but i don't really recall seeing a lot of people saying that cano is "garbage" or "crap" or "he'll suck".


exactly !!!!


Maybe the 15 page thread back in August, where everyone was jumping on the bash Cano bandwagon in the face of the Bellhorn signing.

But I guess that doesn't actually matter. ;-7

another clueless statement by a clueless fan ..

I just went and read that thread ...
for starters it was only 7 pages, and secondly there was only one guy .... ONE ... who said Cano sucks ... and he gave a very compelling arguement ...


Get a clue :-t

Little clue for you clueless Yanks fans ..



WE HAVE NO FRICKING CHOICE BUT TO WATCH THAT CRAP THAT GEORGE PUTS ON THE FIELD.

Oh and how fricking sad is it, that after spending 200 million on a team, the apparent "saving grace" is a .290 hitting rookie, that bats 9th in the lineup :-t

and lastly ...

Lo .. I hate the Yankees, and will always hate the Yankees. No amont of whining about it on your part is going to change that..

The Yankees SUCK!

Who peed in your Cheerios?? I presonally don't care what team you hate. That's your right. As for watching them play, I think that watching more games allows you to give a better opinion of a player. I understand that ESPN and Fox shove them down your throats. You don't have to watch it, though. ;-D

Cano I don't know as much about but he looks decent; he also seems to have trouble with consistency. I think Reyes will be a better player but Cano seems to be decent to me.


That's fair but also usually the case for all rookies. Very few make it through their first season without a few hiccups. That's why the criticism of him is so alarming. He came out of nowhere, did very well, and then went into a slump. It's a game of adjustments and the pitchers adjusted to him. Now, the tide has turned.

no its not like that ...
As I read thru this thread, what stands out to me is the constant banter by Yank fans, "You don't watch every Yankee game so you don't know what you are talking about" .. Nobody watches every baseball game. Not Rosenthal, Not Gammons, Nobody. Do they "not know what they are talking about"? I'd beg to differ .. so for Yank fan to come in here and assume that we are a bunch of idiots because we don't watch every game in just assinine :-t

I promise you I lose more knowledge about the game in the sweat dripping off of my (o) sac, than a few of the posters in here that call themselves Yankees fans, have ever gained.

Not all, but Most ..

Now is their some solid Yankee fans/posters .. You betcha! A few of them I even lean on from time to time..
Yourself, MMmoney and AT come to mind off the top of my head, and I may have even missed a few, so aplogies, but it just gets a little old reading his bullcrap every day.

I understand completely but it works both ways. Just like there are poster Yankee fans that claim that they watch all of the games and they don't, there are also Yankee haters that come on here and look at nothing other than the Yahoo statline when they critique players. That's where I was going. Personally, I know that I could count on 1 hand the amount of Yankee games that I have missed this year. Whatever that means is subjective. Either way, I thank my lucky stars that they brought up Cano this year because he has been a nice addition. Whatever happens down the line, who knows?? I just know that I like what I have seen so far. :-)

I have had Cano as my MI in my money since a week after he got called up, and have been very happy with him. But then again, what do I know, I don't watch every Yankee game so I must be an idiot.
