Robinson Cano is one of the best players in baseball, and he should be for years to come. When one of the best young players in the game is accused of using performance-enhancing drugs, it’s a major story. Whether the source who reports it is credible or not, any steroid accusation in this day and age is going to get people talking. That’s why Dan Tordjman of WSOC-TV in Charlotte tweeted out an overdue apology on Thursday.


According to the NY Daily News, Tordjman tweeted from his personal Twitter account on Sept. 20 that Major League Baseball was scheduled to announce Cano had tested positive for PED use. The MLB and the Yankees quickly refuted the information, and two weeks later Tordjman admitted he posted falso information.



On 9/20 I tweeted I expected #MLB to announce @robinsoncano tested positive for PEDs. This information was FALSE. (cont’d)

I, @coxmediagroup, and @wsoc_tv all apologize to Mr. #Cano, and to the #Yankees and their fans. (cont’d)


— Dan Tordjman (@DanTordjman) October 4, 2012



I shouldn’t have posted false info about #Cano, and afterward, I should’ve admitted it was false and apologized right away. I am very sorry.

I’m not sure why it took two weeks for him to apologize, but better late than never I suppose. Cheating in baseball is an incredibly sensitive subject, and those types of accusations can tarnish a player’s career. WSOC-TV also issued an on-air apology and Tordjman made a donation to The Robinson Cano Foundation. We all knew it wasn’t true anyway, because Jose Canseco didn’t report it.
