson played third base last season for the first time in his big league career, making 12 starts, and could see time there next year. Alex Rodriguezs status is uncertain as he contests his 211-game drug suspension. Johnson has mostly played second base in his career. What a week its been for the Yankees as they overhaul their roster after missing the playoffs for only the second time in 19 years. New York introduced new catcher Brian McCann at a news conference Thursday and has a pending $153 million, seven-year agreement with outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury. When the deals for Ellsbury, Beltran and Kuroda are finalized, the Yankees will have committed about $172 million to 13 players for their 2014 luxury-tax payroll. That would leave them approximately $5 million to spend if they intend to stay under the $189 million threshold, which includes all players on the 40-man roster and $11 million to $12 million for benefits. It appears unlikely New York would remain under the threshold unless Rodriguez is suspended for most of the season, which would relieve the Yankees of much of his $25 million salary. "Were going to keep going," Steinbrenner said. "Were still looking at all the same guys that we were looking at a week ago or two ago. Were going to continue to improve. Were not done spending."

The Patriots, who had a bye in Week 10, will look to continue the offensive success they had a week earlier when New England scored 55 points and racked up 610 yards of total offense in a 55-31 drubbing of the Pittsburgh Steelers.The matchup is set for the 101st Grey Cup with no shortage of hot storylines expected to play out in the lead up to Sundays big game. But what amongst all these subplots will be the biggest factor next Sunday when the Hamilton Tiger-Cats take on the Saskatchewan Roughriders at Mosaic Stadium? The first story to formally unfold came at the final whistle of Sundays Eastern Final when Kent Austins Tiger-Cats toppled the Toronto Argonauts at the Rogers Centre. Austin - a Rider legend, having led the team to Grey Cup victories as quarterback in 1989 and head coach in 2007 - is in his first season behind the Ticats bench. He will look to deliver Hamilton its first Grey Cup of the 21st Century in front of many fans that lived and died with him under centre between 1987 and 1993. The 50-year-old Austin made headlines in his only prior visit to Regina this year, but Riders fans got the better of him after a 37-0 defeat in Week 4. His homecoming would have been storyline enough, regardless of the opposition. However, once the Riders won the Western Final, the possibility of beating their former hero became a reality as the team hopes to win just its fourth Grey Cup in 103 years. Speaking of former heroes, Austins not the only former star looking to haunt Rider Nation on Sunday. Andy Fantuz - the Most Outstanding Canadian from the 95th Grey Cup - will be wearing black and gold Sunday after having spent six seasons with the Riders. Also making their Rider returns are Hamilton quarterback Henry Burris (a Rider in 2000 and 2003-04) as well as kicker Luca CCongi (2006-11).dddddddddddd However, Saskatchewan is not likely to grant their visitors much of an advantage, boasting one of the CFLs most rabid fan-bases. Thus emerges another plot-line: Home-field advantage. Saskatchewan bested the Calgary Stampeders Sunday night and earned the right to fight for the Grey Cup on their own turf. It marks the third straight year that the host citys team has advanced to the final and in both prior instances - the B.C. Lions in 2011 and the Argonauts in 2012 - the home side has won the Grey Cup. Mosaic Stadium is regularly one of the most difficult playing environments for visiting teams, with fan support often acting as a 13th man in the defensive formation. Unfortunately for Riders fans, "The 13th Man" is another ghost that they must exorcise if they hope to earn a fourth Grey Cup in franchise history. In each of their last two Grey Cup appearances, the Riders have been no worse than tied heading into the fourth quarter, including the infamous too many men on the field penalty that helped end the 97th Grey Cup in 2009. Will they be able to close out the game in their first-ever Grey Cup home game? Or, will they suffer a record 16th Grey Cup loss? But Hamilton, too, has its demons to battle. The Ticats have not even appeared in a Grey Cup since they last captured the title in 1999 and were on the losing end of the last Grey Cup meeting between these two teams: Austins 77th Grey Cup triumph. So, what will the biggest storyline be once Sunday rolls around? As always, its Your! Call. ' ' '
