NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Free agent Robinson Cano is leaving the NY Yankees for the Seattle Mariners, FOX 5 News confirms.

The All-Star second baseman and the Mariners agreed to a 10-year deal worth $240M on Friday.

The Yankees were willing to agree to a 7-year, $175M deal that was rejected by Cano's representatives, sources tell FOX 5 News.

Music mogul and sports agent Jay Z reportedly brokered the deal with the Mariners.

Last month, Yankee general manager Brian Cashman said the Bombers could be outbid for Cano:

"I feel very comfortable that we'll firmly compete for the player, but the value we put on him, the value someone else puts on him could be vastly different, and if it is we'll lose him."

Cano was initially seeking more than $300M for 10 years.

    Believe it or not this, some say New York's outdoor basketball courts are a dying entity. Even Rucker Park in Harlem -- where Dr. J and countless others honed their skills -- used to be standing room only all times of the day. Now there's plenty of room to stand on most days.Basketball programs like one at Chelsea Piers are gaining popularity. That means the place to hoop it up for many appears to be indoors.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
