In his first live at-bat as a Mariner, Robinson Cano took the first pitch he saw and drove it back up the middle for a single. He is a good baseball player, and he will continue to be good (or great) in Seattle this season.

He will get on base (either with hits or walks) and he will hit the ball all over the place. Sure, he will hit less home runs than he did at New Yankee Stadium, but then again, what lefty power hitter wouldn’t?
