LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- There has been a lot of talk throughout the Robinson Cano negotiation and defection, but none of it has come from Cano.

That should change soon, as Cano is expected to be introduced as a Seattle Mariner on Thursday. The press conference is scheduled for 6 p.m. ET.

With his No. 24 off the board in Seattle for Ken Griffey Jr., Cano will wear No. 22, his old number with the Yankees.

Meanwhile, everyone else continues to chime in.

Baseball's all-time hits leader, Pete Rose, went on ESPN New York 98.7 FM's "The Michael Kay Show" on Wednesday and took a little shot at Cano.

"He [Jay Z] got him a big raise, but he got him an extra 30-day vacation -- and it’s called October," Rose said.

In Orlando, Scott Boras went back to his analogies in talking about the 10-year, $240 million deal that Jay Z helped negotiate.

"It's very different to be the creator of the umbrella versus those who stand under it," Boras said.
