The Yankees have certainly made a splash in free agency, and David Ortiz and the Red Sox have certainly taken notice.

In an interview with WEEI.com, Ortiz discussed the Yankees' loss of all-star second baseman Robinson Cano.

"I couldn't believe the Yankees let that walk away. He's the face, as long as he played for the Yankees, he was the face of that ballclub. He was backing up everybody."

The Red Sox designated hitter knows the Red Sox will not miss Cano in the AL East.

"This guy hurt us," Ortiz said. "He is the guy that, you're never going to forget about him because he puts up some monster numbers. He puts up some monster numbers. Now let's see how everything goes with him on the West Coast.

"He makes the game look so easy," continued Ortiz, "Now, we're not going to be able to see him that much, thank God. He's going to the West Coast. Wishing him the best. He's a good friend of mine, and like I said, well deserved."
