The last time Robinson Cano was playing baseball in the Bronx, it was the last week of the 2013 season with the New York Yankees where they missed the playoffs for just the second time in the last 19 seasons. A lot has happened since then; during the offseason Cano wanted a 10 year contract from the Yankees, the Yankees wouldn’t give it to him and he ultimately signed with the Seattle Mariners who did give him the 10 years he was looking for (plus $240 Million).
Now, Robinson Cano returns to the Bronx as a member of the Seattle Mariners as they prepare for a showdown against the first place Yankees, who are coming off a series win against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
The main question pertaining to Cano is how he’ll be received by Yankees fans when he returns to the Bronx as a member of another team. Will he be cheered for his past accomplishments with the Yankees or will he be booed for being considered a “traitor” and joining forces with another team? All those answers will be answered on Tuesday, but this promises to be one interesting series–weather permitting of course. The forecast calls for rain all three days according to my weather app.
