Lil' Robby Cano

Did someone in the Yankees organization tell John Sterling and Susan Waldman to drive Robinson Cano's price up? Do they actually do things like that? Every goddamn time I tune in, they're overpraising the guy. Today, during the Twins game, I heard Sterling intone that Cano had the most supple young thighs of any second baseman he's seen since Davey Lopes. Then Susan chimed in with an anecdote highlighting Cano's prowess with bandsaws. Sterling, not to be outdone, claimed that Cano played a crucial background role in brokering the US-China-India-Australia climate accord. 3,000 miles away, Billy Beane reached for the red phone.
