You hear this often these days: The Yankees may have Jeter, A-Rod, Teixeira and others; but, right now, this is Robinson Cano’s team.
By this, I assume, people mean that Cano is to the Yankees as Miguel Cabrera is to the Tigers and as Evan Longoria is to the Rays and as Barry Bonds was to the Giants, back in the day, etc.
I understand how people could feel this way. But, it still feels weird, for me, as a Yankees fan, to think of this team as being Cano’s team. Is this just me?
