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.
Still even though Red Sox David Ortiz, who was El Capitan in 2011, passes this torch to Cano (and technically his father, Mr. Cano who pitched to his son in all the Derby’s rounds) it is not the same as going as an AL All-Star.
Since the All-Star voting began, Rangers 2B Ian Kinsler had been on top and Cano was a close second that was until yesterday.
