Cano smoked that ball btw. Can't say that was bad hitting, no matter the result.
So we agree to disagree. I see it as a timely opportunity wasted and you see it as a minor issue that could be atoned for via a home run. Nothing could have helped us yesterday: our 9th straight loss in Tampa.
(48-32) Pitching, defense, mental errors, etc. were all contributing factors to the loss.
