Pleading the fifth with Cano

Robinson Cano has not not driven in a run since time began.

Or June 17, it only seems like since time began. When Mariano Rivera has more RBI than you do in the last nine games, something is amiss.

Cano is hitting .300 after getting a couple of hits last night. But he’s now at .213 with runners in scoring position, .190 with runners in scoring position and two outs. With a runner on third and less than two outs, he’s hitting .188.

These things happen. But these things do not need to happen to the No. 5 hitter. We applaud Joe Girardi for his lineup discipline this season after last year’s lineup roulette. But it could be time to get somebody else behind A-Rod.
