Five Guys That Could Replace Robinson Cano in New York
Unless you’ve been under a rock for the last week, you’ve heard the big news involving the Yankees. Sure, Curtis Granderson jumped on the seven-train to play with the Mets and the Bombers in turn replaced him with Carlos Beltran. However, the biggest news involved a second baseman that left the Big Apple for the great northwest.
Robinson Cano did the unthinkable and left New York for Seattle. The 31 year old second baseman got that superstar contract that he so desired when he signed a 10-year $240 million deal with the Mariners. Besides the fact that the Yankees have never let a free agent of Cano’s magnitude go, they now have to think about possible replacements for the five-time All-Star.
So where do they turn first? It’s very unlikely for either of the Steinbrenners or Brian Cashman to jump on to our site to find these answers, but we would like to be prepared just in case they did. With that being said, here is a list of five guys that the Yankees would love to have to forget about Cano.
