He doesn't deserve the AL MVP like I predicted he would back in March, but there is good reason to believe that Robinson Cano just might carry the New York Yankees to a World Series title. 

Looking back, four of my five "bold predictions" for the 2012 Yankees turned out terribly inaccurate at the conclusion of the regular season. 

Derek Jeter didn't get dropped in the batting order, he flirted with a batting title. 

Alex Rodriguez didn't drive in 100 runs—try 57. 

Michael Pineda certainly didn't come close to 17 wins because he didn't throw a single pitch for the Yankees in 2012. 

And Robinson Cano might be in the MVP discussion if it wasn't for a guy in Detroit who decided to win the Triple Crown. 

Luckily, my fifth and final forecast still has life.

There were times during the strenuous season when I questioned if New York had what it takes to win their 28th World Series championship, but those doubts have diminished. 

The last two weeks of the season showed me they are definitely capable. 

But who will take them there? 

Here are three reasons why Robinson Cano will carry the Yankees to a World Series title.
