Default Robinson Cano can win a World Series Ring with 3 different teams

Wow

Robinson Cano played for and got cut by 3 teams.

He sits home and gets paid over 20 million dollars to help his team win again by not playing and if

The Braves, Mets, or Padres win it all he gets a ring.

I did not realize that

For a man who ranks 7th all time among second basemen according to JAWS, he managed to take himself into deserved and permanent oblivion.

I don’t remember a player self destructing so bad as Cano. Even Bonds and Clemens have the “still the best and you know it, haters” element. Cano just… complete suicide.

I’m sure someone else has done it or worse, but he’s the one who always comes to mind here.

A fitting farewell tour lol, hitting .150 or whatever, and disappearing in July with probably not one line in the press. From first-ballot HOF to nowhere.

I mean maybe the first suspension was not the death knell, as I recall he tested positive for a diuretic which I suppose could have been a medical thing and he just fucked up documenting it, although I don't remember the details now.

The second one, no plausible mitigating circumstances.

Hard to believe even Cano would accept a ring under such circumstances.

Cano was on a HOF path, but also seemed to be getting setup to be a long-term face of the Post-Jeter Yankees before he left. Boy did he screw that up. Other users have gotten more hate, but none of them have quite gotten the same cold shoulder and just being ignored like Cano has. He went from good press to no press pretty quick. A-Rod, Manny both got busted twice too as I recall, but neither just kind of disappeared even while they were still there.

Palmeiro similarly became persona non grata pretty quickly.

A lot of guys become persona non grata. Hell, Bonds was straight up blackballed out of baseball. I remember he even offered to play for the minimum and no one bit, after he posted a .480 on base to lead the league yet again in his final season.

What saves these guys is that they hit the huge milestones, and while they became unwelcome they couldn't be ignored. Palmeiro got over 500/3,000 and his name still comes up plenty, in a negative way, but there. Cano didn't really become persona non grata, he just became almost not even there at all, a footnote instead of a villain.

Not persona non grata, just persona non lol.

I don't know Peter. Given Cano's behavior, I tend to believe he would happily accept a ring.

Good riddance.

He will take it guaranteed as would most players and he will take the share of the money that goes with it

Just to set the record straight, I can pinpoint exactly when his demise started. After watching him for years, I finally said "This guy might end up being a HOFer." So I bought a GU bat of his. One week later, suspension and fast track to oblivion.

If anyone wants me to help pick stocks for them, I'm available cheap.

To the best of my knowledge, a Word Series ring is not guaranteed to every player who appeared in a regular-season game with the eventual WS winner. I believe it is up to the team management to decide who gets a ring.

Similarly, I believe that the players on the WS roster determine who gets full shares and who gets partial shares of the WS money. It seems unlikely that Cano would get even a partial share (but yes, he does get his full, guaranteed salary for the season).

You could be right I was only going by the argument

Also my understanding (which can be wrong) is that the full share/partial share has only who gets a percentage of the money and not who gets the ring.

Correct--the team owner (or their designate) decides who gets a WS ring, and the players decide who gets shares of the WS money.

Looks like he's down to just the Padres, and I'm hoping my Phillies can knock them out in the NLCS.
