Robinson Cano is New York Yankees First Half MVP
If the New York Yankees had to choose a most valuable player today, they’d have to go with Robinson Cano. No other second baseman has his kind of power, and he’s proven himself with his glove as well.
Cano has become a legitimate power threat this year, clubbing 21 home runs, driving in 65 RBI’s, and hitting a solid .302. In addition, he is durable and dependable, playing in every game this season. Having such a strong bat in the lineup every day is a huge boost to any team, especially one with a floundering offense. The Yankees have had their share of injuries to some of their best hitters. If it wasn’t for Cano’s constant production, they’d be in the basement of the AL East right now.
Cano has also developed into an outstanding second baseman. Don’t let his nonchalant style fool you; he makes incredible plays day in and day out, and he makes them look easy. He won the 2010 American League Gold Glove Award at second base, and also last year’s award. I wouldn’t be surprised if he won again this year.
New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano has proven himself to be the best player on the team. He is by far the best offensive second baseman in baseball, and his fielding is excellent to boot. The Yankees couldn’t ask for anything more.
