Cano = My Man

Robinson Cano is easily my favorite player on the Yankees. Ever since his rookie year I thought he would be a superstar and lately he’s been proving me right. It’s also pretty cool that he’s named after Jackie Robinson and wears Jackie’s number backwards to pay homage to him.

As of today he leads the AL with a .363 batting average a d had 14 homers with 50 RBI. He’s also emerging as the leader of a team full of stars. A-Rod is in and out of the line-up because of injury, Jeter, as good as he is, has clearly gotten older and Mark Teixeira goes in and out depending on the month. Not only is his offense great, but so is his defense. He’s quietly become the best second baseman in baseball.

All of those factors makes Cano a very early candidate for AL MVP. What’s more interesting is he still has time to get better.
