Cano clarifies MVP talk

On Friday, Robinson Cano reiterated his stance on the AL MVP -he'd still vote for himself.

But, Cano wondered, who wouldn't?

He compared it to a presidential candidate casting a vote in an election - obviously he's going to vote for himself.

"It’s like you ask my mom, whose the prettiest man in the world? She’s going to say my son, right?" Cano said with a smile.

Cano was asked who deserves the MVP.

"I would say, whoever you guys pick. That’s not my choice," the second baseman said.

The Detroit Tigers boast two candidates in Miguel Cabrera and Justin Verlander. The Boston Red Sox offer Dustin Pedroia, Jacoby Ellsbury and Adrian Gonzalez for consideration. Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista is right in the mix. And then there's Cano's teammate, Curtis Granderson.

Cano is batting .305 with 27 home runs and 116 RBIs on the year.
