Robinson Cano has signed with the highest bidder, which is a popular move among professional athletes. It also happens to be equally unpopular among sports fans, many of who love pretending that they would be the most loyal, down-to-earth people if they ever made it to the big stage. That’s where the New York Yankees fans and their jersey burning will come in.
Earlier this week, we showed you a couple of Boston Red Sox fans who torched Jacoby Ellsbury’s jersey after the center fielder signed with the Yankees. Now, we have a Yankees fan setting a Cano shirt ablaze, with more surely to come as the week rolls on.
Like we said with Ellsbury, it’s better to have your jersey burned when you leave a team than have your own fans doing it.
