GIF: Robinson Cano aware of Jose Molina's lack of speed
Jose Molina hit into a double play on Sunday, and Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano took his sweet ol' time replaying the ball to first.
Here's an inning-ending double play in the sixth inning of the Yankees-Rays game on Sunday. As you can see, Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano is keenly aware that slow-footed Jose Molina is going down the first-base line.
Here it is, thanks to my colleague Mike Axisa:
Molina somehow has 16 career stolen bases in 22 attempts. And three triples!
UPDATE: Make that 17 of 23 in stolen bases, because Molina stole a base in the eighth inning on Sunday. Perfect timing.
