Fox broadcasters chatted that Yankees must re-sign Cano but were silent on his continuing to jog to first base

6/3/13, "Broadcasters quiet as Yankees' Cano doesn't hustle again," NY Post, Phil Mushnick

"After a three-way chat between Joe Buck, Tim McCarver and Ken Rosenthal on how the Yankees must re-sign Cano, perhaps for $200 million, Cano hit one to the right of Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia, who made a diving stop, rose, reversed course, then threw Cano out ... by two yards.

A tape showed what we’ve come to expect: First, Cano jogged. Next, after seeing Pedroia had to dive, he began to run. Finally, as Pedroia began to throw toward first, Cano resumed jogging. The least he could do was all that he did. Again.

But, again, no one calling the game on TV saw — or saw fit to mention — that Cano surrendered early, that he surrenders early and often.

Recently, the Yankees batting order often featured Brett Gardner busting it to first, followed by Cano jogging. That’s tough to take, like dropping your ice cream cone after two licks. But on TV, this is seen, not heard."...
