Did ya not know where New York Yankees Robinson Cano deserves to go? Well, it is Kansas City, Missouri as one of the 2012 AL All-Star representative. Cano has without question been the best second baseman in the American League so far this season; and he deserves to start in the 2012 All-Star Game on July 10th. As the reigning 2011 Home-Run Derby Champion, Cano is already going to KC, as it is tradition for the earlier year’s winner to be named the Captain of his respected division’s Derby Team the following season.
