I hope the NYY trade Cano for someone of value this offseason. Cano is not the kind of player around whom you build a contender. His head is not in the game, he's lackadaisical and obviously lazy. He will continue to hurt the team with his mental errors.

I'm tired of hearing about his "potential" when he's in his 4th season w/the team, yet continues to play like a clueless rookie. He plays flatfooted as opposed to on the balls of his feet, he throws from his back foot and when he bats he has no idea what he wants to do except hack; he doesn't have a plan before facing the pitcher. It's as if he wasn't paying attention to the previous hitter's at-bat.

He can't run the bases intelligently, doesn't hustle out of the box and doesn't steal bases, fails to advance the runner and can't bunt to save his life. I'm sure some sycophant will tell us how great "he's going to be some day". Hey, trade him and let him grow up elsewhere. Get someone of value for him while they still can.
