Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano took himself out of Sunday afternoon’s game against the Red Sox in the bottom of the third inning after experiencing dizziness which he attributed to the flu. He’s either sucking it up bigtime today or else the flu was of the 24-hour variety, as he’s expected to be in the lineup today.

The Mariners are a game ahead of the Tigers for the second wild card slot at the moment. You have to figure Cano would play even is arm got lopped off in an industrial accident.

    Came down with a case of the steriod flu.

      Steroids, no, just talent.

        We’ll see when the next Biogenisis names are released chief.

      Ah, the internet. The place where baseless accusations made by ignorant jackwagons meet for all to see.

        Yep. That massive decrease in power is totally normal.

        Actually, it is. You do realize that he doesn’t play half his games in Yankee stadium anymore right? His decrease in power is actually pretty typical of someone going from Yankee Stadium to Safeco Field. The reason for his power decline is surely something nefarious and not the fact that he plays in a larger ballpark.

        In defense of the Yankees, nobody is hitting many homers at Yankee Stadium this season.

    He better be out there today. They’re in a bit of a playoff race.

    They use that word “flu” to cover all sorts of ailments. I guess it sounds better than “cold” or “stomach bug.”

    Wait, I thought Cano wasn’t a gamer, or wasn’t gritty enough for new york … M-V-P.

    Haters! Can’t believe you people! The man is one of the game’s best talents, and Seattle is paying him accordingly. Sorry your, “Would you like fries with that?” job doesn’t pay as well. Jealousy is an ugly trait. Go Mariners!!! Get well, Robinson! – Former Yankees Fan.

    Lol, mariners in a playoff race. Yeah, like 15 years ago.

      You know, as an A’s fan, your reaction to the Mariners is hilarious. Craig is right, if you want to get under our skin, just ignore us. Every time you troll a Mariners story, it’s just further proof you’re worried about the M’s. And you should be. Only 5 games behind the A’s, and still 6 head-to-head matchups. So please, keep trolling.

      They’re technically not in a playoff race, because they hold the second wild card spot totally… so others, including the Tigers, are racing after them.
