Robinson Cano hit an easy groundball to Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta in the top of the second inning of this ALCS Game 3 in Detroit, extending his postseason hitless streak to 27 straight at-bats.

Cano already set the postseason record for offensive futility in Game 2 and is now merely padding on.

The Tigers managed a single and a walk against Yankees right-hander Phil Hughes in the bottom of the first inning but were ultimately unable to push a run across. They did nothing in the second. Game 3 is tied 0-0 as the top of the third gets underway.

    As bad as Cano’s looking, it could all change in one AB.

      I suspect Cano’s future at bats are in Tampa in March of 2013. Yanks look like they couldn’t hit sand if they fell off a camel.

    Why isn’t Cano being sat?

    That cheer you hear in the background is KC fans.

    There’s hope Yankees fans … Not much, but definitely hope, as there is a precedent that a team could choke even when they’re up 3-0 in the ALCS.

    If Yankees fans aren’t still in denial about the biggest choke in the history of MLB playoffs, they might even remember which team set the choking precedent,

    But alas, this is looking like a failed season for the Yanks – but look on the bright side… They’ll get to belatedly join the Red Sox on the golf course soon, and they only have another 5 years and $125 million left on the contract of a guy they need to pinch hit for in the playoffs.

    It ain’t over until it’s over – just ask the 2004 Yankees. I can’t stand the Yankees but they are dangerous until you get the last out. Do NOT underestimate them.
