This week’s Sports Illustrated features a Tom Verducci story on the emergence of Robinson Cano, who Verducci calls one of the greatest slugging second basemen since Rogers Hornsby.

“My dad stayed up from seven until two in the morning just to do my contract,” Cano told SI. “Teams just wanted to give me like 20 [thousand dollars], and my dad was like, ‘Come on.’ That was the one thing about my dad. He would say, ‘I know your talent. I know you. I’ve been in this game a long time. I’m not going to give you away for free.’”

The June 28 issue hits newsstands tomorrow and will be waiting in my mailbox when I get home.
