Cano suspended 80 games


Recommended Posts

You know what they say, you can take the man out of the Yankees, but you can't take the Yankees out of the man....

Seriously, the amount of juice that runs through that org is sick. I can't even imagine how much it costs to keep Judge, Stanton and Sanchez sauced up.

A-Rod, the gift that keeps on giving. Dude groomed Cano and Melky to cheat.

I think at this point, he's a grown man and can make his own bad decisions.

Ex-teammate Mark Teixeira 'not surprised' by Robinson Cano suspension

Robinson Cano's positive test for a banned substance and subsequent 80-game suspension announced this week came as no surprise to one of his former New York Yankees teammates.

Mark Teixeira overlapped with Cano for five seasons in New York. During a guest appearance on the Michael Kay Show on 98.7 ESPN New York on Thursday, the former first baseman was asked if he ever suspected Cano of using performance-enhancing substances.

Yeah, I don't really want to get into too much detail. I love Robbie, I'm just not surprised," said Teixeira, a baseball analyst for ESPN since retiring after the 2016 season. "I don't really want to go too much further. But I think a lot of people are kind of saying the same thing."

Teixeira did not offer any specifics or examples to support his assertion.

Major League Baseball announced Cano's suspension on Tuesday, saying he tested positive for the diuretic furosemide, which violates MLB's drug prevention and treatment program. The Seattle Mariners second baseman accepted the suspension. Under the sport's drug policy, a player is not automatically suspended for use of a diuretic unless MLB can prove he intended to use it as a masking agent.

Cano was the Yankees' second baseman while Teixeira was at first between 2009 and 2013. When Cano became a free agent after the 2013 season, he signed a 10-year contract with the Mariners for $240 million. The Yankees did not come close to matching Seattle's offer.

Teixeira said he considered Cano's associations in his New York days when formulating his suspicions about him.

"Let's just use this situation here. Robbie Cano's assistant was on the list for Biogenesis," Teixeira said Thursday, referring to the clinic at the center of Major League Baseball's 2013 PED scandal. "Now, of course, [he] had an assistant, you know, buy stuff for him. Alex Rodriguez got popped by Biogenesis and Melky [former Yankees outfielder Melky Cabrera] got popped. They were best friends. When someone gets lumped into that group, it's because there's evidence. There's a paper trail, there's a smoke trail."

Of course Texeira isn't surprised, the Yankees put that sh*t in the gatorade and every pre game/post game meal. The Yankees have defined the PED era.

Maybe they got them from the Mets clubhouse guy who peddled them out of Shea Stadium
