Jogging in pain, Robbie Cano is an inspiration to the people of Seattle

And they will remember it in 2023, when he's finishing his $23 million per season contract.

But for now... let's give credit to the man who is not Stephen Drew or Brendan Ryan.

From the Seattle Times:

Despite a lingering abdominal strain, Robinson Cano was in Seattle's lineup (2 hits, 2 RBI last night) - and likely will be all the way through the final series. (Manager Lloyd) McClendon said he does not plan on giving Cano any more off days.

"He's a tough SOB," McClendon said. "It's unfortunate people think he's dogging it when he's not. He's actually going and posting up every day when most people haven't been able to go. And he's been productive too."

Cano is batting .323 with 12 home runs and 39 runs batted in since July 1. 

"That's just Robbie being Robbie," McClendon said. "Check the back of his baseball card. He's done it for 11 years."

And when he does it for another eight years, he'll be more than worth it. Maybe the Yankees will reacquire him and consider it a bargain.

the Cano acquisition may not work out great for Seattle, which would be just fine with most of us who visit this site, but I don't begrudge Robbie. He played his best baseball for us, was our best player for several years, and then he had a chance to cash in and he did. Screw Cashman for his bitchy, "It's all about the money for him" quote. Screw Cashman. I don't give a fudge about his budget, and once his contract expired, Cano didn't owe the Yankees anything. The Yankees tried to get a hometown discount even though he's from the Dominican Republic, Seattle came in with a monster offer, and he's playing over there in Coffee Town. Good luck to you, Robbie Cano, doncha know!
