Watch Robinson Cano and his beautiful swing homer off Max Scherzer for Opening Day's first dinger
The last time Robinson Cano played for a New York team, he and his beautiful swing were cranking dingers for the Yankees. Now, after five seasons in Seattle, he's back as a 36-year-old for the Mets.
You and I, being the Mets fans that we are, may have questioned whether Cano is still Cano. Can he still hack it in the middle of a lineup? Can he still overpower rain storms with his ferocious swing? Indeed he can.
Yes, that's also off Max Scherzer -- who some hack writer called the greatest pitcher in the world. Cano is now on pace for 165 home runs this season.
