Cano Barks Back At A’s Over Sign-Stealing Charge
OAKLAND (CBS Sports) — Robinson Cano couldn’t believe the Oakland A’s thought he was stealing signs.
During the 13th inning of the New York Yankees’ 18-inning loss to the Athletics Thursday afternoon/night, the Yankees second baseman Cano verbally sparred with A’s catcher Derek Norris briefly. After the game, Cano said Norris accused him of stealing signs, and he was none too pleased with the accusation.
“It was the catcher talking,” Cano said. “He said that I was giving signs. When he first said something, he came to the mound and had his mask on. And then after that, they struck out Vernon [Wells] and I said, ‘Throw the ball over the plate,’ you know what I mean?”
