Cano batted fifth for most of the regular season batting .302 with 28 HR's and 118 RBI's.

This off-season, the Yankees brass have yet to sign any Once-In-A-Generation sluggers to Rodriguean money, and no Yankee batsman has been implemented in a Rodriguean PED scandal. No Yankee player has ended up exposed in a spread in the society pages. Since Freddy, no pitcher of significance have been signed by the Bombers, foreign or domestic. The Yankees aren't mentioned...

Derek Jeter is One Hell of A Guy
Sigh. Take my gift, please!
