Ironically, it was a hit that may have ended Robinson Cano’s Mets career. Two weeks ago, Cano smacked a perfectly placed ball down the left field line. It should have been a standup double.
Instead, Cano was thrown out at second base, and it wasn’t close. At age 39, it seemed apparent both Cano’s legs were betraying him. His hitting wasn’t adequate either, as his batting average stood at .195 when Mets owner Steve Cohen bit the bullet and agreed to release Cano despite his hefty contract.
