Robinson Cano elated to be in NY 00:03:53
Robinson Cano joined Steve Gelb after his introductory press conference. The second baseman is excited to be back in NY with the Mets.

Robinson Cano is back in New York wearing pinstripes, but with a slight color change. This time around, his No. 24 jersey will have the Mets' blue and orange, and he couldn't be happier as he donned it for the first time on Tuesday during his introductory press conference. 

But Cano doesn't want too much change from his last stint in New York, more specifically what position he plays. Speaking with SNY's Steve Gelbs, the 36-year-old said second base -- his natural position -- is where he hopes to play every game with the Mets. 

"To be honest, it's hard when you have to move around when you play second base for 14 years," he said. "Hopefully I'll be able to play second base every day."

"That was a little surprising. I was a little pissed off, and I'm sure Joe [Girardi] feels the same way. He's concerned with his team and what they're doing, not what the Seattle Mariners players are doing."Read more: ESPN

It was reported yesterday that Victor Cruz would follow fellow New York superstar Robinson Cano to Jay-Z's new sports management firm.

Cruz, a restricted free agent, is now officially a part of Creative Artists Agency (CAA). The Giants wide receiver recently hired CAA's Tom Condom to represent him, and it is expected he will handle Cruz's contract negotiations with the team.

In addition to his salsa dance, Cruz celebrated his touchdowns last season by flashing the Roc hand sign, which looks like he's forming a diamond. Cruz declined speaking about his future endeavors, but sources said Cruz's actions were his way of notifying people he was joining Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports family.
