The Star-Ledger-US PRESSWIRE
New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano is one mean fantasy baseball player.
The Bronx Bombers always feature a lineup loaded with fantasy studs.
Curtis Granderson refined his power stroke, besting a career-high 41 home runs from last year with 43 this season. Derek Jeter turned in a vintage year to lead all shortstops in a season when all other options seemed to under perform. CC Sabathia fell of his usual lofty pace but still served as a consistent source of wins and strikeouts.
Yet, Robinson Cano once again distinguished himself above his many talented teammates. A career-high in home runs and runs helped him to another year as the top-ranked second baseman, the No. 9 ranked hitter on Yahoo's player rater.
Most importantly, Cano was an absolute monster during championship week, with eight consecutive multi-hit games, three home runs, 11 runs and 15 RBI powered by seven doubles.
He probably won many titles on his own with a 4-of-4, three-run, six-RBI final night powered by two round trips.
