Due to the shocking Robinson Cano signing, I’m going to be sending in a pinch-hitter tomorrow, replacing the would-be Bizarre Baseball Culture installment I was planning that featured Ozzie Smith and Tony the Tiger (seriously) with a very special installment that features two comics from 2002 in which the Mariners fight a Sasquatch invasion.
You have been warned.
The Yankees swept a double-header yesterday, and a big reason was Robinson Cano, who had 6 hits and 4 RBIs during the games.
Standings, as always, under the jump:
Robinson Cano has basically had to strap the Yankees onto his shoulders at times over the past months, and last night he proved again why he is one of the finest players in the American League, going 3-4 with a HR and 3 RBIs against the Royals.
Standings, as always, after the jump:
Robinson Cano went 3-for-4 with a walk and had two home runs and three RBIs in the Yankee win yesterday, making him the MVP of Yesterday.
As always, standings after the jump:
David Wright and Robinson Cano will be the captains for the HR derby, each picking three from their league to participate in this year’s Derby. In theory, they can choose whoever they want, although I wouldn’t be surprised if MLB makes some heavy suggestions and would block if Robinson Cano picked a pitcher to participate, or something.
But, anyway, who should Cano and Wright pick?
I have some ideas after the jump:
The Yankees again routed the Indians yesterday, led by Robinson Cano, who went 4-6 with a HR and 5 RBIs. While the game wasn’t close enough for this to truly make a difference, it is hard to ignore, making him the MVP of Yesterday.
Honorable Mention: Kris Medlen, Jose Altuve, Michael Young, Cliff Lee
MVP standings (after jump):
Continuing the international flavor of the Pictures of the Day, here’s a picture of perhaps the best player who will be suiting up for the Dominican Republic this year: Robinson Cano.
