Hard Hittin’ Mark Whiten Player of the Week


This post should have been up yesterday – as it goes up on most Monday’s – but it was hard to select a player for HHMWPOTW.

You see, not every week in baseball is someone going to go totally apeshit and hit 6 or 7 home runs. We’ve just been incredibly lucky because Miguel Cabrera, Dominic Brown, and Jay Bruce have been very accommodating since we started this little award.

This boy who takes home the hardware is in a contract year, and when a guy like Robby Cano is in a contract year; you know he’s going to get someone sooner or later.

In the week that was, Cano went .375/.484/.833 with 3 home runs and 10 RBI. He walked six times and struck out only ONCE.

Robby went boom.
