Robinson Cano got a front row seat for Fernando Tatis' raw power and talent after watching him take batting practice with the World Baseball Classic Dominican Republic team, and made no secret of the fact that he would like to see that power added to the NY Yankees lineup.  Tatis replaced Rodriguez on the WBC Dominican team lineup after Rodriguez's steroid cyst required him to undergo classic ending surgery.  "The guy is a beast," Cano told reporters outside his locker in the Dominican clubhouse, "I don't think anybody would turn down the opportunity to have a guy like that protecting the top of your order."  "A-rod is good, too, though" he quickly added.
