Robinson Cano is not scheduled to make his return to Yankee Stadium as a visiting player until April 29, but that didn’t stop one angry New York Yankees fan from heckling him during the Seattle Mariners’ game against the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night. The way the fan went about it will amaze you.
Believe it or not, the middle-aged Yankee supporter actually had the balls to hold a sign taunting Cano for signing with the highest bidder.
“CANO, IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY!” the sign read.
Yup, a Yankees fan. You know, the team that has one of the highest payrolls in baseball year in and year out. The team that throws $25 million a year at guys like CC Sabathia to assure that they cannot remain with the organizations that brought them into the big leagues. The team that is known as the Evil Empire largely because of it’s endless pile of wealth.
Come on, guy — you can do better than that.
