As predicted, Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano was named the American League Player of the Month for April. His line for the a-month was just ridiculous: .400 BA, 8 HR, 18 RBI, 1.235 OPS. As if those numbers don't knock you cold, Cano's defense has been consistently superb. Is superb even a strong enough word to describe what Robbie does at second base? Probably not. Sublime better depicts Cano's glove work. Right now, #24 is playing in a league of his own and richly deserves this latest honor. Right now there is nobody better in the game than Robinson Cano. Nobody.
