1) One of the best Rookies in the game,plays second base for the New York Yankees;in his first season with the team he left pretty impressive numbers such as a .297 AVG.,14 homeruns, and 62 RBI's.He also accomplished his first grand slam in New York.Was named AL Rookie of the Month for September, batting .381 (40-for-105) with 22 runs, nine doubles, two triples, five homers and 16 RBIs. Ranked first in the American League with a .335 road batting average.Was the third-highest road batting average by a rookie since 1969.Recorded his first Major-League hit with a third-inning single on May 4th.Established a single-game career high with four hits in May 15th win at Oakland.Hit his first career home run in May 24th win vs. Detroit.Was named the American League's co-Player of the Week for the week ending 9/18 after batting .429 (12-for-28) with a league-leading 13 RBIs and nine runs scored.
2) Part of a World Championship team even though in his first year with the Yankees he didnt win a World Series he still brought his team to playoff contention.
3) Should have won Rookie of the Year just because the amount of pressure he fills in the pinstripes
4) The basic defintion of Robinson Cano is that he defines everything New York will become and is the future of one of the greatest dynasties in baseball...and BELIEVE ME,he will win a MVP, Gold Glove, and World Series in pinstripes...guaranteed.
I've seen many great Yankees take this stage, but none have handled it better than Robinson Cano.
The more talent I see, I compare it to none other then Robinson Cano.
Robinson Cano handled his first Rookie Season with high numbers in every catagory.
