Robinson Cano's GPS may have caused hitless home Mets debut

Robinson Cano's GPS may have caused hitless home Mets debut Robinson Cano may want to get a more reliable GPS if he wants to help the Mets win more this year. The New York infielder got lost on his way from the airport after the Mets returned home following a 6-4 win over the Marlins on Wednesday and his GPS was to blame for it. The Mets ran into some problems with their flight Wednesday as they didn't get back until 3 a.m. ET early Thursday, but Cano's problems were compounded by the fact he got the wrong directions from his GPS on his drive home, according to the New York Post.

A mischievous tortoise has been fitted with a GPS tracker after wandering off hundreds of times - at a blistering pace of 65 yards an hour.

The tortoise, named Mikey, found a way to escape from his supposedly 'tortoise-proof' pen and his owner Rosie Saxelby, 18, from Nottingham, has to hunt for him most days.

Now, she and parents Lucy, 42, and Jonathan, 55, as well as siblings Violet, 11, Daisy, 15, Clyde, 17, and Marigold, nine, have resorted to fitting him with the device, which uses satellite technology to make sure he can't go missing again.

'He's only thought to be around ten though, and they can live till they're 100, so it's going to have to be sturdy.

'We have 15 pets in total - including two basset hounds, a giant African Sulcata tortoise, three created geckos, three horses, two pygmy goats, two farm cats, and two goldfish but none of them have caused as much trouble as this tortoise.
