The fans were loud and relentless last night in a rainy cold night at Yankee Stadium. The boos followed Robinson Cano through all five of his at-bats, and were as loud as they could be, even when most the fans left early. There was no denying it, he didn’t get the reception he thought he was going to get. The Yankees even scraped a video tribute for Cano at the last minute, assuming that fans were not going to take kindly to it. If you watched the game last night or were in attendance, you heard what really went down last night. CC Sabathia was asked about Cano’s reception in his post game interview and he said he “wasnt surprised, it’s New York.” We’ve decided to compile all the video from last night’s game from three different aspects.
First is MLB Video’s take on the Cano reception, which is seen through the eyes of Seattle’s ROOT Sports, which is the TV home of the Mariners. MLB labeled it as “mixed reactions.” Clearly they tried to look for fans cheering and avoid the obvious.
Second video comes via YES Network video which is a little more accurate. This really shows how loud and bad the boos were.
And finally video from the fans ascpect. This comes courtesy of our own staff writer Rich Kaufman, who was at the game last night.
But the infamous Bleacher Creatures got it the best, by chanting “you sold out, you sold out” after baiting him in with the traditional Yankee Stadium roll call when Cano made his first apperance in the field in the bottom of the first inning. Unfortunately there isn’t any video of it, if you were watching the game on YES last night, you could clearly hear those chants. In the end Cano got what Yankee fans wanted him to have, unpleasant first homecoming. The boos will probably carry on throughout the entire series, and if the weather gets better, it could be worse with a larger crowds. But in the end, Cano and the Mariners got the last laugh by beating the Yankees 6-3 last night.
