Cano talks Yankees on 'Tonight Show'

Robinson Cano chats it up with Jimmy Fallon on 'The Tonight Show' set.
NEW YORK -- Back in New York for his first game since leaving the Yankees in the offseason, Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano discussed on "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon the reception he hopes to get in Yankee Stadium.
"The way I left New York I left in a good way," Cano told Fallon. "I'll hopefully get a good standing ovation. But if its not I'm going to have fun. I'm still going to have some love for the New York fans, for all those years I was here. They were so patient and so kind to me, and I really want to thank them for that."
A standing ovation might be tough to muster. What Cano did produce, however, was a very entertaining man-on-the-street bit, which shows how fans might not always respond the way they say they will.
Cano left New York after signing a 10-year, $240 million contract with Seattle. He will be one of Fallon’s guests on the Monday night show, which airs at 11:30 p.m.
