After Mariners' second baseman Robinson Cano received an 80-game suspension for violating the MLB's joint drug policy, everyone seemingly had something to say on the matter.
This includes Cano's former Yankee teammate Mark Teixeira, who stated he was not surprised by the suspension.
However, Teixeira's comments have now drawn a response from a former teammate of both the retired first baseman and Cano -- Yankees' pitcher C.C. Sabathia.

"I don't want to get into what Tex said, but I'll just put it like this: I'm not surprised he said that, coming from him"
It's hard to interpret exactly what Sabathia is getting at here with these comments against Teixeira. Perhaps he is suggesting that Teixeira is not a good teammate, given his willingness to call out one of his former Yankees. Or maybe he's referencing a larger, unknown beef between the three. Regardless, there appears to not be a lot of surprise, as one fan comically acknowledged on Twitter.
And I’m not surprised that CC said that Texeira was not surprised about cano— Nick Ross (@NickRoss518) May 24, 2018
It seems that the only person in surprise right now is Cano, as he still claims that his suspension was a shock to him after taking the drugs that resulted in his suspension.
