Cano is leaving a great baseball city for a city that barely even knows they have a baseball team. Before you tell me Seattle is a great baseball town, i'm gonna tell ya. No it's really not. I realize it's Cano's life and he can do what he wants but someday it will eat at him for leaving and if it doesn't then like I said he never deserved to wear a Yankee uniform.
I'm willing to bet it won't... and that his family will agree with him.
"I have the ultimate respect for White Sox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Red Sox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country." Jim Caple, ESPN (January 12, 2011)
