When a friend told me this morning that Melky Cabrera had been traded, I was shocked.

It wasn’t even a rumor. It just happened. Abruptly.

Despite Melky’s inconsistency at the plate, he was a fan favorite in New York.
Teammates and fans enjoyed his jovial demeanor on a team generally regarded as rigid. It has always seemed like Melky plays for his love for baseball rather than for the money he earns.

Whether he was chasing down a deep fly ball, making his signature wide turn around first, or delivering in the clutch, Melky was a joy to watch every night. It’s a shame that he is no longer a Yankee.

This slideshow commemorates some of the highlights of Melky’s career as in New York.
