Point is, don't criticize Cano, for doing what he did, even if they didn't want to.
and show me where he put down his good friend cano
When the news broke, CC Sabathia called to congratulate his friend. He had spent five seasons with Robinson Cano, and now the star second baseman was headed to Seattle. He joked Cano should “look out” when they square off next year, and wished him well.
“Just a player like that, putting on the pinstripes, and being able to play your whole career in New York means something – to me, obviously,” Sabathia said after an event showcasing his wife Amber’s CCandy clothing line at The Mall at Short Hills. “It didn’t mean that much to him. It’s a difficult choice being a free agent. And he made a tough choice. I know he’s happy with his decision, and his family’s happy. So that’s good.”

It means something to him, since the NYY ponied up the cash. He's patting himself on the back, while dissing Cano...it didn't mean that much to him...but did to me. CC realized it, then tried to spin it and back track, with what you highlighted.
Cano was homegrown, CC wasn't.
This is true, and obvious.
