Ca(nò) Can Deal

According to MLB Trade Rumors and the St. Louis Dispatch, the Cardinals inquired after Yankees' second baseman Robinson Canò. The Yankees' asking price?

One Adam Wainwright.

As you might imagine, the conference didn't last very long.

At the very least, if this story is true, it shows how highly the Yankees value Canò. They obviously think that his 2008 season was a fluke; as fans we certainly hope that was the case.

There's no question that if Canò ever figured out how to hit in April and May, he could easily contend for a batting title, but he was in such a rut last year that even his normal second-half surge was not enough to really help the Yankees.

Maybe this year they should just tell him the season starts in January...


  1. you've always put the wrong accent mark on cano's name.


    and perhaps most officially:

  2. Hmm. I've always seen it over the 'o', and that would seem to make sense from what I've learned of Spanish.

    Be that as it may, thanks for the links. I'll check it out.
