Cano changes batting stance

Yesterday afternoon I was watching the Dominican play Panama and I saw Robinson Cano play.  When he got up to bat, I immediately noticed that his stance had changed.  

I don't have a picture for you yet, but I can tell you that it is less open than it was before.  What I mean by that, is his front foot is pointed more towards the pitcher than it was before.

I don't know if it's working for him though, because when I saw his at bat, he routinely grounded out to second base.  Cano went 1-for-3 with a walk in the game.

Cano could really be a determining factor for the Yankees this season.  If he comes out with another sub-.280 season, it might be his last with the Yanks.  How huge would it be to see him come back strong with another .342 season?

He's gonna hit over .300 this year and hit 3rd for the Yankees

He actually changed it toward the end of the year around when he got benched. If you remember, he hit much better over the last 10 games or so.

I didn't really get to see him at the end of the year actually. When I saw him two days ago, that was my first time all spring.

If he ends up returning to his good form, I could see him batting second or fifth, because by the time he proves he's good again, A-Rod will already back. Plus, he's normally a second half hitter, and has really bad starts.
