Missing Robinson Cano Yet?

Since the New York Yankees lost one of their own in Robinson Cano to free agency the team has seen the likes of Brian Roberts, Yangervis Solarte, Stephen Drew and others playing at the vacated second base position. None of these players have been especially good but with players like Jose Pirela and Robert Refsnyder on the horizon there seems to finally be a light at the end of the tunnel. Oh and when Cano does stuff like he did earlier this week it doesn’t make me miss him much either.

Cano is easily one of the best players in the game of Major League Baseball but could you imagine what he could be if he put forth 110% and kept his head in the game? We’d be talking about one of the best players of all-time. Instead we’re talking about how Cano simply trotted home after one of his teammates, Logan Morrison, drew a walk. Cano obviously thought the bases were loaded but they weren’t as the Mariners only had a runner on second base joining Cano at third. Whoops.

Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Paco Rodriguez caught Cano trying to “steal home” and the Mariners second baseman was eventually tagged out at third base. Hey we all make mistakes and Cano did take full responsibility for the play after the game calling himself the “dumbest guy in the game” but these little nonchalant plays happen a little too often for Cano. Remember when many in Seattle worried that his physical after signing his free agent mega deal was going to be a simple run down to first base after a single? Well I made that last part up but you get the picture. Cano, get your head in the game pal!
