Do you know if Cano is done?

I forgot to mention that the Dominican league playoffs have begun. His team did not qualify, so yes I believe he's done.

Damn, he fell off pretty bad towards the end after such a hot start. Do you think we should have some concern or do you think that its just normal because he was messing with a new stance and approach.

I'm not going to get too concerned about it. He might have been trying new things, or just got into a slump without enough time to get out of it. Who knows. He's got a ton of talent so I think he'll be fine next year.
