Robinson Cano and the Yankees: What's Good for the Goose (is Good for the Gander?)

Yankees' fans are angry that Robinson Cano is leaving Gotham City for the Pacific Northwest. Here's a sample of tweets from some fans after learning that he signed a 10 year contract with the Seattle Mariners ("17 angry Yankee Fans Who Don’t Accept Robinson Cano’s ‘Thank You’ to New York"):
@RobinsonCano do you want the autographed ball I have back You can sell it and keep the money since that's all you care about

@RobinsonCano have fun winning 60 games for the next ten years, you no good sell out
@RobinsonCano @Mariners i hope both your acl's explode and your career is over you traitor  
@RobinsonCano @Mariners TRADER!! U will never see another October .. Ya u will be rich but no more rings .. Fade away into oblivion 
@RobinsonCano @Mariners - enjoy obscurity! Could've gone down as one of the greats... now you're just another $ fiend  
@RobinsonCano have fun with money and no rings good by traitor. You never hustled anyway, never was a true yankee
Traitor? (or TRADER -- I guess not all Yankee fans can spell). Sell out? Money is all you care about?  Where have these fans been the past few decades? Don't they realize that one of the reasons why so many fans dislike the Yankees is because they're known for using $$$$ to entice players away from other teams. Evidently not. Do names like Reggie Jackson, Catfish Hunter, Alex Rodriguez, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Johnny ("looks like Jesus, acts like Judas, throws like Mary") Damon ring a bell? (For the unwashed, all are players who left smaller market teams for the Yankees and a larger salary.) I guess as far as Yankees' fans are concerned, what's good for the goose isn't good for the gander.
