So I was perusing the nation's paper of record, as I do every morning, when I came across this sports commentary comparing Evan Longoria and Robinson Cano.
As it turns out the virtuous (white) Longoria took a pay cut to remain with one team for his whole career. Playing with one team your whole career? That's an old school value, like grit and hustle, like Dustin Pedroia has.
Will Cano stay with one team his whole career? Especially now that the Yankees may not be able to guarantee annual contention? His black agent Jay-Z probably won't let him. Besides, Cano's probably too black for that sort of thing anyway. Bad news for virtue. Good news for the Dodgers.
