Definitely A-Rod takes too much of the heat. Cano is a better pure hitter than anybody in baseball right now except Pujols and maybe Votto. A few years ago I would have put Ichiro up there, but probably not anymore. I'd say in terms of just having a great swing and being able to consistently drive the ball Cano even edges out Miggy and McCutcheon. And he's hit even more poorly in this series than A-Rod. Why doesn't he take the heat? Right now I could scarcely care less how much money A-Rod makes. Most of that was the hope that he'd bring in fans when he pushed on some big HR milestones, which may or may not wind up happening. As of now Cano is the best hitter on that Yankee team, so he deserves a big chunk of the blame for his contribution to the team's offensive woes, and I haven't heard him implicated in the popular media at all.
