BREAKING: Robinson Cano Suspended for 2021 Season
INITIAL BIG QUESTIONS –
1) I have to wonder, did Brian Cashman and/or the Yankees know (or have suspicions) about Cano and PEDs all those years ago?
2) Does this make the Mets in the D.J. LeMahieu sweepstakes?
News: Robinson Cano has tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug for the second time and will be suspended 162 games, sources tell ESPN. He will miss the entire 2021 season and forfeit $24 million in salary. Story at ESPN: https://t.co/BOA943F6CT — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) November 18, 2020
Mets presumably had big $ to spend. Now they have more, thanks to the Cano ban. LeMahieu and/or Ozuna fit better now. Springer, Realmuto still fit. Also need starting pitchers of course. Should be a wild winter for them. — Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) November 18, 2020
Well, this Cano news gives the Mets the opening to move Jeff McNeil to what many feel is his best position, second base. It frees up more money for various pursuits and might well mean that Robinson Cano never plays for the Mets again. Shameful development. — Howie Rose (@HowieRose) November 18, 2020
