This didn't work out so well the last time I made a season about one player, or the last time I singled one player out as the one who needed to step up this season, but there's no way to deny that the New York Yankees' 2013 season begins and ends with Robinson Cano. And it has nothing to do with the recent rash of injuries. Well it does, but that's not the only reason. This has been brewing for a few years now, a bunch of different factors all working towards this eventual endgame. The collection of big contracts, the age-related decline, the self-imposed payroll cap plans, all of it has been building to this point, when the fate of the Yankees would be placed on the shoulders of Robbie Cano.
