, all the time

We’ve officially passed the half-way point of the marathon Yankee season, and it’s time to take a look at our Player of the Game archive for some perspective.

It’s no shock that A-Rod has taken player of the game honors in 17% of the 81 games. It's shocking that Posada has only garnered the award 3 times in what is definitely his best season as a pro. Robinson Cano has been streaky to the extreme, with 6 awards in what has been a sub-par season thus far. Anyway, without further adieu, the leaderboard:
