Robinson Cano’s GPS may have caused hitless home Mets debut

Robinson Cano may want to get a more reliable GPS if he wants to help the Mets win more this year.

The New York infielder got lost on his way from the airport after the Mets returned home following a 6-4 win over the Marlins on Wednesday and his GPS was to blame for it.

The Mets ran into some problems with their flight Wednesday as they didn’t get back until 3 a.m. ET early Thursday, but Cano’s problems were compounded by the fact he got the wrong directions from his GPS on his drive home, according to the New York Post.

It was so bad Cano had to change devices midway through his ride home and didn’t get back to his abode until about 5 a.m. ET. What made matters worse was the first pitch for New York’s matchup with the Nationals on Thursday was scheduled for 1 p.m. ET. Cano then likely would have gotten about four hours of sleep before getting to the ballpark and it showed. He went 0 for 3 in the game as the Mets lost to the Stephen Strasburg-led Nationals 4-0.

It didn’t keep Cano though from having a good first experience at Citi Field in New York. The fans gave him a warm welcome in his first game at the ballpark since coming over in a trade with the Mariners during the offseason.

“I felt the love,” Cano said. “Once you commit to play for a team, your heart and everything is going to that team. The way I’ve been embraced since spring training, it’s made me feel right away like part of this team. It felt good today to go out and see all those fans, the way they support the team.”

Cano is batting .188 through 32 at-bats this season.

The Mets are 5-2  and have an off day on Friday before getting back to action with two games against Washington over the weekend.
