“YOU-SOLD-OUT! YOU-SOLD-OUT! YOU-SOLD-OUT!”
Not a thank you for playing on average 160 games a season; or appreciation for being one of the best players in baseball for the last nine seasons.
Yankees fans don’t seem to care that Cano was part of the 2009 World Series Championship Team; or how Cano took part in the funniest prank since Jimmy Fallon took over the Tonight Show this past Monday night.
Do these Yankees fans even realize how stupid they look?

The whole thing was utterly embarrassing, expect for the excellent job theses fans did making the Red Sox look like class acts by behaving like a bunch of spoiled brats.
It is pointless to rattle off Cano’s Yankees stats in his defense because these fans obviously won’t listen, nor do they care to live in the real world.
Do these people realize what an oxymoron it is to claim to be a Yankees fan, but boo a player for leaving for more money?
It is like someone claiming to be an environmentalist, while always wasting water
Or calling someone pretty ugly, or proclaiming you made an exact estimate.
Nothing is more annoying than being perceived as a total moron because you happen to wear the same team’s baseball cap as another.
Bottom line is the Yankees are the innovators of luring players to the Bronx by dangling the most dollars; so saying Cano is a sellout is the definition of the pot calling the kettle black.
What a joke that fans who cheer for a team that spent $439 million bucks this off-season actually feel righteous in booing Cano.
And I am not alone in these sentiments…

Pretty disgraceful the way #Yankees fans booed Robinson Cano, arguably the best 2B in team history.

Did Yankees fans honestly chant "You sold out" at Robinson Cano? Pot meet kettle.

Robinson Cano heard chants of "you sold out" from fans of a team that spent $438 million this offseason.
