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.

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.
