Readers Thread: Looking Back- When Robinson Cano Went to Seattle

Readers Thread: Looking Back- When Robinson Cano Went to Seattle

January 14, 2024


A series of discussions came up the other day in the comments regarding the fact that the Yankees did not re-sign Robinson Cano before the 2014 season. The Seattle Mariners made a big offer, blowing the Yankees' offer away - and Cano went to Seattle.

Looking back, many are happy that the Yankees didn't sign Cano. The last years of his career weren't so wonderful...

On the other hand, by not signing Cano, the Yankees pivoted and signed Jacoby Ellsbury. The Yankees also went through a few seasons where they didn't have a quality second baseman. They had no back-up plan for losing Cano.

In retrospect, would the Yankees have been better off resigning Robinson Cano?

We look forward to seeing the various perspectives from our readers in respectful dialogue and debate.

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
