Mired in a Slump or Stuck in Suck-Town
Friday, May 02, 2008
The poor performances of Hughsie and I-Ken have been getting a lot of press this season, but there's another youngster on the Yanks that's been doing his fair share of failing: my beloved Robinson Cano. There's no denying it, folks - he's been sucking big time since the start of the season and has given us no indication that he's getting ready to bust out any time soon. Take a look at his performance over the course of the first 30 games:

At-bats: 110
Hits: 17
Batting Average: .155
Strikeouts: 14
Walks: 7
OBP: .212
Slugging: .236
Stolen Bases: 0
Caught Steeling: 2

Troubling, yes, but is it a long-term concern? Let's not forget that last year he hit .306 and the year before that an extremely impressive .342; clearly he is not lacking skill or talent. So what are we to make of this embarrassing display? For his part, Cano is looking more and more sickened with himself after every strikeout and fly ball - he has even curtailed his trademark dancing with the Melkster - and who can blame him? I'm sure it IS frustrating to know that you have the talent to succeed but are continuing to fall short (it's certainly frustrating to watch). The question isn't whether he CAN hit, it's whether he WILL pull himself out of this and get on track.

Nothing - He's Just Starting Slow. Be Patient.
Everything - He Sucks. End of Story.

There's also the bigger question of WHY he's doing so poorly. Could the manager change have anything to do with it? WWJTD (What Would Joe Torre Do... 2 points to all of you that have honed your figuring-out-the-YC-acronyms skills)? Perhaps all he really needs is some loving pats on the back.

    Thanks to Wikipedia, I've been rapidly improving my acronyms skills.
    If only they taught us this in grad school, since it took me a year or so to figure out all those att commercials.

    Wonder if not having Mattingly around is affecting him. How long before Donnies brought in anyway? Theres a poll for ya, if Girardi doesn't get the team rollin, how long before Hankster is bootin him and bringing back Donnie? He does seem less patient (if thats possible) than Daddy-O.
