Disappointed in Robinson Cano

I didn't like what I saw from Robbie tonight.

Sure he had four hits, but he only saw 14 pitches- 6 of those came in his 4th inning AB. Of those 14, he was behind in the count in the 2nd, 4th, and 9th.

In the 6th, he swung (and got a hit) on the first pitch from Shields after Giambi and Matsui had gone down on 3 pitches combined. I dislike absolutes, so I'm not going to say you have to take the pitch in that situation, but I was not impressed.
