As much as it pains me to say as a Red Sox fan, Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano has been straight awesome this season. The latest example came Thursday night against the Orioles, as Cano had two home runs among his three hits and raised his batting average to an AL-high .407.
"We couldn't get him out, and the way he's hitting right now, no one in the American League is getting him out," Orioles manager Dave Trembley told the Associated Press.
Cano's move to the fifth spot in the New York order, behind Alex Rodriguez, has really paid off. The way he's going right now, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him compete for the AL batting title.
