Yanks vs. Dodgers Series — Cano a Superhero

Three years ago I was in my friend’s dorm room watching the Yanks lose another first round of the playoffs (yes, they don’t win every year), which were to be the final games in pinstripes for both manager Joe Torre and third basemen Alex Rodriguez. I remember Yanks fans booing A-Rod every day as a Yankee because he wasn’t “clutch” enough but no one wanted Torre to go.

That being said, both Torre and A-Rod were on the field again this passed weekend as the Yanks took on the Dodgers.
